A FAIR JUNE BRIDE
Miss Winifred Kennedy, Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. F. Kennedy, is United in Marriage with Clement Klosterman, a Popular Remsen Man.
A pretty June wedding was celebrating on Wednesday morning at ten o’clock at St. Joseph’s church in Lincoln township, when Miss Winifred Kennedy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. F. Kennedy, and Clement Kosterman, son of Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Klosterman/n, were united in marriage in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends. Rev. Father M. Tierney officiated in the celebration of the nuptial mass.
At the hour of the ceremony Miss Edna Sullivan, cousin of the bride, announced the approach of the bridal party by playing Mendelssohn’s wedding march. The bride was attired in a becoming gown of white satin trimmed with pearls and Irish crochet. She wore a bridal veil, which was held in place by a wreath of roses, and carried a shower bouquet of roses and ferns, the only ornament worn being, a diamond necklace, a gift of the groom. The bride was attended by Miss Emma Klosterman, who wore an exquisite gown of white embroidery trimmed with Irish crochet. The groom was attended by Eugene Kennedy, brother of the bride.
After the ceremony at the church, the bridal party drove to the residence of the bride’s parents in Stanton township, where the home was beautifully decorated with the wedding colors, pink and white. A four course dinner was served to about a hundred guests. A reception was held in the evening.
The bride has been one of Plymouth county’s most successful teachers, and has a host of friends she has won by her charming personality and sunny disposition.
The groom is a highly respected young man of good character and disposition and deserves the highest respect in his community.
