Herbert Adolph Scheftel was married to Miss Vivian Straus, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Isidor Straus, at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, at Sherry's,
by the Rev. Dr. Schulman.  The ceremony was followed by a large
reception from 5 to 7 o'clock, which was attended by more than three
hundred guests.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a severely
plain white satin Empire gown with yoke and sleeves of point lace, and a
long tulle veil.  Her bouquet was made of gardenias, white orchids, and
lilies-of-the-valley.  She was attended by Miss Rhoda Seligman as maid
of honor.  The latter was attired in a trailing princess robe of pale
blue crêpe de chine, topped by a blue plumed picture hat. She carried a
large muff of mauve orchids. There were also five little flower girls,
nieces of the  bride, in snowy lace trimmed frocks.

Mr. Scheftel's best man was his brother Walter Scheftel.  There were a
dozen ushers.
