Miss Ruth Anna Herrmann, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Herrmann of Colby, Wis., and Mr. Arnold E. Ruprich, son of Mr. Joe Ruprich of Dorchester, Wis., were united in marriage at the First Evangelical and Reformed church in Colby Saturday, Aug. 22, at 4:30 o’clock in the afternoon, Rev. Paul Franzmeier of Greenwood reading the marriage ceremony. The altar was decorated with baskets of gladiolas and mixed flowers. Mrs. George Miller, organist, played the wedding march from Lohengrin during the double ring ceremony. A solo, "O Promise Me," was sung by the bride’s cousin, Eugene Herrmann of Milwaukee. The girl’s choir sang, "Who Will Our Pilot Be."
The bride was attired in a dress of white silk marquisette with sweetheart neckline, long frill sleeves shirred at the wrist. Her long veil of silk illusion was edged with chantilly lace and seed pearl crown. Her bouquet consisted of white roses and her only jewelry was a three strand pearl necklace.
The maid of honor, Miss Lorinda Horn of Greenwood, cousin of the bride, and bridesmaids, Miss Irene Herrmann, sister of the bride, and Miss Hildegarde Ruprich of Dorchester, Wis., sister of the groom, were all dressed alike in dresses of sheer blue ninon with lace insertions and blue floral head bands with seed pearls. Their wrist corsages consisted of roses and sweet peas. They wore two strand necklaces, gifts of the bride.
