After the ceremony a bountiful four course luncheon was served, the color scheme of the luncheon being pink and white.  Many beautiful and useful presents were presented to the bride and groom.  They left on a trip through Minnesota, Dakota and Missouri, taking with them the very best wishes of their friends for a pleasant trip on the sea of life.


The young lady friends of the bride served the luncheon and were Misses Alice Neverman, Fay Marsh, Elsie Snyder, Katherine Austin, Lesa Landgraf and Vivian Ure.


One of the most pleasant of presents was a dining room set presented to them by the "court house bunch."
