Marx, Celia (Marriage - 1 SEP 1920)

A pretty wedding took place at st. Mary’s Church on Wednesday, Sept. 1, 1920, when Miss Celia Marx, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Marx of this city (Neillsville, Clark County, Wis.), was united in marriage to James J. Caton, son of Mrs. Ruth Caton of Eau Claire, Wis. The ceremony was performed by Rev. P. Weber and Lohengrin’s wedding march was played by Sister M. Reingardis.

The bride was beautifully gowned in white satin, wore a veil arranged in Lucille fashion and carried a shower bouquet of bride’s roses. She was attended by her sister, Miss Helene Marx who wore white organdie gown, a picture hat and a corsage bouquet of Ophelia roses. The groom was attended by Bernard J. Haas of this city.

The Marx home was attractively decorated for the occasion with ferns and baskets of cut flowers. A huge wedding bell hung in the dining room. A wedding dinner was served to fifty guests who were close relatives of the bride and groom.

The bride was the recipient of many beautiful gifts among them a very fine walnut cabinet Singer sewing machine with electric motor. This was presented to her by the firm of Horn & Blum Mfg. Co., of Eau Claire, where she has held a responsible position for ten years.

The groom also holds a responsible position with the Krell Shirt Factory at Eau Claire.
