Miss LaVonne Holden and *Glenn Sayles are Wedded August 13th

A wedding of interest to the community, at which Rev. C.B. Runsvold officiated, took place at the St. Paul Lutheran church [Union County, South Dakota], southwest of Akron, on Sunday evening, August 13, 1950, at 8:00 o'clock, when Miss LaVonne Arlene Holden, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Holden, became the bride of Sherman Glenn Sayles, son of Bertha Sayles [and the late John Sherman Sayles], thus uniting two old-established families of the Richland vicinity, although the principals did not become acquainted until Mr. Sayles entered the University of Iowa upon return from the service in 1946.

For the wedding, Miss Cora Gunderson played a prelude of organ music until the appointed hour, when Robert Ofstehage sang "Prayer Perfect." At the playing of Lohengrin's wedding march, the ushers, Edsel Holden, Ralph Stryzewski, Percival Peterson and David Blanchard, took their places.

The bridesmaids, Miss Celia Mae Flatberg, of Sioux Falls, gowned in rose and carrying pale green glamelias; Miss Duaine Erickson, of Vermillion, gowned in yellow and carrying rose glamelias, and Miss Phyllis Bloom, of Waterloo, Iowa, a roommate of college days, as maid-of-honor, was gowned in blue and carrying yellow glamelias, then entered the church.

The little flower girls, Lani Ekeland, of Rapid City, S.D., and Mary Ofstehage, wore floor-length white taffeta dresses, with white head-dresses.

Gene Sayles, nephew of the groom, dressed in a gray suit, carried the rings for the double ring ceremony on a blush pink satin pillow.

The bride entered the church with her father. She wore a princess-styled gown of blush pink satin, the round nylon yoke encircled with seed pearls, the gown extending into a cathedral train. Her finger-tip illusion veil of blush pink nylon fell from a head-dress of orange blossoms. For something old she wore an heirloom Norwegian filigree pin of gold, a gift of her paternal grandmother. Her flowers were a cascade of pale pink glamelias.

The groom and his brother, Vernon Sayles, as his attendant, were attired in gray.

During the service Robert Ofstehage sang "Give Me Your Hand," and at the close of the service Mr. Ofstehage sang "The Lord's Prayer."

Miss Holden was attired in a powder blue gown and Mrs. Sayles in a black sheer, both wearing pink carnation head-dresses.

The St. Paul Aid served at the reception immediately following the ceremony, in the church parlors, to some 300 guests, Mrs. A.G. Peterson and Mrs. L.N. Lewison pouring.

Guests from afar were:
Mr. and Mrs. Martin Staum, of Sacramento, Calif.; Mr. and Mrs. O.E. Flatberg and son, Owen; Mr. and Mrs. E.R. Arneson and Miss Belle Fauske, of Sioux Falls; Mrs. Agnes Johnson and Mrs. Mabel Skarloken and son, Harvey, of Toronto, S.D.; Mr. and Mrs. Clare Ekeland and Lani and Craig, of Rapid City, S.D.; Miss Lillian Eidness, of Canton, S.D.; Mr. and Mrs. Glen Allen, of Onawa, Iowa.; M. and Mrs. Chris Anderson, of Hudson, S.D.; Mr. and Mrs. Anton Staum, Mrs. Ivan Streeter, Lyndon Tolefson, of Morningside; Mrs. Golda Forrester, Mrs. Helen Sack, of Sioux City; Mrs. Isabel Erickson, Miss Rozell Williams, of Vermillion, S.D.; Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Stryzewski, Dr. and Mrs. C.R. Mason, Mr. and Mrs. Harley Lewison and Helen, Mrs. Della Sayles [widow of Frank Adelmo Sayles], of Akron, Iowa.
