A very charming wedding took place Tuesday morning at 9:00 o’clock at St. Mary’s Catholic church, Rev. L. J. Lang reading the marriage ceremony, when Miss Marie Gierl, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gierl of the town of Hull, became the bride of Mr. Oliver Kesler, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kesler of the town of Colby. A large number of friends and relatives were present. Mrs. Walter Harrison of Milwaukee, sister of the bride, acted as matron of honor and Miss Anita Kesler, sister of the groom. was bridesmaid. The groom was attended by his brother, Leon Kesler, and Theodore Rohlinger, cousin of the bride. Little Bobby Gierl, nephew of the bride, acted as ring bearer and carried the rings on a satin pillow.

The bride was attired in a beautiful dress of white satin with train and veil, cap effect, caught with orange blossoms and trimmed with lace. Her bouquet consisted of calla lilies and ferns. The matron of honor wore a dress of peach mousse-line-de-soie and her bouquet consisted of white carnations and yellow tea roses. Miss Kesler wore a dress of pale green crepe and her bouquet consisted of pink roses and ferns.

After the ceremony, a reception and dinner was given at the home of the bride’s parents, covers being laid for seventy. The house was nicely decorated with crepe paper streamers and white bells for the occasion. In the evening, a dancing party was held at Wiedenhoeft’s pavilion.
