      At eight o’clock on Wednesday evening a party consisting of the most intimate friends of the contracting parties assembled at the residence to witness the ceremony and see the couple started out on the voyage of life.

The bridesmaid and groomsman were Miss Kate White, of this city, and Mr. C. T. Smith, of Minneapolis. The bride wore a dress of dark surah silk with natural flowers, tea roses and smilax, and looked lovely in the attire, while the groom was dressed in the conventional suit. The bridesmaid wore a dark brocaded silk dress with natural flowers.
      After the ceremony was over came the congratulations, after which refreshments consisting of fruit, ice cream and cake was served. The evening’s enjoyment was enlivened by music both instrumental and vocal and the company departed for their homes at 11:30 o’clock.

Gilead, Ohio, Mr. Wieland’s former home, on Thursday morning, where they will visit for a couple of weeks, returning to Brainerd the early part of October.
