Rev. G. W. Lester Reads Service Before Small Group of Guests.

Candelabra, garden flowers, palms and ferns formed the setting of an attractive home wedding when Miss Opal La Meer became the bride of Russell Jensen, son of Mrs. Oscar Jensen, 1556 Taylor avenue, in a ceremony at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas La Meer, 1420 Quincy avenue, Saturday at 4 o’clock.

The Rev. George W. Lester, former pastor of the Grange Avenue M. E. church, now residing in Milwaukee, read the service in the presence of immediate relatives and intimate friends.

A gown of white chiffon, falling softly to ankle length, was worn by the bride. She held a bridal bouquet of white roses and sweet peas. Her sole attendant was Miss Beulah Rhodes, who was costumed in an ankle length gown of pink chiffon. Miss Rhodes held a bouquet of harmonizing pink roses and sweet peas.

The groom was attended by Clarence Jensen.

Miss Beulah La Meer, the bride’s sister, sang “O Promise Me” and “I Love You Truly.” Margaret Williams Owen played the wedding march.

Dinner was served at the home of the bride’s parents for members of the bridal party and 25 guests. Pink and white prevailed in table appointments.

Mr. and Mrs. Jensen left immediately on a wedding trip through northern Wisconsin. After July 1 they will be at home to their friends at 1415 Cleveland avenue. The groom is employed at Webster Electric company.
