A very pretty wedding took place at St. Mary’s Catholic church this Thursday morning at 7:00 A.M., when Miss Marie Mertens, R.N., obstetrical supervisor at St. Joseph’s Hospital at Marshfield and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Mertens of Thorp, became the bride of Dr. F. A. Weix, D.D.S., of Colby, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Weix. Miss Laura Beyerl, R.N., of St. Joseph’s Hospital of Marshfield, cousin of the groom, acted as bridesmaid and the groom was attended by Ervin Meyer.

The bride was attired in a becoming gown of green camel’s hair cloth with brown accessories and her bouquet consisted of teas roses, babies-breath and sweet peas. The bridesmaid was attired in a dress of rust wool corducle with brown accessories and her bouquet was similar to that of the bride’s. The mother of the groom and the mother of the bride both wore a corsage of mixed flowers.
