On Wednesday, December 1st , 1915 , at the beautiful country home of Mr. and Mrs. C.W. Cook, occurred the marriage of their oldest daughter, Esther Leone, to Charles Bert Criswell. The wedding took place at seven o'clock . Only the immediate relatives were present. As Miss Jessie Reeves, an aunt of the bride, played the Lohengrin wedding march, the bridal party descended the stairs and took their places in the parlor before the bow window. The ring ceremony was used, Rev. G. F. Wood, pastor of the Seney M.E. church officiating. After congratulations all repaired to the dining room where a sumptuous wedding feast awaited the guests. The dining room decorations were carried out in pink and white.
The bride was beautifully gowned in white silk mulle with rose bud trimmings and white satin slippers and carried a beautiful bouquet of bridal roses.
The bride and groom are well and favorably known as they were both raised in this community. Mr. Criswell is a prosperous young farmer. This worthy couple starts out in married life with a host of friends to wish them a long, happy and successful life. They will visit a few weeks with relatives and friends at Strawberry Point and other places in the eastern part of the state. The bride's traveling suit was of midnight blue poplin with hat and gloves to match.
After March 1st they will be at home to their many friends on the Shearon farm one mile west of LeMars.
