The ceremony was performed in the Evangelical Lutheran Church, Chili, under an arch covered with ferns and jonquils, banked with two huge baskets of calla lilies and jonquils and other plants and two bouquets of red roses and white jonquils on the altar. The Rev. William A. Lauterbach read the marriage vows.
