The following is taken from The Iowa Journal:—

Mr Hiram G. Norcross became the bridegroom of Miss Emily Lewis in a pretty ceremony today. As the groom appeared he was the cynosure of all eyes. He was charmingly clad in a going-away three-piece suit. A pretty story was current among the guests to the effect that the coat was the same one worn by his father and grandfather on their wedding days.

The severe s simplicity of the groom's pants was relieved by the right leg being artistically caught up by a hose suspender, revealing a glimpse of a brown hole-proof sock, above the genuine leather shoe. Blue braces gracefully curved over each shoulder and were attached to the pants fore and aft, while a loosely knotted blue tie rode under his left ear, above a starched collar with a delicate saw edging. The presence of the bride was also observed by many.
