The marriage of Miss Antoinette Cook to John Gaden took place at high noon on Wednesday, April 6, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Lang, in Remsen township. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Brauer, of Remsen. As the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march pealed forth, the bride and bridesmaid descended the stairs to the parlor where the groom was waiting. Miss Bessie Scott, a cousin of the bride, played the march. The parlor was beautifully decorated in the colors, green and white. The ceremony was performed under a beautiful floral arch from which a white wedding bell was suspended. The bride was attired in a beautiful gown of white satin, trimmed in hand embroidery and pearl beads. She carried a bouquet of cream bridal roses and lilies of the valley. Her veil was fastened in her hair with cream rosebuds. The bridesmaid, Miss Mabel E. Cook, a sister of the bride, wore a lovely dress of pink chiffon over pink silk. The groom and bestman, Henry Gaden, a brother of the groom, wore black.

After the ceremony, the guests were ushered into the dining room to partake of an elaborate dinner served in six courses. Ellenora Cook, Louise Gaden, Caroline Lang and Elizabeth Lang, who were attired in dainty gowns of white, did the honors of serving. The dining room was decorated in festoons of pink and white crepe paper and small silver bells. The tables were decorated in smilax and pink and white carnations. Ribbons were suspended from the ceiling to the corners of the tables.

The afternoon was spent in social conversation and musical selections by the cousins and friends of the bride. In the evening a large reception was given in the Remsen hall where the young folks enjoyed dancing. The bride’s evening dress was white lace over pale green. Delicious refreshments were served at twelve o’clock, each guest receiving a box of wedding cake.

The accomplished bride has been one of Plymouth county’s best school teachers for the past two years and the groom is a successful young farmer of Remsen township. Mr. and Mrs. Gaden will go to housekeeping on the groom’s father’s farm in Remsen township. Their many friends extend congratulations and best wishes to the young people. They were the recipients of many beautiful and useful presents, among which were cut glass, china, silver, linen and furniture. The bride’s suit was a deep shade of Copenhagen blue with hat and gloves to match.

The out-of-town guests at the wedding were: Mr. and Mrs. John Lang, Alton; Henry Gaden, Ames; Otto Gaden, Allen, Neb.; Will Gaden, Bridgewater, S.D.; Wm. Hanno, Bancroft, Neb.; August Wilken, Crawford, Io.; Miss Caroline Lang, Bryant, S. Dak.; Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Kruse and Ed Kruse, Kingsley.
