Doering, Esther (15 AUG 1927)

A wedding of great local interest took place at Athens Monday at 12 noon when Miss Esther Doering, a popular Athens young lady, was united in marriage to Herbert Nixdorf, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Al Nixdorf of Dorchester, Clark County, Wis. The ceremony was celebrated at the Trinity Lutheran Church at Athens, Rev. Pichler officiating.

The bride looked like a fairy in her beautiful white satin faced canton crepe gown and the lovely veil with its train and a dainty shower bouquet of roses and lilies of the valley. Her lady attendants, Eleanora Nixdorf and Alice Lehman wore gowns of peach and green georgette respectively and carried the shower bouquets same as the bride. The groom was dressed in the conventional blue and his attendants were Walter Doering, brother of the bride, and Ed Nixdorf, the groom's brother, Fred Neidhold acted as usher.

After the ceremony a lovely dinner was served at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Doering. The house was a bower of loveliness in gay streamers and other decorations of white, green and pink. Some girl friends of the bride helped to serve the dainty dinner to the assembled guests and everyone had a merry afternoon.

About five o'clock the bridal couple left for Chicago, and will also visit southern Wisconsin cities, expecting to be gone a week or so. They expect to be at home to their many friends at Athens about Sept. 1st.

Herbert is well known to most of our readers as he was born and raised in Dorchester country, went to school here and when he decided to be a barber, worked at the Vircks Barber Shop and was well liked. Everyone is delighted at his good fortune, for though the bride is little known here, we can bet on "Nixy" to pick a winner. He is an energetic young man and has made good since going into business for himself at Athens. As we said, we know little of the bride, but we've been told she's as popular among her Athens friends as Herb is her, and we join with a host of friends in offering our very best wishes and many success attend them along life's way.

Those who were there were Mr. and Mrs. Al Nixdorf, Elna and Clarence, of Dorchester, parents, sister and brother of the groom, another sister and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Harder of Stetsonville, Eleanora Nixdorf and Fred Neidhold of Chicago, Mrs. Rachow, Herman and Ed of Wausau and the Lehman family, and a few other Athens friends.
