At a candleight service which took place Sunday evening at 7 o'clock at Zion's Evangelical Lutheran Church, Granton, Miss Edna Helen HASZ, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herman HASZ, Granton, became the bride of Paul J. GRASS, Manistee, MI, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl GRASS, Evanston, IL. The Rev. A.H. Laesch officiated in the presence of a large group of relatives and friends.

Tall white tapers were placed on the fern-bedecked altar, and candelabra and tall baskets of garden flowers stood at either side. Candles also were placed in the windows.

The bride wore white marquisette over satin, made with a long train and long full sleeves, and ornamented with lace and tiny buttons. Her veil of fingertip length, was edged in lace matching the dress, and was worn with a seed pearl tiara. Her shower bouquet was of white roses, baby breath and sweetheart rosebuds. For jewelry she wore a gold brooch which her grandmother had worn at her wedding, and a gold initial bracelet, the gift of the bridegroom. She carried a lace handkerchief which her mother had carried at her wedding.

The maid of honor, Miss Lois GRASS, a sister of the groom, was attired in yellow marquisette, made with a sweetheart neckline and trimmed with aqua velvet ribbons. Her aqua veil was of shoulder length. She carried Talisman roses and blue delphinium.

Miss Lorraine GARBISCH, who served as bridesmaid, appeared in blue marquisette designed in a fashion similar to that of the maid of honor. Pink velvet ribbons trimmed her gown and her shoulder-length veil also was pink.

Pink organdy dresses were worn by the flower girls, Jerry and Jean MARGESON, Wisconsin Rapids, who carried baskets of mixed flowers.

Armin MOH was best man. Sgt. Theo HILLERT, Fort Leonard Wood, MD, also attended the groom. Ushers were the bride's brothers, Otto and Albert HASZ.

De Forest KERSTEN, Wisconsin Rapids, organist, played as the processional, "Let Us Ever Walk With Jesus," and as the recessional, "Marche Triumphante." During the ceremony Mrs. A.H. LAESCH sang "Take Thou My Hands and Lead Me."

Eighty-five guests were present at the wedding dinner served at the bride's home, which was decorated with baskets of mixed flowers, white wedding bells, and pink, blue, yellow, and aqua streamers. The wedding cake, in the form of a cross, was topped by the same ornament used at the wedding of the bride's parents 26 years ago. Friends who assisted in serving were Marian BROOKS, Margaret BEECKLER, Mrs. Melbourne CLEVELAND, Mrs. Lloyd MARGESON and Dorothy MOH. The bride, a graduate of Granton High School and Wood County Normal School, Wisconsin Rapids, taught for one year at the Hillside School, Neillsville. The groom, who graduated from Concordia High School and Teachers' College, River Forrest, IL, is a teacher at Trinity Lutheran School, Manistee, MI. Mr. and Mrs. GRASS are now on a two weeks' wedding trip to Wisconsin Dells, Racine, and Chicago. After July 14, they will be at home to friends at 614 Pine Street, Manistee, MI.
