Collett-Hopp Wedding

A very pretty wedding occurred Wednesday, February 4th, at 3 p.m. at Immanuel Lutheran Church near Hordville. Rev. William Batzke officiating when Miss Helen Hopp, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Hopp, was married to Herman A. Collett, youngest son of Mrs. William Collett. The bride wore a beautiful dress of white satin with pearl trimmings. The veil was held in place with a wreath and she carried a bouquet of carnations and ferns. The groom was attired in a suit of navy blue. They were attended by Meta Hopp and Mary Rhode as bridesmaids and Walter Hopp and Carl Waak as best men. After the ceremony a large number of guests assembled at the home of the bride’s parents, where a delicious two course supper was served. The color scheme was carried out in pink and white.

They received many beautiful and useful presents. These young people have resided in this vicinity all their lives and are well and favorably known. They will go to housekeeping at once on the farm of the groom five miles north of town. Best wishes for a happy wedded life are extended by their wide circle of friends.
