A PRETTY HOME WEDDING
The pleasant home of Mr. and Mrs. L. H. Baldwin in our village was the scene
of one of the season's most pretty weddings on last Saturday, July 2nd,
1910, the room being tastily and neatly decorated with smilax, interspersed
with white and pink carnations. Promptly at 12:00 o'clock, Rev. P. C.
Wright, a brother-in-law of the groom, master of ceremonies, took his place
and Miss Nellie Holland sang an appropriate solo after which she played a
pretty wedding march to the tune of which appeared Master Stuart Wright,
nephew of the groom, acting as flower boy, followed by Mr. L.H. Baldwin who
presented his daughter, Jessie Evelyn, as the bride and she was accompanied
by her cousin, Miss Susie Slyfield of Sheboygan, who was maid of honor. Mr.
Eugene LaVerne McIntyre, the groom, was accompanied by his brother, Frank
McIntyre, as groomsman. The bride carried a bouquet of white roses and the
maid of honor pink roses. The ceremony then conducted by Rev. Wright was
the usual ring token to bind the nuptual tie and closed with prayer after
which was in waiting, a delicious wedding dinner prepared by Mrs. Robinson
of Sheboygan as caterer and assisted by Mrs. J. Oglan, which was served by
Misses Nina Pollard, Lena Keller, Leila Bishop, Nellie Holland and Bessie
Hyatt, acting as servers. A number of gifts of cut glass and silver were
presented to them.
The bride was attired in a beautiful white pointe de lace over white satin,
and the groom in a dark blue serge suit. While all were fully enjoying the
occasion socially, suddenly Rev. P. Swart appeared with his automobile and
the bride and groom stealthily endeavored to disappear but were sent away in
same under heavy shower of rice and taken to Oostburg where they boarded the
train for Milwaukee and left Milwaukee at 7 o'clock for Lac du Flambeau, Wi.
to spend a couple of weeks honeymoon at the lake there before returning to
Milwaukee, their future home. Mr. McIntyre is one of the assistant city
attorneys of Milwaukee, and the bride has spent the past three years as
instructor in the deaf school. They will be at home in that city to their
friends after Sept. 1st at 759 Maryland Ave.
