Aaberg, Myrtle J. (3 JAN 1933)

The United Lutheran Church was the scene of a very pretty wedding Tuesday, Jan. 3rd, 1933, at high noon when Miss Myrtle Jeanette Aaber, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. M.K. Aaberg, became the bride of Dr. Arthur Alfred Fuhlbrigge of Des Plaines, Ill., son of Mrs. Johanna Fuhlbrigge of Watertown, S.D.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. M.K. Aaberg, father of the bride, in the presence of the congregation and friends and relatives.

Green and white crepe paper, white wedding bells and lighted tapers on the altar were used in decoration.

Miss Carol Iverson of Crandon presided at the organ, playing the "Bridal Chorus" from Lohengrin as the processional and Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" as recessional. Oben Sime of Minneapolis sang two solos, "At Dawning" and "I Love You Truly."

Misses Alborg Midtlien of Chicago and Edith Peterson of Glenwood City acted as maids of honor and Misses Helen Camasky and Alma Hyland of Chicago as bridesmaids. The groom was attended by the bride's brother, Lindeman Aaberg, as best man. The ushers were Arnold and Monrad Aaberg, Chicago, brothers of the bride. Little Joan Aaberg, nice of the bride, was flower girl.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her oldest brother, Karl J. Aaberg, was attired in ivory satin, trimmed in all over lace made with a fitted bodice and floor length skirt. Her long tulle veil fell from a cap effect. White satin pumps and a pearl necklace, the latter a gift from the groom, completed her costume. She carried a prayer book.

The maids of honor wore Nile green silk crepe with green pumps and velvet turbans of a darker shade of green, and white velvet gloves. They carried bouquets of yellow and white chrysanthemums and baby's breath tied in yellow tulle.

The bridesmaids were also dressed in close fitting green gowns trimmed in a darker shade of velvet with turbans and silk sandals to match. They carried green velvet mufs and wore white velvet gloves. The little flower girl was dress in embroidered net over green silk, made Colonial style. She wore a green ribbon sash and green slippers and carried a basket of mixed flowers.

The groom and his attendants wore tuxedos.

Following the ceremony a dinner was given by the congregation in the church parlors, with Mrs. P.W. Gullord as chairman.

Out of town guests were Rev. and Mrs. W.G. Fuhlbrigge, Coleman; Mrs. John Midtlien, Stanley, Mrs. Henry Baffeti, Sister Dina Folland, Deaconess, Chicago, Mr. and Mrs. K.J. Aaberg and daughter Joan, Mankato, Minn., Art Iverson and daughter Carolyn, Crandon, Arnold Aaberg, Madison, Rockwell Peterson, Miss Edith Peterson, Glenwood City, Lindeman and Monrad Aaberg, and the Misses Helen Camasky, Alma Hyland, Alborg Midtlien, all of Chicago.

The young couple will be at home to their friends after Feb. 1st at 707 Center St., Des Plaines, Ill., where the groom is a practicing physician and surgeon.

The Gleaner joins their many friends in extending best wishes for a happy wedded life.
