One of Akron’s very prettiest weddings took place at St. Patrick’s Catholic
church Wednesday morning, October 12, 1910, at 8:30 o’clock, when Miss Grace
O’Rielly and Mrs. Willard F. Keane were united in marriage, Rev. Father D.
K. Hurley officiating. The bride presented a dainty picture in a gown of
white silk chiffon over white net, richly trimmed with pearls and satin, and
a full length veil picturesquely draped with lilies of the valley completed
the costume. The bridal procession was led by two little flower girls,
Carmel Coyle and Ernestine Blackinberg; next the bridesmaids, Miss Dorothy
O’Rielly, of Beresford, and Miss Josephine Ressegieu, of Sioux City, attired
in pale blue silk, with picturesque hats, and carrying pink roses. There
were followed by the maid of honor, Miss Bertie O’Rielly, of Beresford,
S.D., wearing a dainty costume of pale pink silk and a large white hat. She
carried a large bouquet of bride’s roses. Then came the bride, leaning on
the arm of her father, who escorted her to the altar, where she was met by
the groom, who was supported by his brother, Mr. Steve Keane. Both the groom
and the best man wore conventional black.
Lohengrin’s wedding march was played by Miss Gertrude Ressegieu, of Sioux
City, cousin of the bride. During the mass a beautiful solo, “Oh Fair, Oh
Sweet and Holy,” by Cantor, was sung by Mrs. T. L. Burnight Jr, with
accompaniment by Mr. Burnight.
Immediately after the ceremony the bridal party and many relatives and a
very few invited friends repaired to the bride’s home, where a four-course
breakfast was served at 11 o’clock. The home was beautifully decorated in
the wedding colors, pink and white. The floral decorations were
chrysanthemums and roses.
Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Keane left in the afternoon for a tour through the
Rockies and will be at home to their friends in Akron after November 15.
The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. X. O’Rielly, who are numbered
among Akron’s highly esteemed pioneer residents. She has lived here from
infancy and through her winsomeness and virtues holds a firm place in the
regard of many friends. The groom, a son of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Keane, of
this city, came from Sioux City about two years ago and with his brother, S.
E., has successfully engaged in the grocery and fruit business here. He is a
talented and aggressive young business man. A fine home here awaits the
occupancy of the newly married couple, who have the wishes of many friends
for never-ending happiness.
