The “Society and Club” columns in both the Mankato Free Press and the Mankato Daily Review newspapers February 15, 1918 issues reported the wedding of Marjorie Gerlach (Tib Muller) and Charles Harris (Jack Dunhill).

Miss Marjorie Gerlach, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry C. Gerlach of this city, and Mrs. Charles A. Harris, son of Albert Harris of Winterset, Iowa, were united in marriage last evening at 8 o’clock at the home of the bride’s parents. The ceremony was officiated by Rev. Chas. J. Shutt, pastor of St. John’s Episcopal Church in the presence of sixteen relatives of the contracting parties.

The rooms were prettily decorated with spring flowers, which were used with artistic effect in the living room where the ceremony was performed.

The bride wore a beautiful gown of grey panne velvet, and carried a colonial bouquet of orchids and lilies of the valley. She was attended by Mrs. Joseph E. Prescott (Aunt Dolly) of Des Moines, Iowa, matron of honor, who also wore a handsome gown of grey panne velvet, and a corsage bouquet of pink roses. Henry Gerlach, Jr. (Freddie Muller) attended the groom.

Lohengrin’s Bridal Chorus was played as the processional as the wedding party took their places. Following the wedding ceremony a buffet supper was served by Mrs. M.W. Pugh and her daughter, Elwina.

Mr. and Mrs. Harris left last evening for a wedding trip, and after their return they will be at home at 518 South Fourth Street. The bride’s traveling suit was navy blue.

The bride is a charming and accomplished young lady and the groom is a rising young businessman, connected with the Carlson Construction Company of this city.
