Gluch, Leila (Marriage - 6 Sept. 1941)
Miss Leila Gluch of the Town of Grant became the bride of Everett Brown, Chicago, Ill., at a pretty late summer wedding, which took place at St. Johnís Lutheran Church, Neillsville, at three p.m. Saturday, September six. Mrs. William A. Baumann and Mrs. Erich Sievert sang "Take Thou My Hands and Lead Me."
The maid of honor and the bridesmaids preceded the bride and her father to the altar where the groom and his attendants awaited, the wedding party approaching to the strains of Lohengrinís wedding march, played by Erich Sievert. Rev. William A. Baumann performed the single ring ceremony.
The bride was dressed in a gown of white slipper satin, her lovely long veil being caught at the crown with a cluster of silver flowers. She carried a fan type bouquet, slightly showered, which was composed of Snow White roses with an orchid center.
Miss Helen Pagenkopf, as maid of honor wore gold silk, while the three bridesmaids, Misses Violet and Gladys Gluch, and Esther Seehafer, were dressed in orchid silk with shoulder veils. All of the attendants carried colonial bouquets, gold predominating in Miss Pagenkopfís bouquet and orchid in the bouquets of the bridesmaids. The male members of the wedding party wore tuxedos and boutonnieres. The brideís mother wore a wine colored dress and hat and a corsage of wine and white carnations.
The church decorations, correspondingly beautifully, consisted of two huge baskets of cut flowers in orchid, white and gold combinations. These were placed on the step at either side of the altar. Farther back and slightly toward the center stood two large candelabra containing white tapers, gold and orchid ribbons leading from the center taper to the chancel at the rear of the church, which was decorated with ferns and white flowers. A white runner led down the center aisle to the altar. The pews which were reserved for the relatives and close friends were tied with bows of sheer white ribbon in which were caught flowers to correspond with the colors of the dresses worn by the bride and her attendants.
A wedding dinner was served to a large group of guests at the home of the brideís parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Gluch. The home ** Rest cut off. **
