Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 7, at 2:30 o’clock, at the home of the bride's parents, the German-Lutheran minister, Rev. Pless, united in marriage Miss Nadalia May, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Will Michel, to Mr. Henry H. Aberly of Davis Corners. The bride is a young lady loved and very highly esteemed by all who know her. The groom is one of Davis Corners’ best young men and well worthy of the bride he has won. The ceremony was witnessed by a large circle of relatives and friends numbering between five and six hundred. The presents received were most numerous and beautiful; they also received about $75 in money.
The wedding took place in the parlor bay-window, which was beautifully decorated in ferns and white flowers. The bride and groom stood under a large white bell. The bride wore a beautiful white satin dress trimmed with silver beads and insertion, and a white silk veil which beautifully attired her head, with a wreath of orange blossoms, and carried pink and white roses tied with white ribbon. She was attended by two bridesmaids, Miss Emma Ribbier, of Preston, Minn., and Miss Edith Henke, of Davis Corners, both of whom carried pink and white roses. The groom wore the conventional black. The best men were Laurence Michel, brother of the bride, and John Aberly, cousin of the groom. The groom and best men wore button-hole bouquets of orange blossoms.
After congratulations, Adam Kurn, uncle of the bride, took the bridal party for an auto ride. On their return a most elaborate five o’clock dinner was served and the evening was spent in dancing in a large bowery built for the occasion, after which the crowd went home, all stating that they had had a very enjoyable time, and wishing the bride and groom a long and happy married life.
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Aberly expect to visit among relatives and friends until Oct. 1st, after which time they will be at home to their many friends on the Aberly farm near Davis Corners, Iowa.
