Lee County Weddings

Arthur Schoenholz to Alma Baxter

Wednesday evening, March the eighth, at the home of Mrs. C. K. Baxter, occurred the marriage of her daughter, Alma, to Mr. Arthur Schoenholz. The bride and groom personally received their guests who were the immediate relatives of the family and Mr. and Mrs. Paul Snyder, particular friends of the groom. Miss Howlett presided at the piano and as the clock chimed the hour of eight the bride and groom preceded by the Rev. L. S. Evans took their places beside an improvised bank of ferns and flowers. The beautiful ring ceremony was used which pledged them one to each other, and which by the joining of the right hands and the speaking of the words made the twain one, and they were pronounced husband and wife. The bride looked charmingly in her gown of white voile and lace draperies, while she carried a cluster of rose buds as her bouquet. The groom was modestly dressed in a suit of blue serge. They made a very striking couple as they stood before us. Congratulations were received and all went as merry as a wedding bell. The company was invited to the dining room and the bride seated her guests at small tables seating four. Each table lighted by a candle was decorated with white narcissus and carnations were used as place flowers.

Very dainty refreshments were served. The guests were very pleasantly entertained until the wee small hours of the night and when departing to their several homes each wished Mr. and Mrs. Schoenholz a long life of love and happiness.

The bride and groom grew up in this community and are well and favorably known. Mrs. Schoenholz is the only daughter of Mrs. Baxter and is a young woman of pleasing disposition and has a large circle of friends who wish her the largest possible measure of happiness and prosperity. Mr. Schoenholz is the son of a prosperous farmer and is a young man of steady industrious habits and is held in high esteem by his many friends. After a short wedding trip they will reside on the Alex Fisk farm five miles north of Paw Paw and will be pleased to receive their friends at any time at their home. May joy and prosperity come to them in greatest profusion all along life's pathway.
