Wedded Amid Pleasant Surroundings
A profesion of white dresses, Chinese lanterns hanging from beautiful trees embellishing a well kept lawn, and a neighborly good fellowship amoung the guests characterized a very pretty wedding ceremony at the handsome country residence of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Boerschel last Thursday evening when there daughter, Martha, was united in marriage to Mr. Jerome Walsh of Clarksville.
The ceremony took place at 8:15 on the lawn and was witnessed by about eighty guests. To the stately strains of the wedding march played by Mrs. W.F. Paul, the bridal couple marched from indoors and took their places before Rev. Edwin Ewell, the officiating clergyman. Miss Boerschel was accompanied by Miss Lorraine French, of Clarksville, while Hugo Boerschel, brother of the bride, acted as best man. Immediately after the ceremony the couple were showered with congratulations and best wishes by the large company, who were then invited to the dining room, where a sumptuous banquet was served. The remainder of the long evening was passed in social converse, the occassion being enlivened by plenty of music rendered by the I.C. Orchestra.
These two young people start out in their wedded lives with the most favorable prospects for a long and happy future. The bride is one of Butler township's fairest daughters, cultured, refined, of a lovable disposition and in every other way capable of making happy the one she has sworn to love and cherish. The young husband possesses all the sterling qualities that go to make perfect manhood and will prove a worthy life partner of the one he has chosen.
Mr. and Mrs. Walsh will be at home after July 1 in Clarksville, where Mr. W. has a position as carrier in one of the rural delivery routes out of that town.
