Wedding Is One Of Beauty.

Agnes Constance Baack and Mr. Alfred Josten Are Made One in Pretty Ceremony On Wednesday, December 3, 1919 the home of the bride's parent, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Baack occurred the marriage of their daughter, Agnes Constance, and Mr. Alfred Josten, Rev. C. J. Pritz pastor of the Grace Lutheran Church in the presence of the immediate relatives of the contracting parties officiated.

At the hour of 7 o'clock to the strains of Lohengrins wedding march played by Miss Dorothy Baack, sister of the bride, the bridal couple unattended took their place under a white wedding bell pendant from an arch of white and green.

Immediately after the ceremony was performed, a second ceremony, followed, it being the christening of the seven-weeks-old nephew of the bride, and son of Mr. and Mrs. Chris Baack, of Garner, the bride and groom standing sponsor for the wee one, who was given the name of Gerald Gaylord.

After congratulations a sumptuous wedding dinner was served by Miss Rena Nelson, cousin of the bride and Miss Mary Kirkpatrick.

The decorations in the dinning room were in the bride's colors, pink and white.

The bride never looked lovelier than in her bridal garments of white georgette over satin with white net bridal veil. She carried a bouquet of white carnations. The groom wore the conventional black.

The bride who is the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Baack, was born and reared to young womanhood on the farm two miles south of town. A few years ago she left for Garner where she spent the intervening time and met the young man of her choice.

She is a young lady who gains the love and respect of the people in what ever community she resides and is eminently fitted to make a splendid helpmate for her husband.

The groom is a stranger but in the short time he has spent here he has gained the respect of those with whom he has come in contact.

After a few weeks spent with relatives the happy pair will leave for Garner where they will reside on the farm belonging to MR. Jostenís father, on which the young man has spent his entire life.

The best wishes of the entire community will follow them to their future home.
