A Pretty Home Wedding.
At the home of Mrs. J. H. Becker of LeRoy occurred the marriage of her daughter, Miss Martha, to Mr. Harry Cooper, on Tuesday afternoon, June 19th, at one o’clock. The marriage ceremony was performed by the groom’s uncle, Dr. R. W. Cooper of Chicago who used the ring ceremony of the M. E. Church.
Before the ceremony Miss Yager played and sang at the close of which the bride and groom took their places in the parlor where Rev. Cooper spoke the words that united this young couple for life, in the presence of immediate relatives and a few friends. After the congratulations all were invited into the dining room where light refreshments were served.
The bride looked charming in a light green traveling suit and the groom was attired in a blue suit. The bride is a pleasing young lady with many accomplishments and is one of LeRoy’s school teachers who counts her friends by her acquaintances. The groom although not very well known here is a gentlemanly appearing young man who holds the position of Supt. of the Bayfield, Wis. schools.
The happy couple left by auto the same afternoon and will spend the summer at the groom’s cozy cottage at Cable, Wis., after which they will be at home to their friends in Bayfield.
The out of town relatives and friends who came to attend the wedding were Dr. Cooper of Chicago, an uncle of the groom, D. M. Cooper of Fayette, Ia., a cousin of the groom, Miss Loraine Day of McGregor, Ia., and Miss Lavon Hartiman of Chicago, friends of the family.
The best wishes of their host of friends go with them to their Wisconsin home to which the Independent heartily joins--LeRoy Independent.
