A beautiful home wedding occurred last night at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Judson Lateer, at Germantown, when their daughter[,] Miss Annie E. Lateer, and Mr. Ira Herman were united in marriage by Rev. A.W. Buck, pastor of the Evangelical church. The event was one for which a great preparation was made.

The house was beautifully decorated for the occasion with many choice flowers and evergreens.

At exactly 7:30 Mrs. Buck commenced playing the wedding march, and while its melodious strains floated on the air, the bride, with her company of attendants met the groom under an evergreen arch which had been constructed for the purpose, where the solemn words were pronounced and the promises sealed by the presentation of a ring.

At the conclusion of the ceremony the party proceeded to the dining room where they partook of a sumptuous repast.

Mr. and Mrs. Herman will leave tonight for New York and points in New Jersey, for a wedding trip, after which they will return and commence housekeeping at 135 Jersey avenue.

Among the out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wright, who officiated as best man and bridesmaid respectfully, Raymond Wright, and Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Aumick.
