Dated February 19, 1914
The marriage of Herman Reemts and Miss Minnie Witt was solemnized Wednesday afternoon, February 18, 1914, at 3 o’clock, at the home of her parents, northeast of this city. The impressive ring ceremony was used by Rev. F. A. Meske, of the Akron German Lutheran church, in the presence of relatives and a few neighbors. The wedding march was played by Miss Lillian Anderson and the bridal party took places in the parlor under a pretty pink and white arch. The bridesmaids were: Miss Lorena Witt, sister, of the bride; and Miss Flora Reemts, sister of the groom. The best men were Henry Witt, brother of the bride and Frank Reemts, brother of the groom. The bride was very becomingly attired in a gown of white shadow lace over white messaline, wore a wreath of orange blossoms and veil and carried a bouquet of bride’s roses. Her maids were attired in pink.
A sumptuous wedding dinner was served at 4:30 o’clock. The dining room decorations were in pink and white, and ferns and pink and white carnations were used very effectively as a center piece in the table decorations.
The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Witt, well-known residents of Portland township, and is a young woman of charming personality and useful accomplishments. The groom is a son of Mrs. F. Reemts, of this city. He is a hustling farmer and a worthy young man in every respect. Both are deservedly popular in a wide circle of friends, all of whom extend congratulations and wish them a long, happy and successful married life.
They will soon begin housekeeping on the groom’s fine farm, five miles northwest of here, in Union county, S.D., where the groom has lived practically all of his life.
