Meyers, Stella (Marriage - 22 SEP 1919)

One of the prettiest events the Phonograph has ever recorded took place at Green Grove, Clark County, Wis., when Miss Stella Meyers and her twin sister, Miss Della Meyers, were joined in wedlock to Mr. John Salter of Pittsville and Mr. George Gebhardt of Milwaukee, respectively.

The ceremony was performed in St. John's Lutheran Church at Green Grove on Monday afternoon, Sept. 22, 1919, by the Rev. Aug. Behrendt, the date being the twenty-second anniversary of the birth of the brides.

To the strains of a beautiful wedding march the brides, escorted by their father between them, marched into the church and to the altar, where he gave them away to the waiting grooms.

The brides were becomingly dressed alike in navy blue suits and each wore corsage bouquets of roses.

After the ceremony a bountiful wedding dinner was served at the home of the brides' parents, the house being tastefully decorated with autumn leaves and a profusion of flowers. At midnight ice cream and cake was served to the invited guests.

The brides are the daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Meyers, of the town of Green Grove, Clark County, Wis. and, to say the least, they are extremely charming young ladies. Both are graduates of the Colby High School and are held in the highest esteem by all their old schoolmates and a host of admiring friends.

Mr. Salter is the youngest son of Mrs. R. B. Salter of this city, born and brought up here, and is a fine young man in every respect. He is also a graduate of our high school and the state university. He enlisted in the arm and served in France for more than a year, being attached to the quartermaster's department. Prior to his enlistment he had been associated with his brother, H. G. Salter, in the mercantile business at Pittsville, returning to resume his share of the business immediately after receiving his discharge from the army.

We are not acquainted with Mr. Gebhardt, but can say for him, like Mr. Salter, that he used mighty good judgement in choosing a bride. The young man is a Milwaukee product and is the manager of a large printing establishment in the Wisconsin metropolis.

The next day after the wedding the happy couple departed on a honeymoon trip by automobile, and will visit Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison and other places. After the trip, Mr. and Mrs. Salter will be at home to their friends in Pittsville, and Mr. and Mrs. Gebhardt will do likewise in Milwaukee.

Those from away who attended the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Sampe of Somerset, Mrs. A. G. Meyers of Madison and Mrs. Gebhardt of Milwaukee.
