From the LeMars Sentinel, Thursday, February 8, 1883 (as labeled on the newspaper...likely an error and should read "February 15, 1883", since the wedding took place on the 13th.), Page 9, Columns 4-5:
ZIMMERMAN-BERNER--On Tuesday, February 13, 1883, at the residence of the brides' parents by the Rev. Piepert (sic--Pippert), of Melbourne, George Zimmerman and Miss Louisa Berner, all of this county.
The interesting ceremony which made Mr. Zimmerman and Miss Berner man and wife took place at 2 o'clock p.m. and was witnessed by some thirty couples of their relatives and friends. After extending congratulations, about 4 o'clock, the entire party sat down to a sumptuous wedding feast, in the spacious and pleasant rooms of Mr. Berner. The merry company remained till late at night and many till next morning. Among those present from LeMars were Con. Haase, Jacob Spies, Miss Dora Steinberg, Miss May Steinberg and Miss Emma Wernli. Numerous and valuable wedding gifts were received, but we failed to receive the list in time for publication. We understand that the newly wedded couple will move to LeMars in the spring.
