Mathwig, Loiree E. (4 SEP 1937)

Baskets of variegated garden flowers, potted plants and large vases filled with white and pink gladiolas and lighted tapers before a beautiful white arch covered with yellow roses formed a lovely setting in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Mathwig, Loyal, for the wedding of their daughter Loiree Elnora and Marvin A. Christman, Hartford, Hartford, Wis., son of Mrs. Lozetta Christman, Loyal.

She carried a beautiful shower bouquet of pink bridal roses, babies breath, swansonia and ferns.
