Landwehr, Ethel (28 JUN 1944)

At the Emmanuel Lutheran Church at March, near Stratford (Marathon Co., Wis.), which was decorated with baskets of garden flowers, was the scene of a very pretty wedding, Wednesday afternoon, June 28, 1944, at 2 o’clock when Miss Ethel Landwehr, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Landwehr of Stratford, exchanged nuptial vows with Harold Froehlich, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Froehlich of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.). The Rev. J. Carl Bast performed the double ring ceremony.

Entering the church by the strains of the wedding march played by Mrs. J. Carl Bast, were the little flower girl, Janice Landwehr, 4 year old sister of the bride, dressed in a long yellow net dress with yellow bow knots and matching shoulder length veil, carrying a basket of sweet peas and daisies; and the little 6 year old ring bearer, Bennie Landwehr, of Edgar, cousin of the bride, dressed in a dark suit and white shoes, carrying the rings in a lily surrounded with sweet peas and tied with white ribbon.

Elaine Landwehr, sister of the bride, and Lorrain Carteron, cousin of the groom, were the bride’s attendants and were dressed in pink and blue net dresses with bow knots, styled identically alike, and matching shoulder length veils, carried wrist corsages of white gladioli and pink carnations, each wore gold crosses and chains, gifts of the bride.

The bride chose a gown of a long white satin and marquisette with lace butterfly inserts desgned with a sweetheart neck line, fitted bodice buttoned down the back, three quarter length sleeves, skirt ended in a long train, also had lace butterfly inserts. Her fingertip veil of net and lace was caught to a headdress of seed pearls and large orange blossoms and carried a bouquet of white gladioli and stephanotis. She wore a double string of pearls, a gift of the groom.

Dewaine Landwehr, brother of the bride, and Delbert Richmond, cousin of the groom, were the groom’s attendants, all wearing dark suits with white carnation boutonnieres.

The mothers wore shoulder corsages of white and pink carnations. Grandma Richmond and Grandpa Landwehr wore pink roses.

Miss Marina Peck of Unity sang, "I Love You Truly" and "Jesus Lead On", accompanied by Mrs. J. Carl Bast at the organ.

A wedding supper for immediate relatives was served at the home of the bride’s parents, which was decorated with wedding bells and pin, white and blue streamers, and yellow bow knots, forming a canopy overhead. A three tier wedding cake centered the table.

A wedding dance was held that evening in Colby.

Those from away who attended the wedding were: Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Froehlich, Mr. and Mrs. George Walthausen and daughter of Barrington, Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. Irvin Steve, Elgin, Ill.; Mrs. H.M.
