A pretty wedding took place Monday morning at seven o’clock at St. Michael’s Catholic church when Mary T. Erue was united in marriage to Walter Thomas Dullard. Rev. Father Thomas Dullard of Rock Rapids, an uncle of the groom, performed the ceremony before a large crowd of relatives and friends. The priest was served by Loyola O’Brien and Harold Van Allen, cousins of the bride. The bride looked charming in a gown of white georgette, with a veil in Lucille style. She wore shoulder gloves and white slippers. Her bouquet was a shower of bride’s roses and baby’s breath. Her only ornament was a string of pearls, the gift of the groom. Her bridesmaid was Miss Cecelia Dullard, the sister of the groom. The bridesmaid’s frock was orchid georgette with a hat of the same color and she also wore silver slippers. Her bouquet was snapdragons and ferns.
The groom was attended by his cousin, Kenneth Baldwin, and both wore suits of blue. A wedding breakfast was served at the home of the bride’s parents to the immediate families. The color scheme of silver and orchid was carried out in the three-course breakfast. A huge bouquet of roses was the centerpiece. Tiny boxes tied with silver ribbons and filled with the bride’s cake were served. The breakfast was served by Mrs. Seth B. Cairy, Mrs. Leo Kollasch and Mrs. Nellie Van Allen, three cousins of the bride. The young couple left during the day for a motor trip to the Black Hills and Yellowstone National Park. The bride’s traveling suit was a delph blue ensemble with hat and shoes to match.
The bride is the only child of Mr. and Mrs. John Erue. She was reared in Whittemore and was graduated from St. Michael’s school. She taught in the schools of the county and for the past five years has had supervision of the grammar room in the Whittemore public school. She is a very talented young lady and won everyone she met by her sweet and sunny disposition.
The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Dullard of West Union. He is a worthy young man and as he takes his bride to their new home in West Union, they are followed by the best wishes of the entire community.
The out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. John Dullard, West Union and Father Thomas Dullard of Rock Rapids.
