DeBruyn – Steenhoek
Prairie City News – A quiet wedding of interest to a large number of friends was solemnized Wednesday evening, December 24th, at the home of Mrs. John L. DeBruyn when her daughter, Miss Dorothy Caroline became the bride of Mr. Dick Steenhoek. The ceremony was witnessed by the members of the two families in the parlor where the bride and groom stood was an arch artistically decorated in white and green and potted plants; from the center of arch a large white wedding bell trimmed in silver suspended. Promptly at 4:30 p.m. in the strains of the wedding march played by Mrs. George A. Roberts, youngest sister of the bride, the bride and groom descended the stairs and took their places unattended, where Rev. G. L. Fikkema read an impressive ring ceremony.
This young couple have lived around and in Prairie City most of their lives and both are well known here. They left Friday for a short trip to visit relatives and friends and will be at home to their many friends after March 1, 1920, on a farm near Monroe.
