Ferns and baskets of gladioli Madonna lilies and garden flowers decorated the Christian church Thursday, June 26, 1941, for the wedding at high noon of Miss Evelyn Parker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F.R. Parker of Moorhead, Iowa, and Darrel M. Hanna, son of Chas. Hanna of Jefferson, Iowa. Rev. I. G. Randels officiated, using the double ring ceremony. Miss Marion Hughes, violinist of Sioux City, accompanied on the piano by Miss Kathryn Hill of Hamburg, Iowa, played “O Promise Me” and “I Love You Truly.” “Ave Maria” was played during the service.
The bridal party entered to the strains of Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus.” Mrs. Raymond Bloedel of Malvern, Iowa, matron of honor was attired in a street length dress of dusty rose crepe, with blue accessories. Her corsage was of sweet peas.
The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a white street length dress with a square yoke of embroidered silk. A single strand of pearls was her only jewels. Her large picture hat was of white straw draped with a brim veil. She carried a shower bouquet of white roses, sweet peas, locust blooms and baby breath.
The groomsman was Bernard Caine, of Sioux City, a young attorney friend of the groom. Both groom and groomsman wore suits of sand tan.
The bride’s mother was attired in a brocaded rose sheer with white accessories; Mrs. Chas. Hanna being attired in black silk net. Both ladies wore corsages of gardenias.
The bridal party and invited guests were served a three-course breakfast by one of the church circles in a room decorated with the Bride’s colors: orchid, peach and Nile green. Large baskets of flowers added to the beauty of the room. The table was decorated with a large cake topped with a miniature Bride and Groom, white tapers and vases of sweet peas and baby breath. The nut cups carried out the bride’s color scheme. The bride’s cake was cut by the bride and the groom’s cake by the groom, each guest, each guest receiving a piece to take home.
A reception was given for the wedding party, relatives and friends at the bride’s home from two to five in the afternoon. The many beautiful wedding gifts were on display and guests signed the Guest Book.
