In keeping with St. Valentine's Day, hearts were prominent in the decorations. The bride wore sheer white embroidered organdy, with white veil and flowers. Beautiful and useful were the numerous gifts received. Mrs. Lloyd Riley sang "O Promise Me" and "I Love You Truly" before and after the ceremony.
Mr. and Mrs. Riley will be at home to their many friends on the farm five miles from Jewell after March 15th. They left for Chicago on their wedding trip Wednesday evening.
The people of Blairsburg join in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Riley a happy and prosperous life.
