Drummond, Vera A. (10 JUN 1909)

The home of Mr. and Mrs. John Drummond was the scene of a very pretty wedding last Thursday evening when their daughter Vera Alice was united in marriage to John Wuethrich.

About seventy guests were present to witness the ceremony and join in the festivities.

Promptly at half past eight o’clock Miss Grace Shanks struck the opening chords of the wedding march and the wedding party descended the stairs and took their places under the floral canopy in the sitting room.

The flower girls, Roberta Schofield and Janice Shrimpton led the party and were followed by the Reverend W. H. Norton, the officiating minister. The ring-bearer, Thelma Anderson, came next, followed by the bride and groom elect, the bridesmaid, Miss Nellie Youngs, and best man, Mr. Alfred Wuethrich, brother of the groom, forming the rear of the procession.

The party took their places in the sitting room, the couple in the center, immediately back of them their attendants, the flower girls on either side, the ring-bearer, Thelma Anderson, before the groom, and the officiating minister before the couple whom his word was presently to unite for life.

The house was very prettily decorated for the occasion, particularly the bay window where the ceremony took place. The lace curtains were decorated with white lilacs which made a very pretty background. A large bell made of ferns interwoven with white lilacs and smilax hung from the ceiling over the heads of the young couple. Festoons of smilax were hung from the ….(missed some of the text)… bridesmaid and best man matched those of the bride and groom.

When the strains of the wedding march ceased the young couple took their solemn marriage vows, Rev. Norton performing the sacred rites. The groom took the ring from where it rested in the depths of a large rose in the care of the sweet little flower girl and place it on the bride’s finger. The ceremony was a beautiful one and very impressive.

A half-hour of congratulations followed the ceremony and then a bounteous wedding supper was served to the guests. The bridal party was served in the dining roo, the guests being served where they were seated.

A large number of gifts were bestowed on the bride and groom by their many friends.

Guests from out of town were Mrs. James Drummond and Mrs. John Williams of Necedah, the bride’s grandmothers, Alfred Wuethrich of Doylstown, the groom’s brother, and Mrs. O.E. Hoyt of Iron Ridge, the groom’s sister.

The happy couple drove to their new home that evening after the guests had departed. They will occupy the upper part of the Platen house in the Shanktown neighborhood near the Wuethrich Creamery.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Drummond of this city (Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis.). She was born in Necedah where she spent most of her childhood. She came here with her parents about ten years ago. She graduated from the Greenwood High School with the class of "07, Prof. Austin being principal at that time. She is a young lady of estimable character and has a host of friends in the city.

The groom is a young man of good character and habits of industry with a promising future before him. He came here five years ago from Iron Ridge, Wis. He worked for C. Grashorn for two years in the Greenwood Creamery and gained a good reputation as a buttermaker. He then went to Doylstown where he bought a creamery. He operated this for himself for a year when he sold out and returned to Greenwood. He bought stock in the newly organized Farmers Progressive Creamery in the town of Eaton and became manager of the business, which he has conducted up to the present time.
