Waters, Katherine (16 OCT 1929)

A very impressive fall wedding took place Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 9:30 a.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Chicago. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Father Doyal. The bridal party was George Elsinger of Loyal and Katherine Waters of Chicago.

The bridal party marched to the tune of "Lohengrin’s" Wedding March. The bride was escorted to the railing by her grandfather, John Paulus. She was met by the groom at the railing. While making their marriage vows, the song, "I love You Truly" was being sung.

The bride looked very charming in egg shell satin and veil of real lace. She carried a shower bouquet of white roses and lilies of the valley. Miss Dorothy Waters, maid of honor was dressed in apricot murray, and carried a bouquet of bronze chrysanthemums. Miss Elsie Waters, brides maid was attired in green murray, and carried a bouquet of pink chrysanthemums. Each wore large velvet hats and slippers to match. Both are sisters of the bride.

The groom was attended by Gilbert Eshweiler of Milwaukee as best man, and Joseph Pirola of Chicago. They all were dressed in full formal.

At eleven o’clock a four course wedding breakfast was served to the Bridal Part, and invited guests at the Edgewater Beach Hotel. The table decoration was a large wedding cake, and center pieces of pompoms. Later in the afternoon, a light dinner was served at the bride’s home, which is with her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. John Paulus.

The bride is a daughter of Mrs. Elsie Waters of Chicago. She was a high school graduate of the Emaculata, after which she did clerical work at the Art Institute.

The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Elsinger of the town of Loyal. He is a graduate of the Loyal high school with the class of 1923. He also attended Marquette University, taking up Civil Engineering for five years and graduated with the class of June 5, 1928. He now has a very promising position with the Lewis and Coultort Co., at Pittsburgh Pa., where the couple will make their future home.

The Tribune joins the many friends of the newlyweds in extending Congratulations.
