Van Horne Girl Is Married Wednesday

Anna Brehm is United in Marriage to Roy Husted of Newhall Wednesday.

Anna Brehm of Van Horne and Roy Husted of Newhall were united in the bonds of holy matrimony by Rev, H. C. Reikowsky at the German Lutheran church Wednesday afternoon at 3 o’clock in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends. They were attended by a Theodore Geiken and Frieda Brehm, sister of the bride.

The bridal party entered the church while Bertha Anderson played Lohengrin’s Wedding March and the ceremony was performed in English. The text of the sermon was taken from Joshua i:9.

The bride was beautifully gowned in white satin messaline with silk embroidered lace and beaded trimmings and wore a veil. She carried a bouquet of roses and lillies-of-the-valley bound with tulle. The bridesmaid wore white chiffon over net. The groom and best man wore blue serge.

After the ceremony, a wedding dinner was served to 125 guests at the home of the bride’s parents by Louise Brehm, sister of the bride, Alma Schlotfelt, Emma Heppe, Katherine, Martha and Anna Bierschenk and Katie Wieditz, cousins of the bride and Rose and Emma Weise. The house was decorated in red and white and red hearts and the guests were seated at two large tables in the living and dining rooms.

A lap supper was served at midnight.

Out of town guests were John Brehm of Milwaukee. Lew Schlotfelt and family of Mt. Auburn, and Mr. and Mrs. J. Bachman and children, Robert and Hildegarde of Cedar Rapids.

The bride is a daugnter of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Brehm living a mile and a half north of town and is a most estimable young lady who is loved and respected by all who know her. Her friends are counted by the number of her acquaintances. The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Husted of Newhall and is well known and liked in that vicinity and around Van Horne.

The happy young couple will go to housekeeping on a farm near Kinsley, Kansas in the near future. Their many friends and acquaintances unite in wishing them many years of married happiness.
