Helen "Babette" Gallaugher|
Popular Young Couple United at Nuptial Mass Today
Miss Barbara, daughter of Mrs. Charles Fitzenreiter, and Mr. Frank V. Gallaugher were united in the holy bonds of matrimony at 9 o'clock this morning, Rev. Father Cramers, rector of the parish, officiating. The church was crowded with relatives and friends to witness the happy culmination of the attachment of the young people for each other and all agreed that it was a lovely wedding.
The big organ pealed forth the melodious strains of the Lohengrin march, as the bridal party advanced slowly up the aisle to join the waiting bridegroom and his best man, Mr. Walter Fitzenreiter, at the altar. Preceded by the ushers, Mr. Lucius Moss and Mr. Eugene Leveque and the bridesmaid, Miss Vivian Moss, the bride entered on the arm of her brother, Mr. Charles Fitzenreiter. The celebration of nuptial high mass was then begun, during which the ceremony was performed; then the register was signed and the wedding party proceeded to the home of the bride's mother where a reception was held for the friends.
The choir, of which both Mr. and Mrs. Gallaugher are members, sang the
"Kyrie," "Sanctus," and "Agnus Dei" from Loesch's beautiful mass. At the offertory, Mrs. McMillan played Baptiste's beautiful
Andante and during the first portion of the ceremony the march from Rienzi.
The bride wore a handsome costume of white batiste, trimmed with valenciennes and baby Irish lace and carried a bouquet of white carnations, lilies of the valley and maidenhair ferns. The bridesmaid's costume and flowers were identical except that she carried pink carnations.
Mrs. Gallaugher is a Lake Charles girl by birth and education, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Fitzenreiter, who were among the old citizens of Lake Charles, and a grand-daughter of Capt. Daniel Goos, a pioneer settler who was here before Lake Charles existed. She is an accomplished, handsome and amiable young lady whose friends are co-extensive with her acquaintances. Mr. Gallaugher, like his bride, is a lifelong resident of Lake Charles, the son of the late Hon. Frank V. Gallaugher, a prominent attorney of the city. He is employed by the public service corporations and is popular in social and military circles. A host of friends extend congratulations and good wishes. Mr. and Mrs. Gallaugher will make their home in the Kreamer cottage on the lake front, which Mr. Gallaugher recently purchased.
