Weirich, Minnie D. (24 Dec 1907)

Yesterday at the house of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Weirich, at high noon in Sumpter, Wis., occurred one of the prettiest weddings of the season. Urban D. Mather and Miss Minnie D. Weirich, surrounded by friends and relatives, joined hands and hearts in holy wedlock. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Droegkamp of the Prairie du Sac German Evangelical Association. The bride was gowned in a handsome Copenhagen blue silk, with white lace trimmings, and carried bride’s roses. The groom wore the conventional black. The numerous gifts, including silver, linen, furniture, cash, and many useful articles, showed the high esteem in which the young couple is held by their many friends.

Miss Weirich is one of Sumpter’s fairest daughters, a graduate of the Prairie du Sac High School, and since then has been a teacher in Sumpter.

Mr. Mather has many friends in Baraboo, being a graduate of Baraboo High School in 1896. He is a prosperous young farmer and a man of fine character and sterling worth.

The wedding dinner was served to nearly one hundred guests, shortly after which the bride and groom were hurried away in a much decorated carriage to meet the 4:30 train at Merrimack. After a short visit in Milwaukee and Chicago, they will be at home to their friends in their newly purchased home on the Shively Mather farm.

The guests from out of town were Mr. and Mrs. John P. Weirich and daughter of Owen, Wisconsin, Mr. and Mrs. S. V. Albertson of Columbus, Wisconsin, Mrs. John Wagner of Madison, Mrs. Adolph Ochsner of Plain, Wisconsin, Miss Cora Siebecker, Miss Mary Louise Van Orden, Mr. Schyler S. Van Orden, Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Lewis of Baraboo.
