Wedding Wednesday - Robert Creeden and Anna Lee Pulskamp

This is the marriage license application and certificate for my grandparents Robert Creeden and Anna Lee Pulskamp.

The marriage license was granted on December 26, 1930 and they were married the next day by Rev. George Hindelang. Rev. Hindelang was the Catholic priest at the Immaculate Conception Church. My grandfather was 19 years old and my grandmother was 20. There is a note on the certificate that the consent of both minors was filed, so I'm wondering if there is another document.

Robert's parents were listed as Charles Creeden and Anna Niehaus. Anna Lee's parents were Mary Gast and Geo. Pulskamp. Robert was working as a filling station attendant, most likely at the filling station managed by his father. Anna Lee was working as an office secretary. In the 1930 census, Anna Lee was working as a secretary at the Farm Bureau, so that might have been her workplace when she was married.

Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of their wedding, but this picture was taken after the ceremony in front of their new home. It's dated December 27, 1930.
