Forest Grove, Washington County, Oregon, Thursday, September 8 ,1904.
Balsiger— Moore
At noon on Wednesday, Sept. 6,
there occured, at Greenville, a very
delightful wedding in which one of
the contracting parties was Miss Hattie
May Moore, the beautiful daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Moore, who are
among the oldest and most respected
citizens of Washington County, Mr.
Moore having lived here for more
than fifty years. The groom, Mr.
Arnold W. Balsiger, is a rising young
merchant of the new town of White
Salmon, in Washington. The wedding
was a private one with only the family
of the bride, and a few invited guests
present. At high noon the contract­
ing parties appeared in the parlor of
ihe bride’s parents, which had been
appropriately decorated with ferns and
native flowers, and the vows were
given and exchanged in the beautiful
ritual of the Congregational Church,
Supt. Cephas F. Clapp officiating,
using the wedding ring.
After the customary congratulations
were over a unique wedding breakfast
was served and the bride and groom
took the afternoon train for Portland and
Puget Sound, where they will spend the
honey-moon visiting the many places
of interest there, and then return to
their home in White Salmon. The
best wishes of a host of friends go
with them.
