Fergus Falls is Lincoln-Robinson Wedding Locale

The marriage of Miss Elizabeth Lucine Lincoln, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robb E. Lincoln of Fergus Falls, Minn., to Dr. William Gordon Robinson, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Robinson of 456 Elder Lane, Winnetka, took place August 4, in the Federated church in Fergus Falls. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. L. W. Hallett, rector of St. James Episcopal church.
The bride wore her mother's wedding gown of cream chiffon over taffeta and a Juliet cap of old lace. She carried an arm bouquet of white roses. Her sister, Miss Katherine Lincoln, who was her maid of honor and only attendant, was costumed in a frock of lime green organdy of the same period, also a part of her mother's trousseau, and carried a bouquet of yellow and white daissies. Dr. Robinson was attended by Dr. Baxter Smith of the Univeristy hospital, Minneapolis. Harry Barnard Lincoln and Thomas A. Lincoln were ushers.
A wedding luncheon and reception for members of the family was held at the bride's home immediately following the ceremony, after which Dr. Robinson and his bride departed on a wedding trip which took them to Duluth and thence by the Great Lakes to Detroit. They are now at home in Hart, Mich., where Dr. Robinson is practicing medicine.
Mrs. Robinson was graduated from Carleton college and received her M.A. degree from Smith college. For the past year she has been a member of the faculty of the Milwaukee Downer seminary. Dr. Robinson also received his B.A. degree from Carleton college and is a graduate of the Northwestern university school of medicine.
Among the out-of-town guests were the bridegroom's father and mother and his brother, Frank Robinson, all of Winnetka. Miss Ione Seafield of Washington, D.C., Mr. and Mrs. P.R. Terry of Madison, Wis., Mrs. G.E. Tallmadge of St. Paul, and Miss Ruth Lincoln, of Wahpeton.
