A pretty church wedding took place in St. Paulís German church at Whittemore, Iowa, on January 16th at 10:30 a.m., when Miss Emma A. Helmke, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Helmke, became the bride of Albert H. Binneboese, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Binneboese, of Hinton. The bridal couple were attended by Miss Minnie Binneboese, a sister of the groom, and Miss Elsie Helmke, a cousin of the bride, who acted as bridesmaids, and Fred Helmke, a brother of the bride, and Harry Helmke, a cousin of the bride, as groomsmen. The bridal gown was of crepe de chine blue, made in entraine. The bridal veil was held in place by a spray of white roses, and the brideís bouquet was of carnations. The bridesmaids were attired in a pretty costume of white brocaded messaline silk. After the ceremony the bridal party repaired to the home of the brideís parents on Broadway where the home was prettily decorated in blue and white.
