     An interesting wedding of Saturday evening was that of Miss Helen Kathryn Freeman of Lincoln, to Harry E. Sackett, jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Sackett of this city, which was solemnized at 8 o'clock at the Tabernacle Christian church, Lincoln. Rev. Leslie Smith read the marriage ceremony in the presence of the immediate families and intimate friends.
     Vases of summer flowers decorated the altar and the church. As an organ prelude, Miss Hazel Voortman of Beatrice played "To A Wild Rose" by MacDowell. Miss Lucille Reilly, accompanied by Miss Voortman, sang "O Promise Me" and "At Dawning." The Lohengrin wedding march was used for the processional of the bridal party, and the Mendelssohn wedding march as the recessional. During the ceremony, Miss Voortman softly played "To A Wild Rose."
     The bride was lovely in a white taffeta gown, fashioned along princess lines. The skirt was floor length, and the dress was made with short puffed sleeves. She wore white pumps and white lace mitts, and carried a shower of bouquet of white roses, baby breath and swansonia.
     The bride chose her sister-in-law Mrs. Harlan Freeman, as her matron of honor. She was gowned in a floor length dress of cream lace. Cream lace mitts and white shoes completed her costume and she wore a corsage of Ophelia roses and swansonia.
     Miss Mary Louise Sackett, sister of the groom, attended the bride as a bridesmaid. She was attired in a floor length frock of deep pink taffeta. The dress was fashioned with short puffed sleeves trimmed with blue velvet. She wore pink mitts and white shoes and a corsage of pink roses and swansonia.
     Carl Sonderegger of Beatrice attended the groom as best man. George Monroe and Kenneth Freeman of Lincoln acted as ushers.
     A reception followed the ceremony in the church parlor with Mrs Clark Perkins in charge. Janet Loeber had charge of the guest book.
