Weix, Verena A. (Marriage - 16 SEP 1919)

A very pretty wedding ceremony took place on Tuesday morning, Sept. 16, 1919, when Miss Verena A. Weix was united in marriage to Mr. Francis J. Steinwand, both of Colby, Wis., the nuptial mass being read by Rev. H. Lachnit at St. Mary's Catholic Church in this city.

The church was very tastefully decorated in white and blue, the colors of the Young Ladies' Sodality, of which society the bride is a member. As the strains of a Wagner wedding march were played by Miss Rose Mick, Master Joseph Weix, Jr., bearing the wedding rings, and little Miss Mary Steinwand, carrying a basket of beautiful mixed flowers, entered the church, followed by the bride and bridesmaids, who were met at the altar by the groom and groomsmen, who made their appearance from a side entrance.

The bride was attired in a beautiful gown of Ivory Francais satin trimmed with pearls.

The bridesmaids, Miss Elizabeth Weix, sister of the bride, and Miss Theodora Steinwand, sister of the groom, were dressed alike in corn colored taffeta and georgette and each carried a bouquet of golden rods and black-eyed susans. The groomsmen were Mr. Joseph Steinwand, Jr., brother of the groom, and Mr. Emil J. Weix, brother of the bride.

Following the ceremonies at the church a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, followed by a bountiful wedding dinner for the bridal party and their relatives. The home was prettily decorated for the occasion with yellow and white streamers and smilax. During the course of the festivities the bride tossed her bouquet from the top of the stairway and it fell into the arms of Theodora Steinwand. More wedding bells, perhaps.

The bridal party left for Marshfield after the reception and had their picture taken, and from there Mr. and Mrs. Steinwand left for a honeymoon trip to various places in the east. They will return to Colby and be at home to their friends after Oct. 1st.

The bride, a most estimable young lady, is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Weix of this city, and is a graduate from the Home Economics Course, St. Mary's Institute at Sparta. She is a great favorite among her young friends and one of the foremost in their social gatherings. During the past few years she has studied millinery and has become quite proficient in that art.

The groom is the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Steinwand of Colby, and is a young man of sterling worth and integrity. He has been associated with his father in the famous Steinwand cheese factory, and will continue in that line of business after their return home.

The Phonograph joins with their large circle of friends in extending heartiest congratulations.
