Last Wednesday morning at ten o'clock in Denison at the German Lutheran church, a very pretty wedding was solemnized when Miss Emma Christensen, of this place, and Mr. Nick Ohl, of Dunlap, were united in marriage, Rev. Frese, being the officiating clergyman. The bride was attended by Miss Tina Ohl, sister of the groom. Mr. Herbert Christensen, brother of the bride, acted as groomsman. The bride looked very sweet in a beautiful gown of white silk crepe de-chine with silver lace trimming. She wore a bridal veil and wreath and carried a lovely bouquet of roses. The bridesmaid was also charmingly gowned in white. The groom and his attendant wore suits of blue serge.
After the ceremony the bridal party returned to Dow City where an elegant wedding dinner was served at the home of the bride's parents. The newlyweds are numbered among our best young people. The breed is a daughter of Mrs. Fred Christensen and is well liked by all who know here and will make a true helpmate for the husband of her choice. The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Ohl, of Dunlap and is an exemplary young man well worthy of the bride he has chosen. The happy couple will make their home on the old Ohl place near Dunlap. May they have a long, happy and prosperous wedded life.
