Schilling, Dorothy (9 JUN 1926)

Miss Dorothy Schilling, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Schilling, was united in marriage Wednesday, June 9th, 1926, at 8 o'clock in the morning to Julius Feind of Colby, at St. Louis Catholic Church, Rev. Paul Pitzenberger officiating.

Miss Cora Schilling, a twin sister of the bride, acted as maid of honor and Miss Gertrude Feldbrugge was bridesmaid. The gentlemen attendants were Norbert Wuest and Arnold Schilling, the later a brother of the bride.

The bride was beautifully gowned in a dress of white flat crepe with a gathered flounce of flat crepe and georgette inset with beautiful wide sill lace insertion and georgette at the bottom of the flounce, was draped up at equal intervals with lilies of the valley. She wore white silk hose and silver brocaded slippers, a picture hat that gave just the right touch to her beautiful costume while her shower bouquet was of roses and carnations.

The maid of honor wore a dress of yellow crepe trimmed with black velvet and the bridesmaid's dress was of pink crepe trimmed with black velvet. They both carried pink carnations.

The bridegroom and his attendants wore the usual conventional dark suit; the groom had a rose for a buttonhole bouquet and the groomsmen carnations.

After the ceremony they motored to Medford and had their pictures taken at the Dake Studio. Returning tot he Schilling home, a mile south of the village, a lovely three-course wedding dinner was served.

The room was decorated in pink, white and yellow streamers and table bouquets of the same color in keeping with the dresses of the bride and her maids. Miss Marie Feldbrugge, Norma Baehr, and Hannah and Alma Afrank served the wedding dinner and looked after the general welfare of the guests.

The only outside guests, besides the family and the close friends, were Mr. Feind's folks, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Feind and family and Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Schulz and family of Colby, and Rev. Pitzenberger.

They spent a pleasant afternoon visiting and in the evening they had a free wedding dance at Wiedenhoeft Park at Colby.

Mr. Feind is a nephew of Mr. Wiedenhoeft. Dorothy needs very little introduction to our readers for the Schilling came here (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.) when their girls were little tots and have made a host of friends and Dorothy is a fine popular girl who deserves lots of good things. Mr. Feind is a Colby young man and is not much known here but he surely made a good choice and that speaks well for him.

The young couple will make their home with the Schillings as Mr. Schilling is not real well and they need reliable help. Neither will Mr. and Mrs. Schilling have to part with their daughter.

The Clarion joins a host of friends in offering congratulations and may they have a goodly portion of the good things of life.
