Alm, Alvina S. (19 JUN 1918)


One of the prettiest weddings of the season occurred on the 19th of June, at high noon in the Deronda Lutheran church when Miss Alvina Sophia, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed. Alm, became the bride of Mr. Raleigh H. Welsh of Yates, Mont. Maurice Alm of the aviation corps of the army who is stationed at St. Paul acted as best man and Miss Maybell Sistad as bridesmaid. The other attendants were Edward Larson of Minneapolis and Miss Gena Alm, sister of the bride. Alice Christianson and Alice Johnson, little cousins of the bride acted as ring bearers and flower girls respectively. Rev. S. Romsdahl was the officiating pastor.

The bride and groom entered the church to the strains of Lohengrin's Wedding march which was played by Miss Allie M. Gilbert of Casselton, North Dakota, a cousin of the bride.

The bride was beautifully gowned in white georgette crepe and carried a shower bouquet of orchids and bridal roses. The bride’s attendants were tastily gowned in pink and carried bouquets of pink roses and sweet decorated with pink peonies and ferns.

After the ceremony the guests assembled at the Alm home where congratulations were extended to the happy couple and where they partook of a most bountiful dinner served by Miss Sena Torgerson and Miss Elsie Paterson.

The out of town guests were Mrs. Sam Johnson and children of Minneapolis: Dr. Lloyd I. Gilbert of Minneapolis: Mrs. Nannie C. Gilbert of Casselton, N.D.: and Mr. and Mrs. John Sifert and children of Farmington, Wis.

The bride grew to womanhood in this community and is honored and respected by all that knew her. The groom is a prosperous farmer of Yates, Mont., and has made many friends during his short stay here. The bride’s going away suit was of sand colored gabardine with accessories to match. Mr. and Mrs. Welsh will be at home to their friends after July 15th at Yates, Mont.

Mr. Raleigh Welsh is known to many here, he is a son of Mr. Albert Welsh, was born in Loyal and lived here until 16 years of age, for the past 12 years he has lived at Yates, Mont.-Gates Mont., Paper The Tribune joins in extending congratulations and best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Welsh.
