--------- Olson, Georgia (12 JUL 1917)

This morning at five o'clock a very pretty but quiet wedding took place at the home of Dr. and Mrs. A. L. Ridgman, when their daughter, Mrs. Georgia Olson and Charles E. Briere were united in marriage, Rev. R. J. Locke officiating. The witnesses at the wedding were the bride's parents and Mrs. A. Madsen of Port Edwards. The bride wore a very pretty blue traveling suit. Following the ceremony the newlyweds left for Yellowstone National Park, stopping at Marshfield for breakfast. They are making the trip in the groom's auto, carrying with them a tent, camping kit and everything necessary to make their trip a pleasant one. They intend to camp out most of the time. From Yellowstone National Park they will go to Seattle to visit with Mr. Briere's sister.

They will also tour the coast and into California, returning by way of the southern route. They expect to be gone about six weeks. (Grand Rapids Leader of July 12, 1917)

The bride is well known in Owen, Clark County, Wis., because she was a teacher at one time in our public schools, later becoming the wife of the late Ludwig Olson. The Enterprise joins the many friends of the newly married couple in congratulations and best wishes for their future.
