Christian Godskesen and Annie Jensen's marriage

I am going to switch gears and move over to the Godskesen line. Above is the marriage certificate of Christian Godskesen and Annie Jensen. My transcription with handwritten portions in italic:

I received it from the Geneaological Forum of Oregon, Inc., who have a lot of great stuff on their website:
