Erdmann, Esther (Marriage - 24 JUL 1929)

A very pretty wedding was solemnized at the Green Grove Lutheran Parsonage, Rev. M. C. Goetsch officiating, last Wednesday, July 24, 1929, when Miss Esther Erdmann, daughter of Mrs. Maria Erdmann, became the bride of Mr. Arthur Fakes, son of Mrs. Ervin Koerner, formerly Mrs. Selma Fakes. Miss Ida Fakes acted as bridesmaid and the groom was attended by Charles Lapp.

The bride was attired in a beautiful dress of peach colored flat crepe and carried a bouquet of carnations and sweet pears. The bridesmaid wore a dress of cerise flat crepe..

After the marriage ceremony, a reception was given at the home of the bride, the home being nicely decorated in peach and white, flowers and ferns for the occasion. In the evening, a free wedding dance was given at the Oakwood pavilion which was largely attended by relatives and friends.

Both the bride and groom are well known and popular young people, as they both lived in this vicinity since they were little children. They were school pals and both were confirmed in the same class by Rev. M. C. Goetsch. They will make their home on the groom's farm in the town of Green Grove, Clark County, Wis.

About a week before their marriage, a house shower was given in their honor at the home of the bride's sister, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Johnson. They were delighted with the many beautiful and expensive gifts that they received.
