  • Notes 
    • Wilhelm - Baufelt

      A pretty autumn wedding was solemnized in the New Hamburg Baptist Church on Saturday, September 26, at 2 o'clock, when Mary Gertrude Baufelt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Baufelt of Hespeler was united in marriage to Mr. Wellington Wilhelm of Wilmot, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Christian Wilhelm. Rev. E. G. Dale performed the ceremony before a bank of ferns and fall flowers, the guests' seats being designated by a bow of ribbon holding fern and asters.

      The bride, who was very charming in a gown of white sild and chalance lace wore the customary bridal veil and carried a shower bouquet of butterfly roses and fern. She was attended by the groom's sister, Miss Alice, gowned in yellow georgette with lace, who carried American Beauty roses. Little Margaret Wilhelm of Whitby, niece of the groom, was very sweet in Nile green georgette with cape to match. She carried a basket of asters and baby breath. The groom's attendant was Mr. William Baufelt of Guelph, brother of the bride. Mrs. D. Becker rendered Lohengrin's wedding march and Miss Louise Boettger sang very sweetly "Thanks Be To God", while the register was being signed. The ushers were the groom's brothers, Messrs. Solomon and Herman Wilhelm.

      After the ceremony about fifty invited guests were entertained at Wilby farm. During the reception M. L.G. Pequegnat rendered a solo and later proposed a toast to the bride to which the groom responded. The tables were prettily decorated with pink and white, a large wedding bell hanging over the tables.

      Mr. and Mrs. Wilhelm left by motor for the thousand Islands and points east and on their return will reside on the groom's farm in Wilby. The bride motored in navy blue dress with coat and hat to match. The many gifts testified to the great esteem in which both bride and groom are held.
