The First Evangelical Church of Sheboygan was the scene of a beautiful candlelight wedding service a week ago Tuesday when Miss Muriel Miller of 819 Bluff Av., Sheboygan, exchanged matrimonial vows with Arthur Meinhardt of Sheboygan, son of Mr. and Mrs. August Meinhardt of this city (Owen, Clark Co., Wis.).
The ceremony was performed by the Rev. F.W. Huebner at six p.m. The couple were attended by Miss Geraldine Miller, sister of the bride as maid of honor, and Gordon Evans as best man, and bridesmaids, Alice Meinhardt of Owen, sister of the groom, Luella Goll, cousin of the bride, and Miss Joyce Woog of Sheboygan.
The bride was attired in a gown of Ivory quilted taffeta designed with a square shaped neckline and a long oval shaped train for the ceremony. Her tulle veil fell from a crown of orange blossoms. She carried a large bouquet of Calla lilies. The maid of honor wore a gown of Persian quilted taffeta. Colonial hoop skirt gowns were worn by the bridesmaids in rose, Spanish raisin and Arabian blue. They each carried a Colonial bouquet of sweet peas and roses. The groom and best man were dressed in tuxedoes and wore a gardenia boutonnieres.

Mrs. Walter Klawiter sang, "At Dawning," and Wallace Miller, uncle of the bride, sang, "Beloved It Is Morn." The singers also offered a duet, "The Benediction." The bride’s mother wore a black velvet dress and the bridegroom’s mother was gowned in a dress of teal blue. Both wore gardenia corsages.
