Winchell, Vernetta (26 OCT 1927)

A very pretty wedding took place at the Little White Church Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 when Miss Vernetta, the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dell Winchell, became the wife of Mr. Max Wilke, one of our prosperous farmers northwest of town.

The church was a bower of loveliness, decked in gay streamers of orchid, yellow and white to match the gowns of the ladies of the bridal party, and ferns and flowers added the final touch.

The groomsmen, George Wilke and Harold Winchell, followed the room down the west aisle of the church and the bride, on the arm of her father, came down the east aisle, preceded by her bridesmaids, Eunice Winchell and Hilda Krakenberger, and they all met at the alter rail where the double ring ceremony was performed by the pastor, Rev. F. P. Walter.

Miss Ardath Hugoboom played the wedding march and after the ceremony sang "I Love You Truly" with Mrs. A. W. Schief at the piano. The bridal party then marched to the vestibule where the friends offered congratulations and rice.

The bride was beautifully attired in a creation of white silk with a lovely veil and corsage bouquet. The bridesmaids, Hilda Krakenberger wore a lovely orchid silk gown and Eunice Winchell a dainty yellow voile gown, while the gentlemen wore the conventional dark suits, making a very pleasing picture all together.

After the ceremony, the bridal party motored to Medford for pictures and then back to the bride's home where a bounteous wedding dinner was served to a large crowd of relatives and friends.

In the evening, several charivari parties visited them and made din enough to wake most anyone.

Mr. and Mrs. Wilke left Thursday for a few days motor trip to Sheboygan and Milwaukee, after which they will be at home to their many friends, for their friends are many, both having been raised in Dorchester Country and are as popular a couple as wee have and a great host join us in offering the best of wishes. May their joys be many and their sorrows little ones.
