A very pretty wedding was consummated at the Miller ranch northwest of Bison on last Saturday evening, the principals being two of Perkins county's best known and popular young people, Earl Miller and Miss Ada Lincoln. A small party of close friends was present at nine o'clock when the curtain across the corner of the large living room was drawn disclosing the bride and bridegroom standing in a white bower and immediately beneath a large white wedding bell. The ring ceremony was then solemnized by Judge F. Drewry after which a very substantial wedding supper was served and a short musical program given.
Our reporter, being a man, is unable to describe the bride's dress except to say that it was very becoming and exactly what a bride’s dress should be. The bridegroom was a revelation to his friends in his black wedding suit and he passed the ring with perfect composure in the circle symbolic of eternal love, without beginning or end. The young couple have a large circle of friends who fervently bespeak for them a long life of happiness and prosperity.—The Bison (S. D.) Courier, December 4th.
