The marriage of John W. Aalfs and Miss May L. Halversen was solemnized
at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ingebret Halversen,
northwest of Akron, in Sioux Valley township, Union county, S.D.,
Thursday, October 22, 1914, Rev. R. A. Arlander, of the Big Springs
Baptist church, officiating. Only relatives and a few immediate friends
were present. At 2 p.m. to the time of the grand wedding march played
by Miss Myrtle Jacobs, the young couple, unattended, took their places
beneath a white floral bell in the northwest corner of the parlor, where
the solemn vows were taken. The bride was becomingly attired in white
satin, with chiffon tunic, trimmed in shadow lace, and carried a bouquet
of bride's roses. The wedding colors were white and pink and the color
scheme was prettily carried out in the house and table decorations. At
3 o'clock a sumptuous 5 course dinner was served.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ingebret Halversen, and the
groom is the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Aalfs. Both families are
well known and highly respected in Sioux Valley township, and the young
people who have cast their lot together are worthy and deservedly
popular in a wide circle of acquaintances. They have the
congratulations and choicest wishes of all who know the. They will make
their home on one of the Aalfs farms west of town.
