Schoenwetter, Edith (Marriage - 1916)






----Source: Greenwood Gleaner 07/20/1916




On Thursday afternoon at four o'clock Miss Edith Schoenwetter and Emil Manthey were united in marriage by Rev. Gether of Neillsville. The wedding occurred at the Schoenwetter farm in the in the Town of Weston, Clark County. The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Elsie Schoenwetter and Miss Meta Senhenn and the groom by Frances Frank and George Manthey. The bride wore a very becoming gown of white crepe de chein and carried a shower bouquet of white roses and lilies of the valley. Miss Elsie Schoenwetter wore light blue figured satin and Miss Senhenn wore pink silk taffeta and both carried pink carnations. The ceremony took place beneath an arch and the wedding march was played by Miss Mayme Hemp. The Schoenwetter home was beautifully decorated with white and pink roses. At 5:30 a bounteous wedding dinner was served and in the evening the guests spent several pleasant hours dancing to the music of Keller Bros. Orchestra. There were about 300 guests present.

The bride is a daughter of Mrs. Bertha Schoenwetter and is a young lady of prepossessing appearance, pleasing demeanor and marked ability. The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Manthey of the Town of Seif and is a carpenter and painter by trade. He is a capable and energetic young man and a general favorite with all who know him. The young couple will reside at the Schoenwetter home until fall, when they will take up housekeeping with the best wishes of their many friends for their future happiness.

On Sunday evening Mr. and Mrs. Manthey entertained about 20 of their neighbors at dinner and later about 100 of their friends gathered at their home and again celebrated the wedding with another dance. (Neillsville Times)
