A very pretty wedding occurred at the St. Peter’s Lutheran church south of town Thanksgiving day at two o’clock in the afternoon when Miss Charlotte Kruger, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Kruger, was united in marriage to Arthur Pfaffenbach, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Pfaffenbach of Watertown, Wis. The groom is a stranger to the writer but has the reputation of being a young man of many good and few bad habits. The bride needs no introduction to Riceville folks, having lived on the farm south of town most of her life and has always been a social leader among the young folks of the community, and we predict for the young couple a happy and prosperous life Mr. Pfaffenbach is a painter and decorator by trade.
The ceremony which united the happy couple was performed by the pastor, Rev. Karl Rudolph. John Pfaffenbach, Jr., a brother of the groom, acted as best man, and Miss Cora Kruger, sister of the bride, the part of bridesmaid, the wedding march being played by Miss Julia Kruger, another sister. The bride was appropriately dressed in blue silk and carried a large bouquet of hot house roses. The groom was attired in blue also. After the ceremony the guests drove to the Kruger home, where they were served with a five o’clock dinner to which all did ample justice.—Riceville Recorder.
