Pieper of the town of Loyal, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony at the Loyal German Lutheran Church at two o’clock Wednesday afternoon, May 9, 1917. Rev. Kemena, the pastor, officiated. The bride was charmingly gowned in a dress of white satin with trimmings of lace, ribbon and rhinestones. The beauty of the costume was further enhanced by a bridal wreath and veil, as well as by her bouquet of bridal roses. Her sister Miss Lorna acted as her maid and she too appeared in beautiful white. Their close friend Mr. Nathan Desslock acted as best man. Miss Clara Kehrberg played the wedding march, as well as the prelude to the ceremony.
