WEDDING IS CELEBRATED
Popular Young Remsen People United in Marriage
Wednesday morning at 7:30 o'clock Miss Regina C. Dalhoff and Mr. Henry
C. Ortmann, both well known and popular Remsen young people, were united
in the holy bonds of matrimony at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Remsen
in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends. The nuptial
mass was celebrated by Rev. J. J. Dalhoff, of Sanborn, Ia., a cousin of
The couple were attended by Miss Dorothy Dalhoff, twin sister of the
bride, and Walter Ortmann, a brother of the groom.
The bride appeared charming in a gown of swan's crepe and Spanish lace.
Her embroidered veil was daintily caught up with sweet peas and she
carried a shower of bouquet of bridal roses. Her principal ornament was
a beautiful strand of pearls, which was a gift from the groom. The
bridesmaid was gowned in pondreau blue crepe with Venetian lace, and
carried an arm bouquet of cream colored roses. Both the groom and best
man wore blue suits.
After the mass the bridal party and nearest relatives repaired to the
bride's home, where the usual wedding festivities were enjoyed. The
bridal couple and attendants enjoyed breakfast, and at noon an elaborate
dinner was served, the table honors being performed by the Misses
Christina Hatz, Lucy Ohlendorf, Mayme Offermann and Hildegard Offermann,
intimate friends of the bride.
The happy couple departed in the afternoon on an extended honeymoon
trip, having planned to go to St. Louis and other southern points of
interest, including a visit to the groom's old home at Creve Coeur, Mo.
Upon their return they will go to farming on the Anton Wintz home place,
six miles northwest of Remsen, which the groom and his brother have been
occupying for several years.
