Miss Helen Bohling and Paul Gobber

are United in Marriage Last Thursday 

Will Make Their  Home on Farm near Elk Creek



A very pretty wedding was performed at Hickory Grove church

last Thursday afternoon, May 24, at 2:30 o'clock when

Miss Helen W. Bohling, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bohling, Jr. and Paul H. Gobber, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Dick Gobber,

were united in holy matrimony. The ceremony was performed by

Reverend Theo. Streng in the presence of many relatives and friends.


The bride looked charming in a gown of white satin, trimmed with

Chantilly lace, brilliants and pearls fashioned with a tight bodice and

fluffy skirt. Her lovely white veil was caught about her head in

coronet style, with a wreath of orange blossoms. She carried a

shower bouquet of pink rosebuds, carnations, and sweet peas,

knotted with white satin ribbon. Her attendants were Miss Esther

Bohling, her sister, and Miss Della Gobber, sister of the groom.

They were attired in frocks of deep pink georgette with lace flounces.

The flower girls were Elsie Bohling, sister of the bride, and

Iona Oestmann, niece of the groom  They were dressed in dainty

rose crepe designs and carried baskets of pink and white carnations

and ferns. The groom wore a conventional suit of dark blue, and was

attended by his nephew, Leonard Lunzmann, and

Alvin Oestmann, cousin of the bride.


Following the ceremony, an elaborate wedding dinner was served

to about one hundred and fifty guests of the bride's parents.

The home was beautifully decorated with pink and white roses, and

presented a pleasing appearance.  The happy couple were the

recipients of many beautiful gifts, as tokens of the esteem in

which they are held by their many friends.


The bride was born and grew to womanhood near Auburn, where

she has always been very popular and highly esteemed. She is

a graduate of the Johnson high school with the class of 1927.


The bridegroom was born and reared near Diller, and is an

industrious and successful young farmer. He and his bride will

reside on a farm six miles east of Elk Creek, owned by the

groom's father. The best wishes of their many friends are

extended to them for a long and very happy wedded life.
