Berg, Mayvis (24 AUG 1940)

Trinity Lutheran Church, candle-lighted and decorated with garden flowers and streamers in pastel colors was the setting for the wedding of Mayvis Berg and Romaine Rossow, Saturday evening, August 24, at 7 o’clock. The Rev. J. Langholz officiated.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a formal gown of white silk faille, made in princess style with a train. She wore a fingertip length veil and a bluish veil and carried a bouquet of white lilies.

Miss Marliss Berg, sister of the bride, served as maid of honor. She was attired in aqua silk taffeta made with a tiered skirt and wore a shoulder length veiol and elbow-length gloves. She wore a shoulder bouquet of pink roses.

Miss Charlotte Ratzburg, the bridesmaid, was dressed in pink silk taffeta. She also wore a shoulder length veil and elbow-length gloves and a shoulder bouquet of pink roses. Robert Vandehey of Appleton, a cousin of the bridegroom and Harold Berg, the bride’s brother, were the groom’s attendants.
