Baehr, Elna (6 NOV 1924)

On Thursday afternoon, Nov. 6th, 1924, Miss Elna Baehr, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Baehr, was united in marriage to Mr. Herbert Wilhelmi, at St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Rev. V. M. Kieper officiating.

At 1:30 the bridesmaids, the Misses Norma and Clara Baehr, sister and cousin of the bride, entered the church slowly, followed by the groomsmen attending the groom. Then appeared the bride accompanied by her father, who gave the bride away during the ceremony. They were met by the groom, who had superceded the father leading the bride to the altar. Rev. Kieper preached a very fitting sermon.

The bride was lovely in a beautiful gown of white satin trimmed with shadow lace and her veil was arranged in the shape of a crown, set with pearls. She carried a shower bouquet of pink roses and chrysanthemums. The lady attendants wore tan silk dresses trimmed with lace and a gold band as head dress.

After the ceremony they all repaired to the home of the bride's parents where a bountiful repast was served to about eighty-five guests.

The home was daintily decorated in pink and white with green ferns. The Misses Cora and Dora Schilling, Mildred Voss, and Alice Nixdorf waited on the table and looked after the comfort of the guests.

The bride is an attractive and popular young lady, well known and well liked, and we shall surely miss her, but our loss is Mr. Wilhelmi's gain so he is to be congratulated upon his wise choice.

The young couple will leaves Saturday evening for Milwaukee where they will make their future home. With them goes the wishes of their many Dorchester friends for a happy journey through life together.
