Zion American Lutheran church of Granton was beautifully decorated for the wedding of Miss Irene M. Gluch and Donald H. Braatz, both of Grant Township, which took place at 8 p.m., June 30. Ferns, palms and flowers with tall white tapers arranged in branches candelabra, formed a lovely setting for this early summer wedding.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, Herman Gluch, wore a gown of sheer white marquisette, a long veil falling from a tulle headdress. She carried a shower bouquet of tea roses and swain Sonia. Rev. J. G. Buth performed the double-ring ceremony in the present of a large group of relatives and friends. Mrs. Buth played appropriate nuptial music and Olga Buth sang.

The bride’s attendants, Misses Vivian and Lucille Gluch, Granton, and Gladys Bauer, Pa Porte City, Iowa, were dressed in white and carried colonial bouquets. Miss Bauer was a college friend and co-worker of the bride. Algernon Breseman was best man. Leonard Gluch, a brother of the bride, and Robert Braatz, a cousin of the groom, acted as ushers. The men wore Oxford grey suits, and rose boutonnieres.
