Miss Bernice Grosboll aud Lieutenant Horace Campbell Plight Vows Tuesday Morning
A beautiful spring wedding, charming in every detail, was solemnized in the Christian church at 10 o'clock Tuesday morning, April 23, 1918, when Miss Bernice Rachel Grosboll was united in marriage to Lieutenant Horace Leslie Campbell.
The service was said by Rev. S. E. Fisher in the presence of a large company of relatives and friends, the beautiful and impressive ring ceremony of the Christian church being used. The decorations were very effective and provided an exquisite setting for the bridal party. Palms, ferns and baskets of spring flowers banked the altar and choir loft, the whole being festooned. with yellow tulle.
An organ recital by Elmo Dillon of Bloomington preceded the ceremony. Miss Laura Buckley sang "I Love You Truly'' and the wedding procession entered the east door of the edifice to the strains of Lohengrin's ''Bridal Chorus'' played by Mr. Dillon. The ushers, Messrs. Paul, Cyrus and Harry Grosboll of this city and Edgar Boynton of Pleasant Plains came first, followed by the little flower boy and girl, Kenneth and Gretchen Grosboll, who were dressed in white and carried baskets of Pansies and marguerites. The maid of honor, Miss Gladys Grosboll, gowned in yellow voile and carrying an arm bouquet of Ward roses preceded the bride, who came in alone. Last in the bridal
party were the parents of the bride, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Grosboll.
The bride was attired in a gown of white brocaded satin and Georgette crepe, with white hat and shoes. She carried a shower bouquet of Easter lillies and Bride roses. She was met at the altar by the groom, who with his best man Struble Batterton, preceded by the minister had entered from the south door. The groom wore his uniform, that of a lieutenant in the aviation corps.
While the vows were being said Mr. Dillon softly played ''Cavalleria Rusticana" on the great organ; Mendelssohn's ''Wedding March'' was used as the recessional.
Immediately after the ceremony the wedding party went to the Grosboll home, north of town; where a reception was held. After felicitations and the extending of congratulations an elegantly appointed four course breakfast was served to twenty-two guests. The decorative scheme of yellow and white was further carried out in the home, the bride's table being a thing of beauty in itself with its centerpiece of sweet alyssum and yellow daffodils. Flag place cards lent an added military air to the occasion and pieces of the bride's cake in a dainty white and yellow basket were given as favors.
The bride in this interesting wedding is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Grosboll, a vivacious young woman of personality and charm. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Campbell, a young man of sterling quality. He now holds a lieutenant's commission and is stationed in the aviation corps at Love field, Dallas, Texas.
Mr. and Mrs. Campbell left Tuesday evening by auto for Springfield and from there will go on a short honeymoon trip before returning to Love field, Dallas,. Texas.
