Boughton, Ivah E. (Marriage - 30 JUN 1920)

A very pretty wedding occurred at the Methodist Church in Loyal, Clark County, Wis. at 8:30 in the evening on Wednesday, June 30, 1920, when Miss Ivah E. Boughton and Mr. Frank G. Wehling were united in the holy bonds of matrimony, Rev. Chatterson officiating.

The church had been beautifully decorated for the occasion and just as twilight was falling at the end of a perfect day, the church doors were opened and strains of soft music were heard as the wedding party entered.

The bridal couple was attended by Miss Elizabeth Fauss and Miss Bertha Morse of Kilburn, Wis., cousins of the bride, who acted as bridesmaids.

The groom was attended by George Boughton, brother of the bride, and his brother, Albert Wehling.

The bride wore a beautiful gown of white georgette and satin. Her long tulle veil hung from a cap of Maybells. She carried a shower bouquet of white roses, lilies of the valley and swainsons.

The bridesmaids were also very prettily gowned. Miss Fauss wore a dress of pink georgette and carried an arm bouquet of ophelia roses and ferns. Miss Morse wore a dress of blue georgette and satin and carried an arm bouquet of cream ophelia roses and ferns.

The bride was preceded down the aisle of the church by Elsie Wehling, niece of the groom and Louie Mathwig, niece of the bride, who acted as flower girls. They were attired in white organdie dresses and carried large baskets of pink roses. This undoubtedly was the most beautiful wedding ceremony that ever took place in this vicinity.

A solo "Oh Promise Me", sung by Miss Verna Jackson, aided greatly in beautifying the services.

After the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents. A delicious dinner was served to relatives and intimate friends. The house was beautifully decorated with pin and white roses and ferns. A color scheme of pink, white and green predominated. The evening was most pleasantly spent with music. Those present had a most enjoyable time.

The bride is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Boughton, although living here only a few years has gained by her quiet refined manner, her loving disposition and beautiful character, a wide circle of friends.

The groom is the son of Mrs. John Wehling, a modest quiet young man of sterling qualities.

After a wedding trip to the Wis. Dells, Madison and Milwaukee, they will be at home on the groom's farm.

The happy young couple was the recipient of many useful and beautiful presents and the best wishes of the community go with them for a long and happy journey on the matrimonial sea.
