Wedding At King Home

The home of Mr. and Mrs. Gus Kimm Jr. was the scene of a very pretty wedding on Tuesday at 4 p.m., April 19, 1927, when their daughter, Miss Bernice Kimm was united in marriage to Mr. Rex Mayhew. It was also the 22nd anniversary of the bride's parents.

The bridal party entered to the strains of "Lohengrim's Wedding March," played by Mrs. Clifford Stewart, sister of the groom. The bride was attended by Miss Edith Mayhew, sister of the groom, and Mr. Elmer Elbers, a cousin of the bride, acted as best man.

The ceremony took place under an arch of roses in the presence of about forty guests. The ceremony was performed by Rev. R. Herman, who used the double ring ceremony. The bride's gown was a rose georgette and she wore a corsage bouquet of pink roses and sweet peas and a band of rhinestones. Her hose and pumps were of parchment. She also carried her mother's wedding handkerchief. Miss Edith Mayhew wore a dress of blue crepe.

After congratulations a three course wedding supper was served by Misses Evelyn Johnston and ??? Robertson. The table was centered with a huge wedding cake decorated in pink and white with a small bride and groom on the top.

The bride is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gus Kimm and is a young lady with many personal charms. She was born and raised in this vicinity and attended school here, graduating in the class of 1926. She is also an accomplished musician and has many friends in this community.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Mayhew and was born and raised in this vicinity, moving to Marion six years ago. He attended school here later graduating from the Marion high school with the class of 1921. He later attended the Cedar Rapids Business College and Barber school, having located at Mechanicsville. Rex is a young man of splendid character and represents one of the best families of this community.

After a short honeymoon they will make their home in Mechanicsville.
