Cresco Plain Dealer Dec. 1, 1916 P-1 C-3
At three o’clock on Wednesday, Nov. 29th, at the home of Gunder Gunderson Ridgeway, Ia., occurred the marriage of his youngest daughter Mable to Herbert Milbrath, the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Milbrath, of Cresco, Ia. The groom’s cousin, Luverna Bigalk acted as maid of honor while the groom was attended by his brother Harold Milbrath. To the strains of the wedding march played by Miss Lotta Fjelstuhl, the bridal party took their place in the parlor where the ceremony was performed by Rev. Jordahl. The bride was beautifully gowned in light gray messeline trimmed with all over silk georgette crepe and silver trimming. Her costume was completed by a veil of silk bridal illusion arranged in cap fashion, held in place toy a wreath of roses. She carried a shower bouquet of bride’s roses. The groom wore a nice suit of blue serge. At 6 o’clock an elaborate three-course dinner was served to about 80 guests to which all did ample justice. The dining room was beautifully decorated in green and white.
They will be at home on the O. G. Watros farm after March 1st. All left at the wee hours of morning, wishing Mr. and Mrs. Milbrath a long and happy wedded life.
