Piper, Myrtle (Marriage - 14 AUG 1919)

Married, at the Methodist Episcopal Church Parsonage at Colby, Wis., at high noon on Aug. 14, 1919, Mr. Gustave A. Carlson to Miss Myrtle Piper, Rev. Paul officiating.

The wedding ceremony which united this well known young couple was witnessed only by the members of the family. The bride was very charmingly dressed in a gown of white satin and georgett and wore a corsage bouquet of pink roses. Miss Elsie Carlson acted as bridesmaid and wore a creation Sunset Shade of satin and wore yellow roses. The groom was carefully looked after by George Carlson.

After the ceremony the wedding party drove back to the home of the bride, where a wedding dinner was served. The home was beautifully decorated in yellow and white and the flowers used were white and yellow roses and sweet peas.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. George Piper and has grown to womanhood in this village (Unity, Clark County), and she numbers her friends only by the extent of her acquaintances, she possesses many womanly attainments that will make her a home builder for the husband of her choice.

The groom is an ex-service man who has but recently returned from overseas and in this fact alone the bride will find that assurance of protection that makes home life one of contentment and happiness. Gus is a young man of most excellent character and is held in highest esteem by all who know him. The friends of both bride and groom join with us in extending congratulations and best wishes.

The young people departed amidst a shower of rice on the limited train on a wedding journey through southern Wisconsin. They will be at home after Sept. 1st.
