JEFFERSON COUNTY, KANSAS
At 7:30 p. m. Easter day there occurred a very pretty wedding, at which about 40 relatives and friends and relatives (Sic.) gathered in the Schuster home 3 miles south of Ozawkie, to witness the ceremony that united for life Miss Ollie Schuster and Mr. Gail H. Stark. Preceding the ceremony Mrs. Stutely Stark sang "A Perfect Day," the bride and groom, accompanied by the maids and ring bearer took their places under a neatly decorated arch and a simple but most impressive double ring ceremony was used. Immediately after the ceremony the friends found their way to the dining room where an excellent two course dinner was awaiting the, served by some caterers from Oskaloosa.
The bride was very becomingly attired in a gown of white silk crepe, trimmed in shadow lace, having the Eton jacket effect, skirt draped with shadow lace, a veil with a crown of white rose buds.
The maids, Misses Rachel Schuster and Olecta Stark, wore gowns of white crepe trimmed with light blue satin. Lucile Fickinger carried the rigs (Sic.) in a basket of sweet peas. Mrs. Mae Brammell Schuster played the wedding march, also the accompaniment to the solo. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Edw. W. Fickinger.
The bride is a daughter of Mrs. Mollie Schuster, and is a young woman of culture, who has been successful as a teacher and enjoys the respect of the people who know her.
The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Stark, a talented young man, ranking high as a teacher, his work being very acceptable.
The young people on their return from a trip to Topeka and Kansas City, will be at home to friends on the Stark farm.
