Lueck, Gladys (29 JUL 1939)

Saturday, July 29 was chosen for one of the most beautiful midsummer wedding days by Miss Gladys Lueck, Loyal, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Lueck, Stratford, when she became the bride of Bernard Leffel, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Leffel, Stratford. They exchanged vows before a flower banked altar of the March Rapids Lutheran Church.

The bride was attended by Bernice Leffel, twin sister of the groom, as maid of honor. Miss Myrtle Leffel, sister of the groom and Miss Lucille Leffel, cousin of the groom, attended as bridesmaids. All three girls are of Chicago, Ill.

Willis Lueck, Wausau, brother of the bride, acted as best man. Edward Dickman, and Otto Hernke of Stratford acted as groomsmen.

The bride was attired in a gown of floor length white lace fashioned in princess style with a cowl neckline caught at each shoulder with a cluster of pearls. The long shoulder puffed sleeves came to a point over thr hand. Her long veil, edged in Chantilly lace, fell from an off the face head dress trimmed with orange blossoms. She carried a large bouquet of lilies.

The maid of honor chose for her gown of floor length, yellow sheer crepe and carried long stemmed chrysanthemums of orchid shades with orchid flowers in her hair.

The bridesmaids wore dresses alike. Miss Myrtle wore blue net over pink satin and Miss Lucille wore blue net over orchid satin. Both wore wrist corsages of sweet peas and gladioli.

The groom and his attendants wore dark suits and boutonnieres of roses and sweet peas.

A reception was held at the home of the groom’s parents for the immediate families. The theme of the decorations were the colors used in the bridal party. At five o’clock covers were laid for 25. A large wedding cake decorated in the traditional manner with a tiny bride and groom standing beneath an arch hung with a silver bell served as a centerpiece for the bride’s table.

In the evening a wedding dance was given at Cherokee Hall.

Mr. Leffel and his bride are at home to their many friends on their farm near Stratford.

A wedding trip is planned for early fall, when they intend a short visit to the northern part of Wisconsin.

Miss Lueck made personal appearance over Radio Station W. S. A. U. by the name of Jackie.
