Finster, Marie (Marriage - 8 OCT 1908)

A very pretty wedding took place last Thursday Oct. 8, 1908, at the Ev. Lutheran Church when Mr. Carl Krause of Thorp, Clark County, Wis., and Miss Marie Finster from here were united in marriage.

Shortly before 4 p.m. the sweet strains of "Lohengrin" sounded through the edifice and the bridal party marched to the altar.

The bride was dressed in Point D'Esprit over white silk and carried bridal roses while the groom wore the conventional black. Miss Martha Finster, sister of the bride, was bridesmaid, and Mr. Albert Krause, cousin of the groom, acted as best man. The other attendees were Emil Finster, Otto Finster, Walter Yandry and the Misses Anna Krause, Freda Schrant and Caroline Whitney.

Rev. M. Guebert gave a very impressive address and performed the ceremony. Amidst the jubilant strains of Valenti the party left the church.

An elaborate repast was served at the home of the bride's parents. Plates were laid for 120.

The presents received by the bride were both numerous and pretty. Mr. and Mrs. Krause left for their new home in Thorp, Clark Co., Wis., last Monday accompanied by the best wishes of their many friends.

Among the out of town people who attended the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Krause, Thorp, Wis., Mr. A. Krause and Miss Anna Krause, Ft. Atkinson, Mrs. P. Whitney and daughter of Portage and Rev. and Mrs. R. Finster, of Culbertson, Neb. (Rock County Banner, Clinton, Wis.)
