Wedding Wednesday - Kettelhodt-Smith

Frederick T. Kettelhodt married Mrs. Elvena E. Smith on June 16, 1921.  It is the second marriage for each of them.  Frederick Kettelhodt's first wife, Ottilie (Kriesel) Kettelhodt, died Jan 5, 1920 and Elvena E. (Kriesel) Smith's first husband, Frank, died July 17, 1919.

  Frederick T. Kettelhodt and Mrs. Elvena E. Smith of Princeton were married at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Sundboom in St. Paul by Rev. Heyne at 7:30 p. m. on June 16.
  The bride was gowned in blue Canton silk crepe and carried a bridal wreath of rosebuds.  She was attended by her daughter, Mrs. C. R. Sundboom, and Mr. Sanboom (sic) was best man.  Hazel Sundboom was ring bearer and Lucille Sundboom flower girl.  Mrs. Sylvia Troseth, niece of the bride, played the wedding march.
  Following the ceremony a wedding supper was served, those present being E. G. Waldhoff and son, Earl, North Branch; Bernard Klaus and son, Harry, St. Paul; Mrs. Lydia Apgar, Mrs. Sylvia Troseth, Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Peterson and son, Jerome, St. Paul; Miss Elenore Smith, daughter of the bride, Princeton.
  Their many friends wish them their full share of life's blessings.

  Ottilie and Elvena are not sisters.  I'm sure they must be related somehow, but I haven't figured out the connection yet.  I'll let you know once I figure it out.
