Dated January 10, 1895
LOVE-SWANZEY: -- At the home of the bride's parents, on Court street, at
five o'clock yesterday afternoon, Mr. Bryson Love and Miss Clara Belle
Swanzey, Rev. D.W. Fahs, officiating.
Nearly a hundred invited friends witnessed the ceremony at the residence
of Wm. Swanzey yesterday afternoon which made these two popular young
people one in the bonds of holy matrimony. The house was beautifully
decorated with flowers and plants and at the appointed time the bridal
couple, escorted by the members of the bride's Sunday school class
carrying flowers, took their places within a pretty floral design in the
bow window and the ceremony was quickly concluded by Rev. Mr. Fahs. An
interesting feature in connection with the marriage was the fact that
the bride was attired in the same beautiful gown in which her mother was
married. A delicious wedding supper was served to the attendant guests
and the couple took their departure for Chicago amid the good wishes and
congratulations of all.
The groom, who on January 1, in partnership with Robert Long, purchased
the C.L. Favor grocery store and who had been for several years previous
to that time in the employ of the Plymouth Roller Mills as buyer, has
prospered well and gained many friends by reason of his sterling
integrity. The bride has, since settling in LeMars, endeared herself to
a large circle of friends by her loving nature and many other graces of
mind and character and all are glad to see her happily wedded. A
quantity of useful and beautiful ornamental presents testify to the
esteem in which the young couple are regarded. On their return from the
wedding trip they will take up their residence with the bride's parents.
