Kuester, Elmira M. (27 APR 1938)

White lace over white satin fashioned the floor length wedding gown of Miss Elmira Mildred Kuester, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kuester, town of Warner (Clark Co., Wis.), who became the bride of Phillip Carl Mattes Jr., son of Phillip Mattes, Sr., town of Reseburg (Clark Co.), at a simple ceremony performed at the West Side Reformed Church Wednesday afternoon at 2 o’clock.

The Rev. P.H. Franzmeier officiated at the service, and Mrs. Franzmeier played the wedding march.

The bride wore her mother’s wedding veil and carried a bouquet of white carnations and pink snapdragons.

Miss Elvera Kuester, twin sister of the bride, and Irvin Kuester, Oak Park, Ill., a brother, attended the couple.

The bridesmaid’s gown was of pink lace over pink satin and her flowers were similar to the bride’s.

A wedding dinner was served to the bridal party at the home of the bride’s parents, and in the evening a wedding dance was given at the Legion hall in Thorp.

Mr. and Mrs. Mattes will make their home at Reseburg, where the bridegroom is engaged in farming.
