A beautiful wedding occurred at St. Peter's church at 3 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon of this week. The contracting parties were Mr. Will Fischer and Miss Ludelia Thoma. Promptly at 3 o'clock the bride, attended by her cousin Miss Eva Moetsch, of Postville, and groom, attended by his brother, Otto Fischer, entered the church and marched to the alter to the strains of Walter Decker's Wedding Fanfare, played by Miss Iona Pahlas. The wedding ceremony was performed by Rev. Joseph Mall, pastor of St. Peter's church. After the ceremony the invited guests assembled at the home of the bride's parents where a bountiful wedding supper was served at 4 o'clock.

The bride was tastefully dressed in white silk trimmed with insertion and overlace, white gloves and slippers and hat to match. The groom wore the customary black.

They were the recipients of many beautiful presents.

Among those present from a distance were, Mrs. Hiram Hammond, the bride's grandmother; and Miss Eva Moetsch, of Postville; and Mrs. Louis Schroeder and daughter, of Guttenberg.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Fischer, of Clayton township, and is well and favorably known to the people of this vicinity as an exemplary young man of good habits. The bride is the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Thoma and was born and raised in Garnavillo. She is a graduate of the Garnavillo High School, class of 1904, and is fitted in every way to make a most excellent companion and helpmate.

We extend our congratulations and wish them health, happiness, and a prosperous voyage through life.
