Miss Otelia LaBudde of Rhine Married To G. T. Lorfeld of Plymouth


At The Home Of The Bride's Parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. A. LaBudde - The Rev. Mr. Fischer Officiated - Many Relatives Of The Contracting Parties Present - Start On Trip

On Tuesday evening at eight o'clock Miss Otelia, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. A. LaBudde of Rhine, was united in marriage to Mr. G. T. Lorfeld, son of Mrs. W. Lorfeld of this city. The ceremony was performed at the home of the bride's parents, the Rev. Mr. Fischer of Russell speaking the words which sealed the union. The ceremony was witnessed by relatives and a few intimate young lady friends of the bride.

The bridal party stood under an arch in the center of which was a bell made of evergreen. Miss Athilda Lorfeld acted as bridesmaid and Robert C. Bade as groomsman. The bride was gowned in a dress of cream Lansdown and carried roses, while the bridesmaid wore light blue silk and carried carnations. At the close of the ceremony, the happy couple received the congratulations of the guests.

The cheerful home was made beautiful by tasteful decorations. The parlors were trimmed with wedding smilax, ferns and white and pink carnations, and the tables with smilax and white roses, while there was a white carnation at each plate.

Following the congratulations the company sat down to a supper both tempting and bountiful. At the table with the bride and groom were the bridesmaid and groomsman, the father and mother of the bride, mother of the groom; and Rev. Fischer. During the supper Mr. Bade was called on for remarks and he responded in a neat address which tended to onliven (sic) the company. Miss Martha Gaffron recited a brief selection. The following young lady friends of the bride waited on the tables: Misses Nora Schram, Sophie Strassburger, Emilie Sebald, Anna Kohl and Laura Schwalenberg.

At a little after twelve, Mr. and Mrs. Lorfeld were taken in a hack to Plymouth, but not before they were "riced". They took the two-o'clock south-bound train for an extended wedding trip in the South, to be absent two weeks. They will reside in a neatly furnished home on Main street in this city.

Mr. Lorfeld holds the position of bookkeeper for Davis Bros., cheese dealers. He has the confidence of his employer and is respected in the community. He was graduated from the Plymouth High school in the class of 1900 and subsequently took a course at a business college. He is a young man of excellent character and is deserving of a pleasant home which his choice of a life's partner assures him.

The bride is a very worldly young lady, attractive in person and lovable in disposition. She possesses qualities of mind and heart which will make her an excellent companion, and she has the training to make a home pleasant. The Review congratulates both of the young people, and wishes them a full measure of happiness.

They were kindly remembered by their friends with many beautiful and desirable presents.

Mr. and Mrs. LaBudde presented each of the young ladies who waited at the tables with a souvenir spoon of Plymouth.
