The ceremony which united these two young people in the holy bonds of
matrimony was one of the most solemn and impressive rites ever performed
in this city. Rev. Father Hoffmann, of Ashton, uncle of the groom,
acted as Celebrant in the ceremony and he was assisted in the
solemnization by Rev. Father Bourgmeyer, of Wisconsin, as deacon and
Rev. Father Meis as sub-deacon. The church was beautifully decorated
with flowers, was crowded with friends and spectators at the appointed
time and when the bridal couple was ushered in to the grand music of the
organ in the gallery the scene became one of impressive grandeur and
overpowering holiness. The groom was attended by his brother, Mr. John
Lax, and Mr. M. Heurtz, and the bride, attired in the conventional
bride's dress of white silk, by Miss Hoffman, of Remsen, and Miss Celia
Merkle, of Luverne.
A bountiful supper was served in the evening from 5 until 9 p.m. at the
residence of Mr. John Lax, on Fifth street, and over two hundred friends
called to tender congratulations and express their wishes for the future
happiness of the young couple. After the reception, the guests were led
to a hall on Sixth street where dancing and merry-making was kept up
until the approach of dawn warned the participants to retire. The music
for the occasion was furnished by Berg's orchestra.
A splendid array of presents testify to the good wishes of friends and
the young couple will start housekeeping in the house of the bride's
mother at the corner of Third and Fulton streets with everything
necessary to complete a luxurious home.
The choir and organist have the thanks of the priests conducting the
ceremony for the excellent music rendered.
