Kuester, Elmira #2 (27 APR 1938)

At a simple ceremony performed in the West Side Reformed Church, Wednesday afternoon at 2 o’clock, marriage vows were exchanged by Miss Elmira Mildred Kuester, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kuester of the town of Warner (Clark Co., Wis.), and Philip Earl Mattes, Jr., son of Philip Mattes, Sr., town of Reseburg (Clark Co.). The Rev. P.H. Franzmeier officiated at the ring ceremony and the wedding march was played by Mrs. Franzmeier.

Miss Elvera Kuester, twin sister of the bride, and Irvin Kuester of Oak Park, Ill., brother of the bride, acted as the couple’s only attendants.

The bride wore a white floor length lace gown over white satin and wore her mother’s veil. She carried a bouquet of white carnations and pink snapdragons. The bridesmaid wore a pink floor length gown over pink satin, and shoulder corsage similar to the bride. The groom wore a dark blue suit. His attendant wore oxford grey.

A wedding dinner was served for the bridal party at the home of the bride’s parents. In the evening a wedding dance was held at the Legion Hall at Thorp and was attended by a large crowd.

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