LeMars Sentinel, Friday, November 30, 1917, Page 1, Column 1:
Thursday, November 29, was the scene of a pretty home wedding when Amy Lucille, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Darville, of Fredonia township, was united in marriage to Mr. Gerben Keizer. The marriage ceremony was witnessed by sixty guests, relatives and old friends of the family.
Promptly at high noon the bridal couple descended the stairs to the strains of the wedding march, rendered by Miss Irene Cook and Miss Lila Darville. Rev. Bertie Watson, pastor of the M. E. church at Seney, officiated. Immediately after the ceremony the guests repaired to the dining room where a delicious dinner was served in courses by the Misses Lila Darville and Irene Cook. The dining room was tastefully decorated in pink and white, the bride's chosen colors, and a lovely bouquet of roses adorned the center of each table.
The bride was becomingly attired in an ivory white crepe de chine dress with a dew drop net overdrape and carried a bouquet of bridal roses. The bride's travelling suit was of midnight blue with hat and accessories to match.
The bride and groom left on the evening train for a two weeks trip to points in the eastern part of the state. The bride is a graduate of the LeMars high school, class of 1915, and has been a sucessful teacher for the past two and one-half years. The groom is a very prosperous young farmer and well liked by all. Upon their return the young couple will be at home to their friends on the farm where the groom has resided for the past three years.
