On Saturday evening, March 12, at 6 o’clock, a beautiful wedding took place at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Lincoln township when Emma Wildman of Sioux City was united in marriage with Emil Jahn of Kingsley, Iowa, with Rev. R. J. Torgler officiating.

The bride was attended by three close friends, Miss Lydia Lang, maid of honor, Lucile Beck and Edna Kowalke, bridesmaids and the groom by the bride’s brother, Jack Wildman and Albert Kowalke and Ed Kowalke, nephews of the groom.

The bridal party entered the church at the appointed hour to the strains of Lohngrin’s wedding march played on the organ by Miss Agnes Wetrosky and took their places at the altar.

The bride and maid of honor were preceded to the altar by the ring bearer, Joyce Peterson, and two flower carriers, little Jo Ann Kowalke and Jackie Wildman and were met at the altar by the groom and best man. The little girls were daintily dressed in pastel green dresses and the boy in a black velvet suit trimmed in white satin.

The bride was charmingly attired in an ivory satin gown with a beaded yoke surmounted by a bridal veil of exquisite skeen in cap effect circled in rhinestones. She carried a shower bouquet of bride’s roses and sweet peas.

The bridesmaids were attired in the bride’s colors; the maid of honor in a charming pastel green satin gown and the bridesmaids wore dresses alike in the pastel shades of yellow and rose and wore corsage bouquets of tea roses.

Preceding the wedding ceremony a beautiful duet “I Love You Truly” was offered by Walter Heimgartner and Ed Lang. After a short service by Rev. R. J. Torgler, the marriage vows were taken, the double ring ceremony being used.

Following the ceremony and congratulations, the wedding guests repaired to the home of the groom’s sister and brother-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Kowalke, where a sumptuous wedding dinner was served by the groom’s mother, Mrs. Augusta Jahn, to more than one hundred guests.

The house was prettily decorated in the bride’s chosen colors, green, rose, yellow. The centerpiece of the bride’s table being a magnificent bridal cake topped with miniature cupids.

The honors of serving were accorded to six young ladies, friends of the bride, the Misses Alvina Lang, Laura Jahn, Myrna Beck, Marie Krause, Louise Krause, and Alvina Lingren.

The bride and groom are both popular young people of this community and their many friends wish them a long and happy wedded life. They will be at home to their many friends on the groom’s farm near Kingsley.
