PRETTY WEDDING AT SENEY
Miss Vera Hughes and Will Jeffers Are United in Marriage at the Home of the Bride's Parents
A pretty home wedding took place Wednesday (December 29, 1915) at the home of Mr. and Mrs. G. T. Hughes in Seney, when their niece, Vera Alice, was united in marriage to William I. Jeffers, only son of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Jeffers. The ceremony took place at high noon and was witnessed by the immediate relatives, Rev. G. F. Wood, pastor of the Seney M. E. church officiating. Miss Ellen Hughes, of LeMars, a sister of the bride, sang, "I Love You Truly" after which Miss Jessie Reeves played Lohengrin's bridal march. The wedding party entered the parlor unattended. They stood under a beautifully decorated arch of yellow and white while the wedding vows were pronounced. The bride was becomingly attired in white crepe de chine with satin and lace trimmings and white satin slippers and carried a beautiful bouquet of bridal roses.
A four course dinner was served by the Misses Cora and Ella Hughes and Jessie Reeves. The dining room was prettily decorated in the chosen colors, yellow and white. The bride's cake of yellow and white adorned the center of the table.
The young people received many beautiful presents. They will visit a few days at the home of the bride's sister, Mrs. Earl Mohr, at Westfield.
They will make their home on a farm three miles southeast of Merrill. The bride and groom are members of well known families of this vicinity as they were both reared in this community. They have numberless friends and start out in their wedded life with well wishes of a large circle of friends and acquaintances.
W. Jeffers, of Sioux City, and Mr. and Mrs. Earl Mohr, of Westfield were among the guests at the wedding.
