Staves, Matie Emelia (Marriage - 14 OCT 1919)

Happy Wedding Last Tuesday

The home of Mr. and Mrs. George Staves in the town of Cleveland, was the scene of a very pretty wedding Tuesday afternoon, when their only daughter, Matie Emelia was united in marriage to Stevie D. Smith. Rev. J. B. Braddock performed the ceremony using the beautiful and impressive ring service.

They were married in the bay window of the parlor beneath an arch decorated with autumn leaves, white dahlias, and white wedding bells. The dining room was decorated with white and green, and large bouquets of beautifully colored dahlias.

The young couple were attended by Miss Margaret Smith, a sister of the groom, and Mr. William Staves, a brother of the bride. The bride was daintily attired in a gown of white satin and georgette crepe. She wore a full veil and a wreath of pink and white roses. The bridesmaid was tastily dressed in white crepe de chin and carried a beautiful bouquet of pink roses and white chrysanthemums. The groom and best man wore suits of navy. Immediately after the ceremony a bountiful wedding supper was served to about 35 guests. In the evening a reception was given to a large number of friends. Dancing was indulged in till the wee sam' hours of the morning. Many useful and beautiful gifts were received by the bride.

Mr. Smith has chosen for his helpmate a beautiful and accomplished young lady who is well known here, having spent her entire life in the community. Mr. Smith is an industrious young man now employed in the Gillette tire factory in Eau Claire. The newly wedded couple will be at home to their many friends after Nov. 1 at 705 Dodge St., Eau Claire. They have the best wishes and congratulations of all.

Guests from away who attended the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. F. Raether, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Wendt, Neillsville; Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Smith and family of River Falls; Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Lubinski and family of Hudson; Miss Alice Fowler, Wausau.
