Last Tuesday morning, October 30, 1917. the wedding bells of the Church of the Immaculate Conception of Clarion rang merrily for the celebration of nuptials of Miss Catherine Veronica Hartle and Mr. Leopold George Selker, two of Clarion's most highly esteemed young people. Rev. Fr. George Wemkler was the officiating Priest and Herman's Orchestra, with Jos Augustine Guth presiding at the organ, furnished the music.
The wedding party entered the church to the strains of the beautiful wedding march. The bride wore a rich and beautiful gown of ivory duchess satin with silver lace trimmings and wore a veil with cap effect caught with pearls, and carried Sweetheart roses showered with lilies of the valley. Miss Frances Selker, sister of the groom, attended the bride. She wore a pink silk net over pink taffeta, trimmed with silver, with large black velvet picture hat faced with pink satin and trimmed with silver, and carried Ophelia roses. The groom was attended by Mr. George B. Hartle, brother of the bride.
The wedding breakfast was served at the home of the bride, the color scheme being pink and white, beautifully carried out in decoration and appointments. Following this Mr. and Mrs. Sleker left at 11:25 for Niagara Falls and a lake trip after which they will be at home to their friends at East Main Street.
The groom is a rising young business man of fine ability and splendid character, a son of Mrs. J.W. Selker, and is the head of the Selker Cigar Co. The bride is an accomplished and charming young lady and filled the important position of stenographer at the Berney-Bond glass plant for some time.
Among the out of town guests were: Misses Emma and Lizzie Hartle, of Pittsburgh; Mrs. Ellen Ditz of DuBois.
A fine miscellaneous shower was given in honor of the bride by Mrs. Geo. A. Ditz on last Thursday evening.
The cordial and hearty good wishes of all are given the bride and groom.
There are currently no photographs in the collection from the wedding of Leopold George Selker and Katherine Veronica Hartle.
