The marriage of Miss Ida E. Sarbacher and Mr. Christopher Roeper was solemnized at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Ferdinand, Idaho, Tuesday morning at 8:30 o’clock, February 22nd, 1916, by Father Boniface Simmen, in the presence of a large concourse of friends and relatives of the contracting parties.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Sarbacher, a prosperous rancher living a few miles east of this village, and was beautifully gowned in white crepe de chine and was attended by Miss Nettie Weis.  The groom wore the conventional black and was attended by Joseph Sarbacher Jr., a brother of the bride.

Immediately after the ceremony a large number of invited guests accompanied the twain to the home of the bride where the day was pleasantly spent in showering congratulations, feasting and social intercourse, until about four o’clock in the afternoon, when the rooms were prepared for dancing in which old and young then participated until the dawn of the following day.  A most enjoyable time is reported by those present.

The wedding gifts were numerous, useful, beautiful, and some of them very costly.  The Enterprise joins with the host of friends of the contracting parties in whishing them much joy, and a long, happy and prosperous wedded life.

Some time during the evening, a charivari party from this village visited the scenes of the merry-making and were presented with a five-spot with which to buy refreshments.
