Rowe, Dorothy L. (3 APR 1930)

A pretty wedding took place last Thursday evening when Miss Dorothy Lenore Rowe, of Minneapolis became the bride of Mr. Richard F. Gruber of this village. The ceremony was performed at the home of the bride’s parents, by the Rev. R. W. Warren, pastor of Hobart M. E. Church, before an improvised altar of palms, epbotium ferns and Easter lilies with lighted candelabra furnishing the illumination. The service was read at 8 o’clock in the presence of the immediate families and a few friends. As the bridal party entered a prelude of nuptial music and the "Bridal Chorus" from "Lohengren" was played by Miss Ellen Hulbert. Miss Virginia Rowe, sister of the bride, attended her as maid of honor. Mr. George Gruber of Milwaukee acted as his brother’s best man. The bride was given in marriage by her father. The bride wore a gown of orchid taffeta made with long full skirt which formed a train in the back. The fitted bodice was made sleeveless and the neckline was v-shaped. She wore a necklace of crystals and pearls and carried a shower bouquet of roses, sweet peas and baby breath. The maid of honor was attired in a pale green satin canton crepe gown made on princess lines with a sleeveless bodice and low neckline. Her bouquet was of roses and sweet peas; crystal and pearls formed her necklace. The bride’s mother wore a gown of rose silk crepe and a necklace of pearls.

An informal reception for 35 guests followed the ceremony. Roses and sweet peas centered the dining room table. The newlyweds left for a short wedding trip, the bride wearing for travel a green silk ensemble with hat accessories to match.

Among the out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. O. C. Lucas of Oshkosh, Mr. George Gruber and Mrs. Frank Duffus of Milwaukee, the Misses Emilie and Irene Gruber, Mr. Albert Gruber and Mr. Milton Gruber of Chicago.

The newlyweds will reside in this village. Mr. Gruber has been with the O. & N. Lumber Co. Yards.

The Tribune joins with the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Gruber in wishing them a long and happy wedded life.
