The home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gabel in Johnson township was the scene of a pretty wedding Saturday evening, April 2, when their daughter, Opal, became the bride of Frank Coates of Kansas City, Mo. The ceremony was celebrated at 7:30 under the glow of candlelight and the parlor decorated with beautiful flowers and ferns made an effective setting. The service was conducted by Rev. George Talbott, pastor of the Adaville church, in the presence of relatives and a few friends.
Miss Shirley Rowe, a niece of the bride, played "To a Wild Irish Rose" preceding the ceremony and Clarke Tindall sang "Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms" and "I Love You Truly".
As the bridal pair and their attendants took their places at the floral altar, Miss Rowe played the Lohengrin wedding chorus from Wagner's opera.
The bride looked charming in her wedding gown of white chiffon, ankle length, with finger tip lace veil and carried a bouquet of bridal roses. Her bridesmaid, Miss Eva M. Gabel, wore a pretty dress of pink organdy, cut ankle length. Her bouquet was formed of sweet peas. Kenneth Peters of Sioux City was groomsman.
