Dated May 15, 1913
The home of Mr. and Mrs. L. F. Root, of this city, was the scene of a very pretty wedding Wednesday afternoon, May 12, 1913, when their daughter, Miss Anna Faye, was united in marriage to Charles A. Gosting, of Wynot, Nebr. Miss Lucile Stuart sang “I Love But You,” and promptly at five o’clock, to the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march played by Miss Lillian Armstrong, a cousin of the bride, the bride and groom entered the parlor, which was beautifully decorated in the chosen colors, green and white, and took their places under a large bell, where Rev. R. L. Stuart, of the M.E. church, pronounced the sacred words which made them husband and wife. The bride was tastefully attired in a gown of white silk embroidered voile and carried a bouquet of lilies of the valley. Following the ceremony a reception was held and a bounteous dinner was served.
The bride is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Root, old and respected residents of this community, and is a young woman of pleasing personality and many accomplishments. She is very popular in church and social circles, where her presence will be greatly missed.
The groom is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Gosting, of Westfield, and is a young man of industrious habits and sterling character. For several years he was connected with the Hauck general store here and is now in the general merchandise business in Wynot, Nebr., being one of the firm of Gosting & Sonnerman.
Mr. and Mrs. Gosting left on the 7:20 train last evening for a short honeymoon trip, after which they go to Wynot, Nebr., where they will be at home after May 30th.
The uniting of these worthy young people is viewed with sincere gratification by their legion of friends, and to them come heartiest congratulations and wishes for life’s choicest blessings.
The gifts were many and costly, consisting of silverware, cut glass, etc., also a substantial check from the groom’s parents.
The out of town guests present at the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Gosting, parents of the groom; also his sister and brother, Miss Grace and Harry Gosting, of Westfield, Ia.; his sister, Mrs. Paramore, and family of Hawarden, Ia.; his brother, George, of Tripp, S.D.; Mrs. A. Armstrong and daughter, Miss Lillian, of Lake View, Ia., aunt and cousin of the bride.
