Viergutz, Elda I. (24 NOV 1917)

An especially pretty, though quiet wedding, was solemnized at the Maple Works German Lutheran Parsonage at 2 o'clock last Saturday afternoon, Nov. 24th, 1917, when Rev. Hasz spoke the words which united in the holy bonds of matrimony, Miss Elda Ida Viergutz and Mr. Clark Brooks. The bride was beautifully dress in white crepe de chine with Georgette crepe, mescaline and silver bead trimmings. She carried a shower bouquet of bridal roses and lilies of the valley, and was attended by her sister, Miss Irene Viergutz, who wore a gown of pink silk crepe de chine with georgette crepe and gold lace trimmings. Miss Irene carried a bouquet of white chrysanthemums. Leo Grassman attended the groom and all gentlemen wore the usual black.

Directly after the ceremony, which was witnessed by relatives only, the bridal party went by auto to Neillsville where the wedding picture was taken, then returning to the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Viergutz of Lynn, a big reception and bounteous wedding supper was had, although the guests were, on account of ill health of the bride's parents, limited to ?? only.

The bride is the third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Viergutz, a charming little lady with hosts of friends. The groom, a son of Mr. Erwin Brooks, is an educated, practiced young farmer associated with his father in that industry on their fine large farm in the town of Lynn, a particularly worthy young man who is bound to succeed. This happy wedded couple will, withing the next two weeks, take up residence here on the Brooks farm, which the groom now assumes management of. Erwin Brooks, his father, plans now on leaving on an extended holiday and vacation trip to the Pacific coast, very shortly.

The bride's sister, Miss Rosa Viergutz, came home from Rochester, Minn., and Mr. and Mrs. Reinhold Viergutz and baby were over from Marshfield and in attendance at the wedding.
