At a quiet but very pretty home wedding, MR. RUSSELL NICHOLSON, of Des Moines, and MISS MARCIA WALLACE, was solemnized at the home of the bride's parents, MR. and MRS. GOULD WALLACE, in this city on last Thursday evening, Rev. J.E. Habliston, Pastor of the M.E. Church officiating; only immediate relatives being in attendance, the home being appropriately decorated for the happy event, which was followed by a delicious wedding dinner.
The bride is one of Leon's most popular young ladies who has been connected with a financial firm in Des Moines for several years, and enjoys the friendship of a wide circle of friends. The groom is a graduate of Drake University, taking a Law Course, and is one of the successful young business men of Des Moines. The happy young couple departed the same evening on a honeymoon trip to Chicago after which they will be at home in Des Moines.
Out of town guests were the groom's father, Mr. Frank W. Nicholson, Mr. and Mrs. O.M. Brockett and Mr. and Mrs. Ed Mahan, of Des Moines, and the bride's sister, Mrs. N.A. Whitmore, of Palisade, Nev.
