Became a Clergyman’s Bride.
Last evening at the First Lutheran church the marriage of Miss Julia Louisa Brorby, daughter of Mrs. Brorby, of West Decorah, and Rev. Edward M. Stensrud, was soleminized{sic}, Rev. H. G. Stub officiating. The bride was attired in a grown{sic} of while brocaded silk, and was attended by, her sister, Miss Josephine Broby{sic}, as maid of honor, and and{sic} Misses Carrie Hoffass, Julia Moen and Julia Hoffass. The groom was attended by Mr. Arvick, a fromer{sic} classmate at Luther College. Messrs. Sivert Brorby, Rev. Doving, Levi Fossum, G. Grundeson and J. Hopperstad were ushers. Four little flower girls led the bridal party as it approached the altar to the strains of the wedding march, played by Mr. Haldor Hanson. Following these were the brides maids, the maid of honor, and the bride leaning upon the arm of her oldest brother, Mr. Paul Brorby, of New Hampton. The choirs of both Lutheran churches were present and rendered musical selections.
At the close of the ceremony the bridal party were driven to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Larsen, where a large reception was held.
Rev. Stensrud is not unknown in Decorah, having graduated at Luther College. Last week he was ordained into the ministry of the Lutheran church and he takes his bride to California, where he received a call to minister to a congregation. Miss Brorby has grown to womanhood in Decorah, is a young lady of many graces, right worthy of the esteem which many friends hold for her.
