CUPID DEFIED THE STORM.
Pretty Wedding of Miss I. M. Lane and Fred M. Iverson.

An unseasonable storm has no effect upon officious little cupid, who, for all his blindness, can see through the wildest weather, and last evening, at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Lane, 915 Elwood avenue, in Oak Park, a company of more than 100 gathered to witness the marriage of the daughter of the house, Miss Ida M. Lane to Fred M. Iverson, of this city. Rev. Benjamin Longly of Fox M. E. Church officiated. Both the young people are well known, and among guests were several who came from Faribault, the bride's old home. In happy contrast to the elements without, the parlors were elaborately decorated with potted plants and cut flowers, disposed in banks and arches, and arranged in baskets and vases. The marriage vows were spoken in a recess that was closely trimmed with flowers. The display of wedding gifts included two large oil paintings from Faribault friends, a table with oxidized silver top, a silver tea service from the married people in Foss Church, a complete set of china, two handsome arm chairs from Boutell Bros., with whom the bride had been employed and a large number of other useful and ornamental articles. The bride wore a dress of cream bengaline, with trimmings of lace, and carried white flowers. She was attended by her sister, Miss Jennie Lane, Miss Ella Iverson, sister of the groom, and Miss Jennie Stevens, all of whom wore light gowns of soft textures. The newly married couple will leave on their wedding tour Saturday morning, going to Atlanta, Ga., to attend the marriage of a cousin of the bride, returning by way of Chicago to take in the World's Fair.
