...ever witnessed in East Grand Forks was solemnized at Sacred Heart Catholic church yesterday morning at 9 o'clock, when Miss Fern Hollingsworth and Frank Longtine were united in marriage. The church was decorated with summer blossoms, while banks of green added to the richness of the effect.

Promptly at the appointed hour the wedding party entered the church to strains of the wedding march, and preceded down the aisle to the alter, where they knelt before Father Hogar who performed the ceremony. The bride was attired in a gown of white poru de crepe, wearing a large white picture hat, and carrying an arm bouquet of bride's roses. She was attended by Miss Mary Ryan as bridesmaid, who was daintily gowned in white and carried roses.

John McDonald was the groom's best man. After the church services were over, the wedding party and invited guests repaired to the home of Mrs. A. B. Karnes, where a beautifully appointed wedding breakfast was served. Covers were laid for 20 and the home was festive in artistic decorations of sweet pea and nasturtiums. At noon Mr. and Mrs. Longtine left over the Northern Pacific for a month's wedding trip. They will visit the Seattle exposition and also make a tour of the coast states before returning to East Grand Forks where they will make their home.
