BRIDE IS ONAWA GIRL

Harry J. Sandschulte, of this city, was united in marriage Thursday at
Onawa, to Miss Mary Grayce McGarr, of Onawa. The Onawa Sentinel gives the
following account of the ceremony:
This morning at nine o’clock at St. John’s church took place the marriage of
Miss Mary Grayce McGarr, of this city, and Harry J. Sandschulte, of LeMars,
Rev. Father L. J. Savage officiating, the ceremony being witnessed by a
large number of friends and relatives of the contracting parties.
The brides chosen colors, rose and blue, were displayed in an artistic
arrangement of potted ferns alternating with blue and rose colored candles
on the side altars and the center altar was illumined with white candles and
carnations of a deep pink color were used with very pretty effect.
Rose colored lamp shades diffused a softened brilliance over the setting for
the pretty scene which was completed when at exactly nine o’clock the
wedding party appeared before the altar.
Previous to the ceremony Mrs. A. L. Samson sang Cadman’s “At Dawning” and
during the reading of the service she sang, “Ava Maria.” Lohengrin’s
wedding chorus was played by Miss Margaret Murphy as the bridal party
The bride wore a gown of French blue Georgette and her bridesmaid, who was
Miss Mildred Ryan, of Sioux City, wore a rose colored crepe, carrying out
the color idea of rose and blue. The brides bouquet was of sweetheart roses
and valley lilies and Miss Ryan wore a corsage of mixed flowers.
Mr. Sandschulte was accompanied by his brother, L. C. Sandschulte, as best
Following the ceremony a wedding breakfast was served at Hotel Monona to the
bridal party and close relatives and immediately afterward Mr. and Mrs.
Sandschulte departed for Chicago and other points on a wedding trip. They
will be at home after March 30 at LeMars where Mr. Sandschulte is engaged
in business. The many Onawa friends will follow them with kindest interest
and well wishes, as the bride who is the only daughter of Mrs. Elizabeth
McGarr, has lived here since her childhood and is known for her vivacious
spirit and lovable qualities of girlhood, which qualify for happiness. The
Sentinel extends its sincerest congratulations.
Those from out of town who attended the wedding were the groom’s mother,
Mrs. Mary Sandschulte, his sisters, Misses Elizabeth and Anne Sandschulte,
and his brother and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Sandschulte, all of Rock Valley,
Iowa; Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Perasso and Miss Betty Overing, of Sioux City; Miss
Dorothy Gibson, of Whiting; and Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Thurston, of Omaha.
