PRETTY WEDDING NEW YEAR’S EVE
Schubert Parkinson and Ruth E. Wedd Take Vows In Pretty Home Wedding
The home of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Parkinson, 900 Fourth Avenue, S.E., was the scene of a pretty home wedding when their son, Schubert Parkinson, was united in marriage with Miss Ruth E. Wedd, of Longford, Kansas, New Year’s Eve.
The ceremony took place at 6 o’clock in the presence of a few relatives and friends. The date chosen for the happy event was the birthday of the Bride’s mother. Rev. J. S. Deedrick, pastor of the First Evangelical Church in Waterloo, a brother-in-law of the bridegroom, officiated at the double ring ceremony.
Preceding the ceremony, C. B. Parkinson, a brother of the bridegroom, played a cello solo, “Liebestraume” by Liszt, and Helen Parkinson, a little niece, rendered a violin solo, “I Love You Truly,” by Carrie Jacobs Bond. Mrs. C. B. Parkinson, a sister-in-law of the groom, played Mendelssohn’s Wedding March. The bride was given in marriage by her father, William Wedd. The bride appeared charming in her wedding gown of white crepe, accessories and golden sandals. Her wedding veil, of exquisite lace, an heirloom and a dainty lace handkerchief were used for the fifth celebration of weddings in the Parkinson family.
A bounteous wedding dinner was served following the ceremony. Among guests on the occasion were Wm. Wedd, Ralph and Marion Wedd, Mr. and Mrs. Don McKale, daughter, Georgia, of Longford, Kansas; Mrs. Julia Parkinson, of Sioux City, grandmother of the groom; Mrs. R. H. Aurand, Fort Dodge; Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Parkinson, Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Parkinson, Helen and Jane.
The newly wedding pair left on a trip to Fort Dodge, Waterloo and Des Moines.
The young people are well known in LeMars and attended Western Union College and both are musicians of ability and prominence and are members of the National Music Ensemble.
