Miss Lydia Pech and William Detloff Married on Wednesday Evening

The home of Mrs. Gustave Pech on Clark street was the scene of a pretty home wedding on Wednesday evening when her daughter, Miss Lydia Mae, was united in marriage with Mr. William Detloff. The ceremony was witnessed by the immediate members of each family. The house was extremely pretty in its floral decorations, the decorations consisting of smilax, palms and potted plants.

The ceremony was performed in the large bay window which was a bower of potted plants, plumb blossoms and smilax, at 5 o’clock, by Rev. W. G. Moore, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, the wedding march being played by Miss Carrie Koenig. The bride wore a beautiful white wedding gown and carried a bouquet of white roses.

Immediately after the ceremony, the most happy congratulations were extended to the happy couple by the relatives after which they partook of an elaborate wedding feast which was served as a fitting consummation of the happy event. After the feast a large number of the friends of the young people dropped in to extend their congratulations. The evening at the Pech home was passed in social visiting until a late hour when Mr. and Mrs. Detloff drove to their home about five miles north of town where they will be at home to their many friends.

The young people are numbered among the most prominent families in the county and have lived in this locality for more than fifteen years, growing to manhood and womanhood here. They will go to housekeeping on the fine quarter section farm owned by the groom five miles north of LeMars. They were the recipients of many valuable and pretty presents.
