Wednesday evening at six o’clock Charles Turner and Fanny Rieke were united in marriage by Rev. L. F. Smith at the home of the bride’s parents, using the ring ceremony. They were unattended.

The bride wore a beautiful gown of chiffon over lace over white messallne and carried a large bouquet of bride’s roses. The groom wore the conventional black. The wedding march was rendered by Mrs. George Ruch. The room was tastefully decorated in yellow and white.

After the ceremony a four course luncheon was served to 50 guests by Joy and Cora, sisters of the bride, and Leah, Mae and Lois, cousins of the bride.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Rieke and is one of Van Horne’s most popular and most highly esteemed young ladies. She was born in this community and here grew to womanhood. The groom is a native of England and has been a resident of Van Horne for 7 years and in that time has gained a host of friends.

Mr. and Mrs. Turner are now on their honeymoon in Barrington, Ills. They will be at home on the Chas. Rieke farm near Blairstown after March 15.

Out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. George Humphrey of Vinton and Mr. and Mrs. Art Goodell. The host of friends of the young couple wish them a long and happy married life.
