A very pretty wedding occurred at the Catholic church on Thanksgiving morning, when Miss Julia Florence McDermott became the wife of Mr. Daniel Ivory. The nuptial ceremony was performed at nine o'clock during a High Mass, Rev. Father Goebel officiating.
The bride wore a beautiful gown of white batiste and lace. The bridesmaid was Miss Mary McDermott, sister of the bride, and she was attired in cream silk mull. The bridegroom and his brother, Mr. Wm. Ivory, of Marshalltown, Iowa, who acted in the capacity of best man, wore the conventional black.
After the ceremony the relatives and immediate friends of the family were entertained at a sumptuous wedding breakfast at the home of the bride, with Mr. and Mrs. Ed Ryan, of this city.
The house was made gay with festoons and floral decorations, the parlor being in pink and white, while the color scheme in the dining room was green and white.
That Miss McDermott is a very estimable young lady, having won many warm friends by her gentle, womanly ways, was attested by the large number of costly wedding gifts she received.
Mr. Ivory is a prosperous young farmer of Strawberry Point, Iowa, where he is held in high esteem by a large circle of friends.
Mr. and Mrs. Ivory left on an afternoon train for Minneapolis. They will visit at various points in Iowa and after December 15th will be at home to their friends at Strawberry Point.- Staples, Minn., World.
