Zell am Main, 1872: Rabbi David Zvi Hoffman got married.

One may wonder, ‘A wedding in the Aseres Yemei Teshuva?’ The Mateh Ephraim writes not to do so. But, R’ David Tzvi Hoffman, from the leading Ashkenazic Orthodox figures in the 19th century, found nothing wrong with it. His father-in-law, Rabbi Yonah Rosenbaum, discussed it with some leading authorities, and they came to the conclusion that lekatchila it’s allowed, and so he did.
