Wedding is In Garden
Dorothy Longsdorff, S. A. I. Alumna, Is Bride of Oscar Nowlin
Dorothy Odessa Longsdorff, prominent member of Sigma Alpha Iota professional music sorority and the music supervisor of Monticello schools since her graduation from Milliken university five years ago, became the bride Saturday of Oscar J. R. Nowlin.

A garden wedding at t the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Longsdorff of near Maroa, was attended by the immediate families and a few friends. No previous announcement had been made publicly by the young couple.

Rev. H. H. Jenner of Niantic Christian church performed the ceremony at 4 p.m., Saturday, and two Sigma Alpha Iota sorority sisters of the bride furnished the wedding music. Alma Webster sang "I Love Thee" by Grieg and "L'Amour, Toujour L'Amour" by Friml after Mrs. Gernon R. Henderson, the former Jane Stewart, had played Kreisler's "Old Refrain" on the piano. Mrs. Henderson played the wedding march from "Lohengrin" by Wagner, and as the ceremony was read she played Schubert's "Ave Maria," changing later to the Mendelssohn wedding recessional.

The wedding party used a garden aisle formed between ribbons on which were clusters of flowers. The bride chose her sorority colors of red and white as a color scheme in the garden, with white gladioli, lilies, roses, and other other roses in red, predominating.

The bride was attended by her sister, Florence Longsdorff, and Ben. R. Shoot of Tuscola was best man.

Mrs. Nowlin wore white mousseline de sole with a ruffle down the front of the long skirt and around the hemline, and a large white hat, and carried a prayerbook with ribbon streamers. She wore orchids. The maid of honor wore pink mousseline de sole, white hat , and gardenias.

Mr. and Mrs. Nowlin left soon after the wedding for California, where Mr. Nowlin plans to enter business as a floriculturist. The bride's going away costume was flowered chiffon with white accessories.

The bride is a graduate of Maroa high school, a 1931 Millikin graduate, and attended Northwestern university. She organized and has been director of the Monticello Mothersingers since she became music supervisor of the public schools there five years ago.

Mr. Nowlin is a son of Mrs. Minnie B. Nowlin of Maroa. He is a graduate of Decatur high school, and is a 1934 graduate of the University of Illinois school of floriculture. He has worked in Chicago and Aurora in recent years, and now plans to go into business on the West Coast.

Out of town guests for the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Cohoon, grandparents of the bride, and Mrs. Grant Ransdel of Willow Hill, Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Wilson and family of Centralia, and Mr. and Mrs. Loy Mitchell of Oblong.5

     Dorothy Longsdorff was referenced in a newspaper article about a photograph of Minnie Nowlin and her grandchildren, infant John Nowlin's mother, published on 24 July 1938.8
