Thanksgiving day at the home of August Blecker, Sr., in Stanton township, was a day of much pleasure. It was the birthday and also the wedding day of his youngest daughter, Miss Kate Blecker, who was united in marriage with Mr. Geo. F. Spies, Rev. Belzer, of Stanton, officiating.
Punctually at half past two the strains of Mendelssohn's Wedding March, played by Geo. M. Smith, announced the approach of the bridal party.
The bride was beautifully attired in a pale cream silk dress tastefully and daintily trimmed with pure white satin and wore a magnificent bridal veil and wreath. Miss Carrie Spies and Miss Flossie Smith, niece and cousin of the groom, attended as flower girls and were prettily attired in blue silk dresses trimmed with white lace and presented a very pretty picture in conjunction with the bride. After the ceremony a sumptuous repast was served to the many guests and congratulations showed the newly married pair. The presents were numerous and costly.
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Blecker, Will Blecker, Mr. and Mrs. Julius Schimer, and Chas. Schimer, all of Ponca, Neb. , relatives of the bride, were present at the wedding and also Geo. M. Smith and family of LeMars.
The young couple will go to housekeeping on a farm in Stanton where the groom is building a fine new house. The young people are members of prominent Plymouth county families and enjoy an extensive acquaintance and are very popular on account of their pleasant qualities.
