Adler-Krauss Wedding

20 Jan 1946, New Orleans Times-Picayune, Sec 3, p. 3



In a beautiful setting of Easter lilies Miss Fannie Krauss became the bride of Mr. Walter P. Adler Tuesday evening at an 8 o’clock ceremony, performed by Rabbi Emil W. Leipziger of Touro Synagogue at the residence of the bride’s cousin, Mr. Albert Mayer, and Mrs. Mayer, in Vendome Place. Miss Krauss is a daughter of Mrs. Cecile Trautman Krauss of New Orleans and Mr. Marcel Krauss of Miami, Fla. Mr. Adler is a son of Mrs. Coleman E. Adler and the late Mr. Adler of this city. 


The bride descended the stairway in the entrance hall with her father, who gave her in marriage. The hall was filled with clusters of Easter lilies, and on the newel post of the stairway was a cathedral candelabra holding lighted white tapers and to which were attached a cluster of Easter lilies. They entered the living room where the ceremony was performed before an improvised altar in front of an arched window. The altar was decorated on either end with gold candelabra holding lighted white tapers and looped together with a garland of Easter lilies, and at each end of the alter were tall cathedral candelabra holding white tapers and to which were attached clusters of Easter lilies. Candlelight was the only illumination used during the ceremony. Elsewhere about the room were arrangements of Easter lilies.


The bridge wore a lovely gown of old-ivory-colored faille made with a very bouffant skirt trimmed down the back with a panel of old family lace. Her veil of tulle was held to her hair by a small wreath of orange blossoms, and she carried a white Bible belonging to the bridegroom’s mother, and from which fell a spray of tiny white hyacinths. 


The bride’s sister, Mrs. S. Paul Weiss, Jr., was her matron of honor and only attendant. Her dress was of gold-colored velvet, bodice made with a sweetheart neckline and three-quarter-length shirred sleeves, and the skirt fashioned very bouffant. She carried a garland of mimosa. Mr. Adler had his brother, Mr. Milton Adler, as his best man.


Following the ceremony there was an informal reception at which Mrs. Krauss, mother of the bride, who wore a gown of black crepe, was assisted in receiving by Mrs. Adler, mother of the bridegroom, also in black crepe, and by Mrs. Albert Mayer, whose dress was a chic model combined with black velvet and café au lait faille. 


In the dining room the bride’s table was decorated with a wedding cake surrounded by orange blossoms. At either end of the buffet were gold candelabra joined together with a garland of Easter lilies.


Mr. Adler and his bride left later in the evening on a honeymoon to Miami, Fla., Cuba and Nassau. They will return here to reside. The bride chose for traveling suit of brown wool which she wore with a brown hat and accessories of brown and a corsage bouquet of green orchids.


Although a small event the wedding was among interesting nuptials of the winter season here. Among out-of-town guests here for the event were the bride’s aunt, Mrs. J.G. Swartschild of Chicago, and the latter’s son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Theo Samuels of St. Louis, Mo.
