Person, Elvina (26 Jun 1906)

A beautiful church wedding occurred at the Swedish church last Tuesday at 10 o’clock a.m. when Miss Elvina Person was united in marriage to Albert Johnson, both of this place. Rev. C.O. Lundquist pronouncing the sacred words which made them man and wife. Miss Mary Person played a wedding march when the bridal party marched up the aisle to the altar, where the ceremony was performed under an arch of evergreens. The church was tastefully and appropriately decorated for the occasion. The bride was dressed in dotted swiss trimmed with lace insertion and all over lace, wearing white slippers and veil. She carried roses and carnations. The bride was attended by Misses Esther Larsen of St. Paul and Rena and Ida Johnson. The groom wore the convenal black, and was attended Oliver Solberg, Melvin and Sidley Person. After the ceremony the bridal party, together with about 125 relatives and friends, went to the home of the bride, where a reception was held. The wedding cake was brought from Red Wing, Minn., and was cut by the bride. The bride is a very popular young lady, of a lovely disposition, and will no doubt make a good wife. She graduated from the Levis school and attended the Fairchild high school for two years, after which she was the efficient clerk at the Levis store. The groom is a sober and industrious farmer. They will make their home with his parents. They were recipients of many beautiful and useful presents. All join in wishing them the happiest of voyages through life.
