Gabriel, Emma (Marriage - 16 JUN 1925)

A very pretty wedding was solemnized at the Catholic Church Tuesday morning, June 16, 1925, Rev. Lachnitt officiating, when Miss Emma Gabriel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Gabriel, became the bride of John Stoiber, Jr., of Dorchester, Clark County, Wis. The church was very prettily decorated for the occasion in blue and white, the Sodality colors, of which the bride is a member. Rose Gabriel, sister of the bride, acted as bridesmaid and Neva Reeves, friend of the bride, was maid of honor. The groom was attended by Nick Gabriel, brother of the bride, as best man, accompanied by Raymond Nachtwey of Dorchester, friend of the groom. Marie Dessl, niece of the groom, acted as flower girl, and carried a basket of snapdragons and ferns. She wore a dres of orchid crepe de chine.

The bride was beautiful dressed in white silk georgette crepe, draped over with white satin and carried a shower bouquet of white roses and lilies of the valley. The bridesmaid wore a dress of pale green satin faced canton crepe and a corsage bouquet of tea roses and sweet peas. The maid of honor was attired in a dress of peach satin faced canton crepe and also wore a corsage bouquet of tea roses and sweet peas.

Immediately after the marriage ceremony, the bridal party repaired to the home of the bride's parents, where a wedding reception was given. Relatives and nearest friends were present. Mr. J. E. Lyons was chosen as honored guest and escorted the bridal party to church, back home, and, in the evening, to Dorchester, where a free wedding dance was given.

The bride is a daughter of a prominent family living east of Colby, Wis. and has been employed at Willmette, Ill., the past six years. She is also one of the popular girls of her community and has many friends who wish her much happiness in her married life.

The groom is a resident of the Dorchester community and is known as one of the most prominent and prosperous farmers of that place.
