Juhl - Oakes

On August 14, 1933 at McArthur, ND at 4 o'clock in a very beautiful and impressive ceremony, Mrs. Audrea Juhl and Mr. Walter Oakes were united in marriage at the home of the bride. Rev. J. G. Moore of Grand Forks, officiated. Mr. Harvey Oakes, brother of the groom, acted as best man, and Miss Viola Juhl, the bride's sister, as bridesmaid. Little Donna Jean Menzies, Hamilton, was flower girl. The bride was given away by her father, Mr. Fred Juhl. The bride was beautiful in a white dress and accessories and carried a gorgeous bouquet of gipselia, daisies, and achiellea. The bridemaid wore a deep yellow flowered chiffon dress.

Mrs. Frank Bellamy, of Drayton, had charge of the dining room, which was tastefully decorated in yellow and white. The sitting room, where the ceremony took place had orchid and white, the predominating color scheme. After the ceremony a delicious lunch was served under the direction of Mrs. F. Bellamy. The occasion was doubly impressive in that it marked the twenty-fifth wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Juhl.

The guests of the ceremony were: Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Oakes, Henry Juhl, Mrs. W. Hills, Evelyn Hills, Mrs. Jim Berthleson, Mrs. J. G. Moore, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Hart, Edith Oakes, Dr. and Mrs. J. F.

Hills, Amelia Peil, Mrs. Elmer Menzies, Donna Jean, Patricia and Janet Menzies, Marjory DeFrance, and Mrs. Peel.

The young couple will make their home at the Juhl farm, temporarily, where Mr. Oakes is employed.
