SISTERS IN DOUBLE WEDDING
QUARTET TAKE MARRIAGE VOWS AT ST. JOSEPH’S CHURCH
PRINCIPALS ARE WELL KNOWN HERE
Brides are Daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Nothem, Old Settlers of Plymouth County and Grooms are Well Known Young Business Men.
A joyous and happy event was celebrated in the family of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Nothem, residing on Court street, on Tuesday, the occasion being a double wedding when two of their daughters were happily united in marriage with two well known LeMars young men. The principals in the double wedding were Miss Margaret Nothem and Peter Schomer and Miss Celia Nothem and Frank Tincher. The wedding took place at St. Joseph’s church in the presence of many relatives and friends at eight o’clock, Very Reverend Father F. X. Feuerstein officiating. The brides were dressed alike in pretty gowns of pale blue silk with Persian trimmings and carried bouquets of white bridal roses and each wore a rosebud in her hair. Miss Florence Coddington attired in white messaline silk, trimmed with valenciennes lace, acted as bridesmaid. She also carried a bouquet of lovely white roses. Math Kellen was groomsman. The brides and bridegrooms and the attendants marched down the aisle to the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march, forming a pretty picture as they took their places at the altar.
Following the ceremony and congratulations, the wedding party drove to the Nothem residence where a wedding breakfast was served. The home was prettily decorated in the wedding colors, green and white, and with cut flowers, roses, carnations and smilax. In the dining room streamers of green and white were suspended from the chandelier to the corners of the table. At one o’clock a wedding dinner was served to the guests, about forty in number. A magnificent wedding cake banked with white roses and smilax formed the centerpiece and its artistic arrangement was very effective. Dinner was served in four courses, the honors being done by three young ladies dressed in dainty white costumes, Misses Beatrice Youngbluth, Dorothy Tincher and May Nothem. In the afternoon music and other pastimes were enjoyed and a splendid social time was celebrated. The young people received a large number of costly and handsome gifts, tokens of esteem from many friends.
The out of town guests at the ceremony were Mr. Geo. Scott, Vermillion, S.D.; Mrs. Frank Nothem, Brunswick, Neb.; Mr. and Mrs. Frank McConn, Sioux City; Mr. and Mrs. F. Faber, of Remsen.
Mr. and Mrs. Tincher left on the evening train for a honeymoon trip at Omaha, after which they will make their home at Wessington Springs, S.D., where Mr. Tincher will engage in business. They were escorted to the depot by a large number of young people who gave them showers of rice, old shoes and congratulations as the train pulled out of the station.
Mr. and Mrs. Schomer left on the east bound train for a visit at Waterloo and Webster City. They stole a march on their friends who wished to escort them to the depot, being whirled to Remsen in an automobile by a good natured friend, taking the train from that point east. They will make their home in LeMars at 609 Court street and will be home to their friends after September 22.
The brides are well known and popular young women who have made their home in LeMars for some years. Mr. Schomer is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Schomer, old residents of LeMars, and is a carpenter by occupation and will liked in a large circle of friends. Mr. Tincher is a son of Mr. and Mrs. O. R. Tincher, of this city, and was reared and educated in Kingsley, coming to LeMars some years ago when the family moved here. He is a barber by trade and has a reputation as a good one and is a steady young man who will make good.
