LEONARD, George - HAND, Marie


One of the pretty weddings of the season, which combined great interest and prominence as well, was the marriage of Miss Marie Hand to Mr. George Leonard, which took place at St. Mary's Catholic church at Cascade on Wednesday morning, Oct. 20, 1915, at 9:30 o'clock. Rev. Charles Hoog performed the ceremony and sang the nuptial high mass.

Miss Margaret O'Reilly, cousin of the bride was bridesmaid, while Francis Leonard, brother of the groom acted as groomsman. The bride was becomingly attired in a fur-trimmed suit of brown broadcloth with hat to match, and wore a corsage bouquet of cream Kilarney roses, while her attendant was also attired in a suit of brown with hat to match and wore a corsage bouquet of pink Kilarney roses.

A reception was held at the home of the bride's mother, only intimate relatives and friends being present. A delicious wedding dinner was served in course, covers being laid for thirty. The Misses Genevieve Sullivan, Nora and Margaret Fitzpatrick and May Strong, assisted in serving.

The dining room was tastefully decorated for the occasion, the floral decorations being white and yellow. The couple left for a short wedding trip to Chicago, Bloomington and on their return will reside on the groom's farm near Parnell.

The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Bridget Hand of Cascade, and was born and reared in that vicinity. She is a graduate of Waldo High school and is known as one of Sheboygan county's most successful teachers. She will make attractive the home to which she goes, none the less by her pleasing presence, than by her good taste in beautifying it.

The groom is the son of Mrs. Ellen Leonard of Rathbun, and is the possessor of many admirable traits and estimable qualities. The young couple are descendants from very worthy and respectable families and have hosts of friends who extend hearty congratulations. They received many useful and valuable presents.

Those from away who attended the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Donahue and daughter Genevieve of Kaukauna and Margaret O'Reilly of Elkhart Lake.
