Rockford, Ill. - In a service read at 4 o’clock in the afternoon before the fireplace in the home of Mr. and Mrs. William E. Dorn, 5348 North 2nd St., their daughter, Dorothy, became the bride of Sgt. William Heidemann, son of Mr. and Mrs. E.F. Heidemann of Thorp, Clark Co., Wis.)

White tapes and white chrysanthemums were used as decoration at the fireplace, and for her marriage the bride wore a gown of white crepe, with beaded jacket and a white mum in her hair. Red roses and white mums made up her bridal bouquet. Her sister, Mrs. Albert Schmeling, was the bride’s only attendant, in a frock of rose with dubonnet trim and she carried pink roses and blue mums. Charles Anderson of Thorp was best man for his brother-in-law.

A wedding dinner was served at 5:30 at the Wagon Wheel, the bridal party returning to the Dorn home where they held open house from 7 until 9. The bride’s mother wore a frock of brown and the groom’s mother was in navy blue, both with corsages of yellow roses and bronze and yellow pompoms.

A short wedding trip was taken by the bride and groom, and for traveling Mrs. Heidemann wore a dress and hat of defense blue.

Out of town guests here for the wedding included the bride’s grandmother, Mrs. Anna Miller, and Miss Mabel Miller of Maywood; Mrs. Inga Newberg of Melrose Park; the groom’s parents and his brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Anderson of Thorp.
