Cresco Plain Dealer June 30, 1916 P-1 C-3
A quiet wedding occurred at St. Wenceslaus church at Spillville, Iowa, at seven o’clock on Monday morning, June 26th, 1916, when Miss Marie Blackburn the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Blackburn, of Cresco, Iowa, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony with James Soukup, the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Soukup, of Ridgeway, Iowa.
The bride was attired in a white gown of china silk and net with silk lace trimming; she also wore a wreath of bride’s roses and carried a white prayer -book and rosary. The groom wore a blue serge suit and had a boquet of roses pinned on his coat. Rev. J. F. Broz performed the ceremony.
After the ceremony the young couple left for the home of the groom’s sister, Mrs. W. Bena, where a bounteous breakfast was served to immediate relatives.
In the afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Soukup left on a honeymoon trip to Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and different points. They will be at home on July 2nd, and start housekeeping on the groom’s farm two miles west of Ridgeway,
We wish Mr. and Mrs. Soukup a very long and happy married life.
