Married in Sioux Falls.
A wedding of much interest to Sioux Falls people this week was that of Miss Mary Katherine Byrne, of this place and William Augustine Kennedy of Armstrong, Iowa. Promptly at nine o’clock wedding bells chimed and the bridal party entered St. Michael’s Pro-Cathedral and slowly marched up the aisle to the strains of Mendolssohn’s wedding march played by Walter Howe Jones. First came the maid of honor, Miss Rose Byrne sister of the bride and the groom. Following them was the bridesmaid Miss Myrtle Collins with the best man, Ray Flemming of Ethan, South Dakota. Lastly came the lovely bride on the arm of her father, who gave her away at the altar. Rev. Nolan read the impressive ceremony which united the lives of these two estimable young people in the presence of a large number of friends. A coincidence of the wedding was that the bride’s parents were married at the same altar railing as was their daughter and on the same day of the week.
Immediately after the ceremony, the bridal party went to the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Byrne, 635 North Dakota avenue, where a three course wedding breakfast was served to the relatives and immediate friends, among them being Revs. Nolan and Salmon. The Byrne home was prettily decorated with cut flowers, all accessories to match.
Out of town guests were Miss Anna Kennedy, of Algona, Iowa, Miss Katherine Flemming, of Cresco, Ia., and Ray and Flossie Flemming, of Ethan, S. D. — Sioux Falls Daily Press.
