A pretty wedding was solemnized at the manse of the First Presbyterian Church, of Sioux Falls, S.D. on Tuesday, December 5, 1933, at high noon, when Miss Bessie J. Murphey became the bride of Dick A. Hoogestraat, both of Lennox, S.D., Rev. Hugh Jones officiating. They were attended by the bride’s sister, Miss Evah Murphey, and the groom’s brother, Earnest Hoogestraat. The bride is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert E. Murphey, former Akron residents, and is a graduate of the Lennox high school Class of ’32. By her pleasing personality she has won many friends during her residence there. The groom, the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Hoogestraat, has lived all his life in the Lennox community and is a progressive and enterprising young man.
The bride was charming in a gown of bluebird blue silk of ankle length, with accessories to match, and carried an arm bouquet of tea roses. Her attendant was dressed in blue silk, to match the bride’s gown.
After the ceremony the young people returned to the Hoogestraat home, where a wedding dinner was served to the members of the families by Mrs. Murphey and Mrs. Hoogestraat. The bride’s colors, blue and white, were carried out in the table decorations. Later in the afternoon the bridal couple left by auto for a two weeks’ visit with friends and relatives in Iowa. On their return they will live with the groom’s parents until March 1, when they will be at home to their friends on the John Hoogestraat farm, north of Lennox.
