Tiller, Lillian (26 FEB 1930)

Wednesday evening, before the alter of Zion Lutheran Church, banked with palms and lighted with white tapers in tall branch candelabra, occurred the marriage of Miss Lillian Tiller, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F.C. Tiller, 720 Scott St., Wausau, and Erwin H. Baehr of Detroit, Mich., son of Mrs. Otto Baehr of Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.). The ceremony was performed before a large assemblage of friends and was read by the Rev. P.W. Roehrs.

Music from Wagner’s "Tannhauser" was played by Albert Mueller, church organist, for the wedding march and preceding the service, Mrs. Roehrs sang "Entreat Me Not to Leave Thee," by Gounod.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a lovely gown of parchment chiffon, made in ankle length, with a fitted bodice and very full skirt. Her veil of tulle, of the same shade, hung in a train and was caught in cap effect with a bandeau of lace and with orange blossoms, both taken from the wedding veil of her mother. To complete her costume she carried an arm bouquet of Calla Lilies.

The bride’s sister, Miss Margaret Tiller, was maid of honor and Arthur Baehr of Dorchester, brother of the bridegroom, served as best man.

The maid of honor was attired in pale green Victoria crepe, made with a double tiered skirt and cape, and she carried an arm bouquet of pink roses and orchid sweet peas.

The ceremony was followed by a reception to twenty-five guests at the Milwaukee Railroad Women’s club house. Green and white decorations were used and bowers and tapers decorated the tables at which the wedding supper was served. Guests from out of town included the bridegroom’s mother, Mrs. Otto Baehr, Arthur and Clarence Baehr and Miss Leona Baehr of Dorchester, Miss Amanda Baehr of Milwaukee, Miss Frieda Baehr of Kansas City, and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Tiller of Milwaukee.

Mr. and Mrs. Baehr will reside in Detroit, Mich., and will leave for that city the latter part of the week.

We add to the above from yesterday’s Wausau Record-Herald the well wishes of many friends in Dorchester Country.
