FERN CHAPMAN NOW A BRIDE
POPULAR YOUNG WOMAN OF SENEY, IS WEDDED TO ORVILLE COOPER
A pretty home wedding was celebrated on Wednesday, at high noon, at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Elam Chapman, when their daughter, Fern Ruth, was
united in marriage to Mr. Orville Cooper. The home was beautifully
decorated in pink and white, the bride's chosen colors. To the strains
of the Lohengrin wedding chorus, played by Mrs. Earl Chapman, the bridal
couple took their places beneath a pink and white arch, under a large
white wedding bell, where Rev. M.L. Metcalf read the service making them
man and wife.
The bride was becomingly dressed in a coral pink georgette dress and
carried a bouquet of pink and white roses and carnations. The groom
wore a suit of tan mixture. After the ceremony a sumptuous three-course
dinner was served to about forty guests, by four young ladies, Mesdames
Albert Hawkins, J.M. Kunath, Ethel Moir and Ina Lancaster, who were
dressed in the bride's colors, pink and white.
Mrs. D.F. McArthur and Mrs. R.H. Zimmerman assisted the young ladies in
the honors of serving.
Many valuable and beautiful presents were received by the couple.
The bride's going away dress was rose colored silk, with accessories to
match. They left the same evening for different points in Nebraska. On
their return they will reside on the R.A. Hawkins farm, north of Seney.
Those from a distance attending the wedding were: Mr. James Alderson
and daughter, Miss Myrtle, of Elgin, Neb.; Albert Muxlow and Mrs. R.H.
Zimmerman, of LeMars, and Rev. and Mrs. M.L. Metcalf, of Sioux City.
