The source citation for this record is:

"Montana County Marriages, 1865–1950", indexed database with digital images, FamilySearch (https//familysearch.org), "Lewis and Clarke County, Vol. H (1903-1908)," page 373 (image 95 of 700), Severt Leland and Amelia Brocke entry.

The Leland family resided in Gardiner, Montana in 1904, and the Brocke family resided in Kendrick, Idaho.  I don't know why they married in Helena - perhaps they met and married in a place away from their families.

Severt Oliver Leland (1878-1940) and Amelia Anna Brocke (1884-1975) are my wife's paternal grandparents.  They had four children born in Montana between 1904 and 1911, and one born in San Francisco in 1915.

They may have knew the minister or just a quick stop on the train.

That's a great find with a nice clear image. When I find a document like this written in a legible hand I want to thank the person who recorded it.
