NUPTIAL VOWS REPEATED HERE LAST SATURDAY Bette GAUGER Marries Howard GELDERNICK Sept 1 (1945)
Miss Bette Jean GAUGER, Marshfield, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emil GAUGER, Stratford, became the bride of Howard GELDERNICK, of Chili, at a wedding ceremony read Sept. 1 at 2:30 o’clock in the Lutheran parsonage. The Rev. G.M. Krueger officiated.
Attendants were Miss Joyce GAUGER, who served as her sister’s maid of honor, Miss Pauline and Jim GELDERNICK, twin sister and brother of the groom, and Donald MEYERS.
For the occasion the bride wore a traditional white satin bridal frock designed with a sweetheart neckline, long sleeves ending in points at the wrists, and a full-length skirt extending into a court train. Her long tulle veil edged with lace fell from a beaded headdress and she carried a bouquet of roses and swansonia.
Both the maid of honor and bridesmaid wore white. Their frocks were styled with fitted satin bodices and full net skirts while flowered wreaths caught their matching blusher veils to their curls. They carried colonial bouquets of gladioli.
For jewelry all three wore heart-shaped lockets.
Following the wedding ceremony 30 guests were served dinner at the home of the bride’s parents decorated with white streamers and wedding bells. Cut flowers added to the décor and a large wedding cake formed the centerpiece at the table. In the evening a wedding dance and shower were held in the Country Ballroom.
The couple will reside in Chili where the groom is employed as a cheesemaker. Mrs. GELDERNICK will continue to be employed by Normington’s Laundry at Marshfield.
