Jordan, Rose (13 JAN 1913)

Wearing a floor length gown of white satin designed with a lace back, and sleeves forming a point over the wrist, Miss Rose Jordan, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Frank Arch, Greenwood, before an altar banked with flowers and tal candles. The Rev. J.J. Novak, pastor of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Greenwood, read the 9 o’clock nuptial high mass on Saturday, Jan. 13, 1940.

Miss Jordan’s finger tip veil was caught at the crown with orange blossoms. She wore white satin slippers, and carried a bouquet of white carnations. Miss Josephine Jordan, sister of the bride, attended as bridesmaid, wearing a floor length rose taffeta gown with short puffed sleeves and ruffles at the bottom of the skirt. Silver slippers, headdress of orchid and a bouquet of pink snapdragons completed her costume. Steve Arch, brother of the groom, was best man. The men wore dark suits with boutonnieres of pink and white carnations. Appropriate music was furnished during the mass.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Jordan, Greenwood, and a graduate of Greenwood High School, the groom is a son of Louis Arch, also of Greenwood.

A wedding breakfast and dinner were served to immediate relatives and friends at the home of the bride’s parents and a supper was served to approximately 90 guests. The home was decorated in white, pink and green streamers and a large wedding cake was the centerpiece for the table. In the evening a wedding dance was held at the Catholic Hall in Willard.
