Joe Brorby Weds - Manager of Lineville Creamery Married Well Known Centerville Girl
Mr. J. E. Brorby, local Creamery man and Miss Florence Marticia Bradley were married at Centerville last Thursday evening. The wedding was in the Presbyterian Church of that city, Rev. Matt R. Sawyer, officiating. The following Lineville people received invitations to the wedding: Mr. and Mrs. P. M. Molleston and son, Reid, Mrs. C. W. Cole and son, Paul, Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Craney, Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Molleston, Mr. and Mrs. Guy Painter, Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Peterson, Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Varney and Messrs. Dr. H. S. Engle and Frank May. Close to 300 invited guests were in attendance, coming from various parts of the country. The Tribune joins the many friends and acquaintances of the happy couple in wishing them a happy wedded life and welcome them to Lineville.
The following was taken from the June 12 issue of the Centerville Daily Iowegian:
Wedded in the month of June, with nature showing her best face and with many friends assembled to grace the happy occasion with their presence and to join in hoping for a happy future for those who were taking the marriage vows, Miss Florence Marticia Bradley and Mr. Joseph Erwin Brorby were married at the Presbyterian church Thursday evening, June 11 at 8:30 o'clock. The ring ceremony was performed by Dr. Mott R. Sawyers, pastor of the church. The bride approached the altar on the arm of her father, Mr. J. A. Bradley, who gave the bride away, passing through a ribboned aisle from the main church entrance and was awaited at the altar by the bridegroom who with the best man, Mr. Bert Fenton, had taken his place where the other aisle meets the altar with the ushers who were Messrs. Paul and Howard Stanley, Reuben Swanson and Elton Hendershott. The matron of honor, Mrs. Frances Young of Goplin, Mo., sister of the bride; the maid of honor, Miss Olive Bradley, also sister of the bride, and the bridesmaids, Misses Mildred Barnett, Marjorie Estes and Martha Tillmont, had preceded the bride in taking their places beside the altar. The scene during the ceremony thus made a very pretty one, the alter being artistically and profusely decorated in a bower of pink roses and smilax and the approach to the altar thru which the bride passed having its decorations of smilax entwined with white ribbon.
The bride wore white chiffon beaded in pearl and crystal, with cap of pearls and orange blossoms and a veil of tulle. She carried a shower bouquet of white roses and lilies of the valley. The matrons of honor wore blue chiffon and the maid of honor orchid, both having wide bandeaus of silver studded with crystal beads and rhinestones and carrying arm bouquets of pink roses. The bridesmaids wore yellow, pink and green chiffon respectively, with head bands of silver, and carried old fashioned bouquets of sweet peas and roses. Mrs. Bradley, mother of the bride, wore a black beaded jet lace dress and wore sweet peas and roses.
The music for the occasion was beautifully rendered by Mrs. Edith Packard Davis at the pipe organ, who gave a recital as the guests assembled. Miss Maurine Thompson sang "Because" just preceding the entrance of the wedding party. The processional was the Lohengrin wedding march. "Annie Laurie" was played softly during the ceremony and the Mendelssohn march was the recessional.
A reception followed at the Bradley home on N. 10th Street, where about sixty were assembled. There the same decorative scheme was carried out, with pink roses being used effectively about the home. The bride's table had silver vases with pink rose buds and was lighted with pink candles, with decorations of smilax, the large white wedding cake being a noticeable feature of this table.
In throwing the bride's bouquet Miss Mildred Barnett proved to be the fortunate one to catch it.
Out of town guests were Mrs. Frances Young of Joplin, Mo., sister of the bride, Miss Virginia Young of Coffeyville, Kansas, and Miss Jean Weymouth of Kansas City. Some Lineville friends of the bridegroom were also guests.
The couple succeeded, much to the consternation of those who were prepared to see them off, in outwitting their friends and made their escape for their wedding trip without being detected or revealing their destination. After their return they will begin housekeeping at Lineville.
The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Bradley and has made Centerville her home except for the time she has been away in school and engaged in travel. She attended St. Katherine's academy at Davenport and is a graduate of Ward-Belmont, Nashville. Tenn. and is a capable and accomplished young woman with a large circle of friends to wish her the utmost of happiness. Mr. Brorby is a young man who is entering upon a promising business career. He is engaged in the creamery business at Lineville where they are to make their home. --- Daily Iowegian.
