Last evening at seven o’clock at the home of the bride’s parents, 309 east Main street, Miss May Frances Gove, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Gove, and Dr. A. C. Woodward, were united in marriage by Rev. M. Willett, D. D., pastor of the Congregational church. The bride was becomingly attired in a gown of white dotted Swiss with lace insertion, and the groom was dressed in conventional black. They were attended by Misses Marjory Schulze and Louise Thomas as flower girls, and Fay Norton as ring bearer. The bride was given away by her brother, Chas. R. Gove. During the ceremony Mr. Albert Schall played the wedding march.
The house was beautifully decorated, the parlor containing a handsome bank of ferns and a horseshoe of roses, under which the ceremony was performed: while the colors in the dining room were pink and white. Immediately following the ceremony the wedding supper was served, and at nine o’clock Dr. and Mrs. Woodward departed for Omaha, where they will spend their honeymoon.
This marriage is another event that commands the hearty approval of all who are acquainted with the parties. It seems superfluous to wish them the completest joy and happiness, since it is by fitness a union that is certain to be followed by as much of these blessings as fall to the average human lot. The bride is an Iowa girl with a lovable disposition, with all the graces that are needed to make home bright and attractive. For years she has been one of the efficient teachers in our public school, possessing the ardent effection of all her pupils. Dr. W. has been a resident of the city but a few years, and in that time has won high esteem from acquaintances he has formed, has secured a successful practice, and good repute as a professional man.
