On Wednesday, June 17th, occurred the marriage of Miss Alizanah Bachman to Mr. Clarence E. Ladd at the home of the Dr. and Mrs. E. W. Bachman on north Seventh street.
While Miss Verne Mitchell played Mendelssohn's wedding march the bridal party appeared and took their places in the beautifully decorated parlor. The ring ceremony was used with Rev. Campbell officiating. The bride and room were attended by Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Stockdale. The bride was attired in white messeline silk trimmed with Princess Louise lace and silver tissue and Mrs. Stockdale, the matron of honor, wore white chiffon over white silk. Immediately after the ceremony a three course luncheon was served, after which Mr. and Mrs. Ladd took the evening train for their new home in Des Moines.
Both the bride and groom are well known in Estherville. Miss Bachman is the charming daughter of Dr. and Mrs. E. W. Bachman and as one of our young people has proven herself both attractive and accomplished. She is a graduate of Buena Vista Academy and the Drake Conservatory of Music. Mr. Ladd is one of Estherville's most promising young men. He is a graduate of Shattuck Military School and has had two years of work in Iowa State University. He is now in business in Des Moines.
Only the intimate friends of both families were present. The out-of-town guests were Mr. and Mrs. McFarland of West Bend, and Mr. Ingram of Des Moines. (Estherville Democrat, Estherville, IA, June 24, 1908)

Pleasant Home Wedding
Happy Couple Left on Evening Train for Des Moines – Their Future Home
At three o'clock Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Clarence Ladd, son of Attorney and Mrs. W. A. Ladd and Miss Alizanah Bachman, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. E. W. Bachman, were united in marriage at the Bachman home on North Seventh street, Rev. Edward Campbell of the Presbyterian church officiating.
The ceremony was performed in the presence of immediate relatives and a few most intimate friends. It was a very pleasant home wedding. Mrs. Ruth Stockdale, sister of the bride, was matron of honor and J. E. Stockdale was best man. Miss Vera Mitchell presided at the piano. After the ceremony luncheon was served and at 6:20 the happy couple left on the Rock Island passenger for Des Moines where they will make their home.
The bride is one of Estherville's most talented and refined young ladies. She has been teacher of music in the Estherville high school for the past two years, and conspicuous in social circle of the town. She will undoubtedly make for Mr. Ladd a most valuable helpmeet. The groom is well and favorably known in Estherville, this being his birthplace. He is a young man of exemplary habits, well educated and has an excellent position in the railroad commissioner's office at the state capital.
