PRETTY WEDDING HELD AT REMSEN
Sylvester Kobberman and Margaret Bunkers Are Married
St. Mary’s church in Remsen was the scene of a pretty wedding Wednesday
morning when Miss Margaret Bunkers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jos. F.
Bunkers, was united in marriage with Sylvester Kobberman, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Frank Dobberman, all of Remsen.
The date of the wedding was the Silver anniversary of the bride’s parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Bunkers, and the double event was duly celebrated.
The ceremony at 8 o’clock was performed by Rev. H. J. Schleler.
The bridal couple was attended by Miss Armelia Bunkers, a sister of the
bride, and Theodore Kobbermann, a brother of the groom. The bride appeared
in a gown of white satin with lace jacket and wore a long veil held in cap
effect with orange blossoms and pearls. Her other accessories harmonized
beautifully with the bridal gown, and as her principal ornament she wore a
string of pearls which was a gift by the groom. The bride carried a bouquet
of calla lilies. The maid of honor wore maize taffeta, white hat and shoes,
and accessories to match, and carried a bouquet of yellow tea roses and
orchid sweet peas.
Following the ceremony, the bridal party went to the home of the bride’s
grandmother, Mrs. Margaret Bunkers, a mile east of town, where breakfast was
served, and later the reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents.
The rooms were elaborately decorated in the bride’s colors, white and
yellow, and silver was used in the decorative scheme in recognition of the
silver wedding anniversary of the bride’s parents. A magnificent wedding
cake, prepared by the bride’s aunt, Mrs. Jas. Wagner and a cousin, Mrs.
Cordula Bueltel, graced the table as a center piece. Relatives were
entertained at dinner at noon and throughout the rest of the day.
Table waiters were Misses Victoria Bunkers and Malaine Vaske, cousins of the
bride, and the kitchen honors were supervised by Mrs. Jas. Wagner and Miss
In the evening the bridal couple entertained their friends at a dancing
party in the Falke Hall, and hundreds were in attendance.
The young couple will make their home in Remsen where the bridegroom is
employed with an auto salvage company.
