Gayken, Frances (JUN 1932)

One of the most beautiful weddings of the season took place in the Reformed Church at Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.), when Miss Frances Gayken, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.B. Gayken, became the bride of Franklin C. Peissig, son of Herman J. Peissig.

The bride was attired in a gown of white satin with slippers to match and had a trailing veil. The bride carried an arm bouquet of snow balls and purple iris.

The bride’s attendants were Miss Ida Gayken, sister of the bride, and Hildegarde, Peissig, a sister of the groom. The groom’s attendants were Arthur Peissig, a brother of the groom, and Norbert Laabs, a near friends of both.

The bridesmaids were beautiful in gowns of novelace voile of green and orchid and wore blond slippers and carried arm bouquets of snowballs and ferns.

Rev. K.K. Hartmann read the services. Four ladies of the community sang two songs.

The bridal party had a group picture taken at Medford, after which a delicious supper was laid at the home of the bride’s parents for relatives and near friends.

A free wedding dance was given by the young couple Wednesday evening which was very well attended.

From this date the young couple are at home at the farm of the groom’s father, Herman J. Peissig.
