Falk and Kolberg united in marriage

A very pretty wedding occurred at the home of Mrs. Marie Kolberg on Third Avenue at high noon on Wednesday, July 16, when her daughter, Miss Barbara Kolberg, was united in marriage to Charles F. Falk. The ceremony was performed by Rev. J R. Davies, pastor of First Methodist Episcopal Church of this city. They were attended by Miss Katherine Kolberg, a sister of the bride, as bridesmaid, and Herman Falk, brother of the groom, as best man.

The bride wore white Georgette crepe gown and carried a shower bouquet of roses and lilies of the valley.

Immediately after the ceremony a wedding dinner was served.

After the dinner, the happy couple left in Mr. Falk’s car for a trip to the Twin Cities and to Gordon, Wisc., the former home of the bride. They expect to be home in Two Harbors after Aug. 1.

The bride has lived in Two Harbors four the past four years, coming here from Superior, and is well and favorably known by all. She has been associated with her sister in the millinery business.

Mr. Folk is one of the progressive businessmen in Two Harbors, being the owner of the Red Cross drug store. He has lived in this city for the greater part of his life, having been educated in public schools and later learning the drug business. He received his diploma at a Minneapolis school with high honors.

The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Falk wish them much happiness throughout their married life.
