Merrill People Married in California.

On Wednesday, February 15, 1922, at Santa Anna, Calif., occurred the beautiful ceremony which united in marriage, Miss Myrtle A. Turton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Turton, 1509 West Fourth street and Milton C. Blecker, a prosperous young farmer of Merrill, Iowa, and a son of Mr. and Mrs. Aug. Blecker of this community.

Fragrant masses of pink sweet peas and a wealth of ferns and greenery, decked the pretty Turton home in the colors which were used once before by the bride on the occasion of her graduation from the Merrill high school.

[two lines of type illegible] ……the young couple entered the room and took their place before the Rev. F. T. Porter, of the First Christ church, and as the music modulated into the melody of “Loves Old Sweet Song,” the wedding vows were taken in a bower of ferns and palms and under s shower of pink and green hearts festooned throughout the greenery.

The bride’s girlish charm was enhanced by her bridal gown of hand embroidered white silk crepe jersey, and her long veil in soft folds from a coronet of orange blossoms.

Immediately after the dinner, the happy couple left by motor for their honeymoon journey back to the pleasant Iowa home which awaits them.

For the trip, the bride wore a handsome tailored suit of midnight blue, and was hatted and gloved to correspond.

Guests at the wedding included Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Turton, Miss Clara Turton and Miss Eva Turton, parents and sisters of the bride: Mr. and Mrs. H. Backberg, Los Angeles; Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Backberg, Huntington Park; Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Turton, Mr. and Mrs. R. P. Allen and family and Rev. and Mrs. F. T. Porter.
