Hawarden Independent: The marriage of Miss Gertrude Marion Brunskill,
only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Simon Brunskill of this city, to Mr.
Charles Schoeneman, occurred at the spacious home of the bride's parents
last evening at eight o'clock. The ceremony was postponed from noon to
allow all the time possible for the arrival of the guests who had been
delayed by bad roads and washouts. Promptly at eight o'clock Miss Fern
Chittenden struck up the solemn strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march
and they young couple preceded by the ring bearer, little Miss May
Brunskill, and the flower girl, Miss Cora Scott, descended the broad
stairway and took their places beneath a floral bell where Rev.
Chittenden pronounced the solemn words which united their destinies for
life. The groom was supported by his brother, A. C. Schoeneman, while
Miss Mildred Brunskill, of LeMars, was maid of honor. The house was
tastefully decorated with white and yellow and six little maids, Ila
Brusnksill, Edna Gregg, Ella Rummel, Bertha Barber and two little Misses
Schoeneman held the white ribbons which formed the isles down which the
young couple marched. After congratulations the company composed of
relatives and immediate friends of the contracting parties sat down to a
delicious wedding feast deftly served by the Misses Irene Waite, Bessie
Maxwell, and Lottie and Letha West. The bridal colors were white and
yellow. The bride was gowned in spotless white while the bridesmaid
wore white over yellow satin.
