Geiger, Anna (11 MAY 1926)

(bad microfilm, so some words are cut off)

Miss Anna Geiger and Mr. Anton Wittman were united in marriage at St. Louis Catholic Church Tuesday morning, Rev. Paul Pitzenberger conducting the service.

The bride was becomingly dressed in a white crepe de chein gown with sash and veil and carried a shower bouquet of white carnations, in what was one of the most beautiful couples married in that Church, Mae Geiger, a sister of the bride, was bridesmaid and wore orchid georgette and carried a bouquet of pink and white carnations, while Clara Wittman, a sister of the groom, acted as maid of honor and wore a pea green crepe de chein dress and carried a bouquet of pink and white carnations. Both wore beautiful head bands. The gentleman attendants were ? Geiger, brother of the bride, and ? Wittman, brother of the groom, and they all wore the usual ? suits.

After the ceremony they all went to the bride's home where a bounteous meal was served to about 75 people. Serving the dinner was in the capable hands of Mesdames E. Sorenson and A. Nachtwey. The ? were beautifully decorated with red, white and green to match the colors of the ladies in the bridal party. The table was also nicely decorated with ferns and a delicious looking wedding cake decorated with ferns and a beautiful ornament held place of honor.

After dinner the bridal party drove to Medford for pictures at the Dake ?. Upon their return they enjoyed themselves as the rest with ? and singing, and at 5:30 a delicious repast was served.

At 8:30 everyone repaired to Mid?, where a wedding dance was give and they sure had a good time.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Geiger and has spent her life here and is well known as a ? young lady, well liked by all who know her. Thought the groom is not well known here yet as he came to the Dorchester, Clark County, Wis. recently, still he has made friends who speak well of him and too, he made such a wise choice in a life partner, which speaks well of himself.

They will make their future home on Mrs. Jake Lapp's farm 5 ½ miles west of town, which the groom has rented. The Clarion joins a host of friends in wishing them many happy years together.

Those out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. Mike Wittman Sr. and daughter Regina, Mr. and Mrs. Mike Wittman Jr. and family, Mr. and Mrs. ? Wittman, Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Wittman, Mr.a nd Mrs. John Geiger and family, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Havill, son Ralph and daughter ? f Little Chute and Mary ? of Stratford. Those from Dorchester Country were Mr. and Mrs. Ed Meyer and family, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Geiger and family. Mr. and Mrs. John Staab and family, Rev.
