YOUNG BANKER WINS A BRIDE
Business Man Of Marcus Is Wedded to Popular Remsen Girl
A pretty wedding was solemnized Tuesday morning at 8 o’clock in St. Mary’s church in Remsen when Miss Marie Krogman, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Krogman, Jr., was united in marriage to Elmer J. Knebel, of Marcus.
The ceremony and nuptial mass was ready by Rev. H. J. Schleier, pastor, and was witnessed by relatives and a large number of friends.
The bridal party entered the church to the strains of the Lohengrin wedding chorus rendered by Mrs. Sylvester Fideler, organist.
The bride was beautifully gowned in bridal satin. Her veil was of silk and lace, trimmed in rhinestones, pearls and orange blossoms in Spanish effect. Her only ornament was a strand of pearls and crystals. She carried a shower bouquet of bridal roses, achillea and smilax. She was attended by her sister, Helen Krogman, who wore a blue printed chiffon gown with hat and accessories to match and wore a corsage of Ophelia roses.
During the ceremony Miss Dorothy Nothem sang “Ave Maria.”
The groom was attended by his brother, Paul, of Iowa City.
After the ceremony relatives and friends numbering sixty, repaired to the home of the bride’s parents. Tables were attractively decorated in the bride’s colors, blue and white, and a three course dinner was served by her friends, Virginia Treinen, Opal Duster, Mrs. Elmer Douvia, and Mildred Hansen, a cousin of the bride. A handsomely decorated wedding cake formed a center piece.
The bride was the recipient of many beautiful gifts.
Late in the evening Mr. and Mrs. Knebel departed on a wedding trip west, stopping at the Black Hills, Yellowstone Park and Buffalo, Wyoming, where they will be guests of his brother, Dr. and Mrs. W.J. Knebel and family.
The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Krogman, Jr. She was graduated from St. Mary’s high school in Remsen and taught school the past year. She is a young lady of pleasing personality and has made many friends in this community. The groom is the son of Mrs. Flora Knebel, of Iowa City.

Droll and daughter, Luella, and niece, Eleanor Pelzer, his uncle, John Rummelhart, all of Iowa City; his sister, Mrs. I. H. Maxwell and son Donald and daughter, Helen, of Delmont, S.D.
