The ceremony took place at the residence of the groom in Denison and was attended by nearly sixty guests including the intimate friends and relatives and the employees of the J. B. Romans firm and others in Denison.
None but a small circle of friends had known of the approaching nuptials and the event came as a total surprise to our people. The rooms of Mr. Romans handsome residence were beautifully decorated with plants and flowers and it was in the sitting room thus embellished that the simple but solemn ceremony was performed. The ceremony was delayed somewhat by the fact that for some reason the license had been forgotten and a rush search had to be made for County Clerk Frank Faul to procure the important document. The incident only served, however, to increase the good nature of all concerned and Mr. and Mrs. Romans drove from the house after the ceremony admist a shower of rice and old shoes and congratulations.
They took the morning train on the Northwestern for Chicago, where they will spend a few days before returning to Denison. They will be at home to their friends after January 20th.
Mr. Romans is well known in this community. He is a prosperous business and a man of large affairs. His energy in whatever field he may enter has made him prominent in social, business, political and church circles. We can sincerely congratulate him upon having secured the lady of his choice.
She is a woman of many charms both of mind and character. She has been prominent in good works, is a brilliant conversationalist and possessed of excellent judgment. Last year she was Department President of the Woman's Relief Corps of Iowa and she is prominent in the Rebekah Lodge. We believe that Mrs. Romans will prove a most pleasant and valuable addition to the social life of our city and we can most heartily commend her to the good graces of Denison people.
