The groom was attended by Ernest Gloff, brother of the bride who acted as best man, also by Ezra Schaefer the groom’s brother. The groom’s sister, Miss Edna Schaefer, of Baraboo, was maid of honor and Miss Ida Grottke, a close friend of the bride, also attended her as bridesmaid. Mendelssohn’s wedding march was played by Erich Sievert, principal of St. John’s Lutheran School. "Take Thou Our Hands and Lead Us" was sung by Rosalie Stelter, Bertha Stelter and Bertha Gloff.
