A PRETTY WEDDING
ALBERT BOHLKEN AND JESSELYN COLSON MARRIED
WEDDED ON CHRISTMAS DAY
The marriage of Miss Jesselyn Colson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Colson of Clinton, Mo., took place Christmas day at the St. Paul M.E. parsonage, Rev. Steinbrenner officiating. They were accompanied by the bride’s brother, Lawrence S. Colson, of Mason county and Miss Lydia C. Bohlken, sister of the groom.
Following the ceremony, they returned to the groom’s home where a sumptuous three-course dinner was served. The home was beautifully decorated in Christmas colors of red and green.
Miss Colson has spent the past two years teaching in this vicinity and has made several friends.
Mr. Bohlken has lived all his life in this county except one year spent on the Mexican Border and another in France and has won for himself a host of friends.
The bride wore a traveling suit of navy blue serge with accessories to match.
After a short wedding trip to different points in Minnesota, they will be at home to their friends in LeMars.
