The rooms were arranged with streamers of gold and white ribbon, and the table was decorated with yellow flowers. A feature was the two-tiered wedding cake. Mr. F. W. Alke, an old friend of the family, presided at the breakfast. Among the guests were Mrs A. Ott (sister of the bride, and chief bridesmaid) and Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Erbacher (brother and sister-in-law of the bridegroom, and groomsman and second bridesmaid at the wedding 50 years ago).
