Wedding Wednesday–Arthur Harry Iverson and Ingrid Anna Gillberg

These are my paternal grandparents on their wedding day – Arthur Harry Iverson and Ingrid Anna Gillberg.  Ingrid’s parents emigrated from Sweden sometime between 1907 and 1911.  Ingrid was born in the United States.  Arthur and Ingrid were married at the home of Ingrid’s parents in Ely, White Pine, Nevada on 27 June 1931.  I was reading through the transcript of my Grandma Ingrid’s vocal history, and she said that one of the Christmas traditions she and her family had when she was growing up was to decorate the ceilings with paper from corner to corner.  It looks like the family did the same thing on this festive occasion of Arthur and Ingrid’s marriage.

P.S.  You may remember Arthur from my previous blog posts titled I Found Clark Gable's Mechanic in the 1940 Census! and Tombstone Tuesday - Arthur Harry Iverson.

Thanks for reading!
