Kops, Adelia (30 NOV 1915)

One of the prettiest of home weddings was solemnized at the Richard Kurth home at 6 o’clock Tuesday evening, Nov. 30th, 1915, when their oldest son, Mr. Arthur Kurth, with Miss Adelia Kops, took the sacred marriage vows and were, by Rev. Jos. Reiff, pronounced man and wife.

The bride wore a beautiful dress of white and pink messaline with white shadow lace over dress and the usual bridal veil. She carried a bouquet of pink carnations and white chrysanthemums. Her sister, Miss Elsie Kops, in a pretty dress of light blue silk, acted as bridesmaid, while the groom’s brother, Hilton Kurth, acted as best man. The gentlemen wore the usual dark suits. The groom’s sister, Miss Elsie Kurth, at the piano played the wedding march and the ceremony was witnessed by some 50 guests, relatives of the contracting parties. The Kurth home was attractively Dec
orated in a color scheme of pink and white, carried out in the flowers, crepe paper and ferns.

Immediately after the ceremony the bridal party and guests were banqueted at a wedding supper, covers having been laid for sixty.

The newlyweds will take up their residence on the farm of the groom’s parents and in the house just vacated by them. The parents having but recently moved into their new house built last year. The groom is an industrious, worthy and practical young farmer who is associated in that industry with his father, where he is making good.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Kops, farmers residing in Wood County, a capable, practical popular young woman of pleasant appearance who has many friends hereabouts.

That their life may be one of real happiness and success is the wish of all who know them, and in which the News heartily joins.

Among the out of town relatives attending were Mr. and Mrs. Gandt of West Bend; Mrs. Wm. Uthmeier, Mrs. Herman Tillock and Miss Bertha Gandt of Marshfield; Mrs. Robert Kurth and several others from Neillsville; Mr. and Mrs. Herman Kops, Otto, Elma and Elsie Kops of Marshfield. – Granton News
