These were not marriages, but the issuance of marriage licenses.  All I can surmise is that, for some reason, they did not marry after the issuance of the first license, but after the issuance of the second license, which is supported by the birth of the first child in 1883, rather than 1882.

Frank is out of order, that is, he follows household 301/313.  If you page back to household 265/273 (Image #19 of 34, p. 125B), you find the other lodgers and staff in the hotel, which appears to be the same hotel he was living in in 1930.
