Wessington Springs Republican--At the commodious home of Mr. and Mrs. George Easton in Media township, Jerauld county, S. D. on December 31, 1919, at high noon occurred the marriage of Blanche C. Easton, of Wessington Springs, S. D., and George T. (actually E.) Hodgson, of LeMars, Ia.
They were attended by Robert Hodgson, a brother of the groom, and Esther Easton, a sister of the bride. Promptly to the strains of the wedding march played by Miss Gladys Brodkorb the bridal party took their places under the arch which had been erected in one corner of the room and Dr. E. W. Lanham, pastor of the Congregational church, using the beautiful ring ceremony in the presence of about thirty-five relatives and friends pronounced them man and wife. "O Promise Me," was sung by Miss Hazel Sorenson.
The bride's gown was white georgette crepe trimmed with white satin and beads and she carried a bridal bouquet.
The bridesmaid work pink georgette crepe and carried pink carnations.
The arch was one of the most artistic from which were festooned streamers of the wedding colors and from which were suspended delicate wedding bells, the whole covered with green smilax and made the corner a bower of beauty.
