From the Kingsley News-Times:
On Wednesday afternoon, February 28th, at 1 o’clock, a very pretty wedding was solemnized in the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Johnson, six miles north of Kingsley, uniting two very popular young lives, Miss Amy Johnson and Otto C. Gruenenfeldt. The home was tastily decorated for the occasion, the color scheme being entirely of pink and white. Rev. Joseph Steele, of the Congregational church at Kingsley, performed the impressive ceremony.

Promptly at one o’clock to the strains of “O Promise Me,” played by Miss Florence Swanson, the bridal party descended the stair and took their places in the front parlor, where the guests were awaiting their coming. The bride wore a white messaline with silk and lace trimmings and the becoming bridal veil was held in place with a wreath of lilies of the valley. The bridal bouquet was of white carnations and ferns.

After the ceremony and hearty congratulations, the bridal party led the way to the dining room, where a bountiful wedding dinner was served by the Misses Nessie Van Buskirk, Florence Swanson and Ellen Night. Pink carnations and sweet peas formed a very pretty centerpiece and added both color and delightful perfume for the occasion. The table fairly groaned under its load of toothsome viands, such as Mrs. Johnson is capable of preparing, and was thoroughly appreciated by all who sat at the wedding feast.

The popularity of this young couple was manifested by the many tokens of esteem presented them. Cut glass, china, silverware, linen and many other gifts were received by the bride for the new home.

The out of town guests were Mrs. Nelson, Mrs. Crash, and Miss Florence Swanson, of Sioux City; Mr. and Mrs. W. Null, of LeMars; Mrs. Night and Miss Ellen Night, of Farnhamville, Iowa.
