Skibbe, Ella (21 JUN 1930)

A pretty wedding was solemnized Saturday morning at 2 o’clock at the Evangelical Church, Rev. P.F. Walter officiating, when Ella Skibbe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Skibbe, and Eugene Porter of Waterloo, were united in the bonds of matrimony. Clara and Otto Skibbe, sister and brother of the bride, were the attendants.

The church was a bower of loveliness, dainty pink and white streamers forming an arch, the front of the church banked with red and white peonies, the altar rail twined with white streamers and peonies were place at equal intervals among the streamers. The bridal party entered to the strains of Love’s Old Sweet Song" played by the bride’s cousin, Myrtle Will, and took their places for the ceremony. After the ceremony the audience sang "Jesus Savior, Pilot Me."

The bride was daintily attired in a deep cream flat crepe dress and wore roses in her hair and carried a bouquet of roses and mixed flowers. The bridesmaid wore an orchid flat crepe dress and also carried a bouquet of roses and mixed flowers.

The couple will make their home at Waterloo where the groom is a florist. They are spending a two week honeymoon trip at the Chain-O-Lakes.

We join their friends in offering best wishes for a prosperous long life.
