    • WEDDINGS, Gierke-Neuendorff.
      A pretty wedding was solemnised in the Zion Lutheran Church, Minden, on Saturday, September 30. The parties were Miss Ivy Neuendorff, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. Neuendorff, Minden, and Mr. Harold Gierke, third son of Mr. and Mrs. F. Gierke, Prenzlau. Rev. H. E. Temme officiated, and Mr. E. Beduhn presided at the organ.
      The bride, who entered the church on the arm of her father, who gave her away, wore a trained frock of white lace over satin. The bodice featured a heart-shaped neckline and was finished with satin buttons and buckle. The long tulle veil was made with pleated halo and was held in place by a narrow circlet of orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of white woodpulp roses, asters, and azaleas, tied with white streamers. Miss Pearl Neuendorff, cousin of the bride, attended as bridesmaid. She wore a frock of green lace over satin made with a gathered bodice and long full skirt, and finished with small pink and green woodpulp roses. Her elbow-length green tulle veil was worn with a pleated halo, held in place by a trail of pink and green woodpulp roses. She carried a bouquet of pink woodpulp roses, asters, and azaleas, tied with pink streamers. Mr. Con. Gierke was best man. The reception was held at the home of the bridegroom's parents. A beautiful three-tiered wedding cake adorned the bride's table. Rev. H. E. Temme presided, and the usual toasts were honoured. The bride's frock was made by her aunt, Mrs. E. Purcell (Laidley). The bridesmaid's frock, the veils, and the bouquets were the work of the bridesmaid. The wedding cake was made by Mrs. A. Muller. Mr. and Mrs. H. Gierke's home will be at Marburg. [4]
