The Muscatine Journal and News-Tribune, dated October 17, 1914, reported on the marriage ceremony for Dr. Leslie Lewis Carr and Lavanda Gardner.

“Wellman, Ia., Oct. 17 —  One of the prettiest home weddings of the season was consummated at the W. P. Gardner home Wednesday, at 5 o-clock p. m., when their daughter, Lavander, was united in marriage with Dr. Leslie Carr of Cleremont, Iowa.  The short ring service was used and was performed by Reverend DeYoe of Abilene, Kansas, a brother-in-law of the groom, in the presence of about 50 guests.  The bride’s father gave her away and the wedding march was played by the bride’s mother [Nettie Gassner Gardner].  Miss Suzanne Gardner acted as bridesmaid and Victor Carr, as the best man. The bride’s dress was of white silk crepe with lace tunic, and carried yellow chrysanthemums.  The bride’s bouquet was white rosebuds and lilies of the valley.  After the ceremony a four course supper was served. The bride is a graduate of the local schools and Iowa Wesleyan and for three years a teacher in the Victor schools.  The groom graduated from the Wellman schools and Northwestern college of medicine and is now practicing at Cleremont, Iowa.  The happy couple grew up here  [in Wellman] and have the best wishes of all for a happy married life.”

“Ad.  [Addison] and Dave Taylor of South Dakota, and Harve and Dave Taylor of St. Paul, Minn. [actually Harvey Taylor Carr & David Arthur Carr] were here to attend the Gardner-Carr nuptials.”
