A pretty home wedding took place at six o’clock on Monday evening, January 24, 1916, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Amel Koch, when their daughter, Sadie Margaret, was united in marriage to Carl L, Haakenson.
The bride wore a beautiful white silk crepe de chine gown trimmed with beading and silk shadow lace and wore a beautiful bridal veil and carried a pretty bouquet of white and pink roses.
The groom was attired in dark blue serge and wore a boutenniere of white roses.
As the wedding march, one of Mendelssohn’s selections, was being played by Miss Nettie Koch, sister of the bride, the bridal party entered the parlor where the ceremony was performed by Rev. Svennungsen, of Le Roy, Minn., underneath two white bells and a beautifully decorated arch of pink, white and green foliage. After congratulations, a bounteous supper was served. The table was beautifully decorated with pink and white roses. Only the immediate relatives were present.
The bride is a charming young lady, second eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Amel Koch, and has grown to womanhood here in Winneshiek County, and is greatly esteemed by her large circle of friends.
The groom is the third eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Christ Haakenson and is well worthy of the bride he has won.
The young couple were the recipients of many beautiful and useful gifts. They will reside on the farm of the groom's father, west of Ridgeway. They need no introductions to our community, as they have always lived here. They took their honeymoon trip to St. Paul, Minneapolis, and the Dakotas. After their return, they will be glad to receive their many friends in their new home. Heartiest congratulations and best wishes is the wish of their host of friends and relatives as they go through life's journey.
