LeMars Sentinel, February 23, 1906
The wedding of Miss Wilhelmina Kohl and George R. Steele was solemnized
at the Kohl home in Union township on Wednesday in the presence of about
fifty guests, relatives and friends of the contracting parties. The
ceremony was performed at high noon, Rev. W. G. Moore of the Presbyterian
church in LeMars officiating. The bride and groom were unattended. Miss
Jessie Steele, a cousin of the groom, played Mendelssohn's wedding march as
the young people took their places in the prettily decorated parlors. The
bride wore a pretty costume of white lansdown and carried a beautiful
bouquet of bridal roses. After congratulations had been showered on the
happy pair an elaborate three course dinner was served and the remainder of
the day and evening was spent in celebrating the affair.
The young people are members of Plymouth county pioneer families and are
both well known and popular with a large circle of friends.
They start out in life with rosy prospects and will go to housekeeping
on the groom's farm in Union township.
