Cook, Shirley J. (Marriage - 13 Aug. 1941)
Shirley J. Cook, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George J. Cook of Unity, became the bride of Everett L. Capes of Unity, Wednesday afternoon, August 13th, at a ceremony performed at the Unity Methodist church by Rev. L. H. Holmes of LaFarge, Wis., and Rev. R. J. Fleming of Virocqua, Wis., brother in laws of the bride. She was given away in marriage by her father, Geo. J. Cook of Unity, Wis. During the ceremony, two songs, "Because" and "I Love You Truly," were sung by the Wears sisters of Marshfield.
The bride was attired in a becoming bridal dress of heavenly blue velvet-dotted organza having a sweetheart neckline, fitted bodice and very full skirt, the Princess Ann sleeves coming to a point over the hand. She wore a trailing veil of matching color falling from a halo head-dress. Around her neck she wore a double strand of pearls. She carried a large colonial bouquet of white roses, sweet peas and baby breath.
Mrs. Russel Andrews, sister of the bride, of Spencer, Wis., was maid of honor and she wore a floor length dress of pink taffeta with sweetheart neckline and short puffed sleeves with matching head-dress of colonial design. Her small colonial bouquet consisted of white roses, sweet peas and baby breath. Mrs. Donald Powers, sister of the groom, of Unity, Wis., acted as bridesmaid and she wore a floor length dress of yellow taffeta with sweetheart neckline and short puffed sleeves and also matching head-dress of colonial design. Her small colonial bouquet consisted of white roses, sweet peas and baby breath.
The groom was attended by Russel Andrews and Donald Powers. Jane Andrews of Spencer was flower bearer and wore a white formal dress of shadowed organza with matching shoulder length veil. Raymond Cook, nephew of the bride, was ring bearer and wore a black satin swallow-tail coat.
Supper was served in the church parlors and reception was given at the home of the bride, the home being nicely decorated with blue and white streamers, wedding bells and flowers.
They left on a wedding trip to the northern part of Wisconsin and will be at home after August 20th at 307 A. South Cedar St., Marshfield, Wis., where the groom is employed by Lloyd Felkers.
