familysearch has the original scans here some documents that were submitted at the marriage:
pages 1718-1723

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-15005-17131-4?cc=...

page 1723 probably the most interesting Johannes Koppen didn't have to serve in the military because he is too small in stature. He was finally released from duty because two brothers of him stood in for him and served.
