A HOME WEDDING
Miss Katherine Margaret Wilters and Mrs. S.W. Woodall are United in Marriage at the Home of the Bride's Parents
The pleasant home on Eagle street of Mr. and Mrs. John Wilters was the scene of a pretty home wedding Thursday, the occasion being the nuptials of their daughter, Katherine, and William Woodall. Loving hands had lavished decorations on the parlor which was beautified with flowers, palms and potted plants tastefully arranged. Magnificent chrysanthemums and gorgeous roses formed a striking feature of the decorations. In one corner of the parlor a floral arch had been formed in evergreens and flowers and beneath the young people plighted their troth. At the appointed hour, half past three , the relatives and a few intimate friends of the two families assembled in the parlors. The sweet strains of Mendelssohn Wedding March, played by Mrs. Bellaire on the piano, heralded the approach of the wedding party. The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Ella Wilters, who was maid of honor, and Miss Rose Dohring, her bridesmaid. The groom was attended by Mr. Hermann Prust and Mr. Albert Dohring. The party took their stations under the wreathed arch and Rev. Fred Maske, pastor of the Lutheran church at Akron , performed the ceremony which made the youth and maid man and wife.
The bride looked charming in a most becoming gown of cream satin with white silk and lace chiffon, with bridal veil of exquisite and dainty fabric. She carried a lovely bouquet of white bridal roses. Her attendant, Miss Ella Wilters, wore an elegant costume of grey silk with braid trimmings and lace. Miss Dohring was gowned in a lovely creation of tan silk with lace trimming. The bridesmaids both carried lovely bouquets of Marechal Niel roses. The groom and his attendants looked stalwart and handsome in the conventional black.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, the young couple received the cordial congratulations of their friends who wished them much joy, long life and prosperity. Wedding presents were numerous and costly. A supper and reception was tendered the young folks in the evening.
The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Wilters and is a young lady of many accomplishments and adept in the area of housekeeping. She has lived all her life in Plymouth county and has a well deserved popularity among her friends and associates for her sweetness of disposition and amiable qualities.
The groom is the son of Mr. Thos. Woodall residing near Struble, and is an industrious and pleasant young man who will make a good husband to the charming helpmeet he has gained. Mr. Woodall is engaged in the livery business in this city, having recently purchased the Monroe business.
The young people will reside on Fifth street where a cozy cottage has been prepared for their home.
