Kalepp, Alice (Marriage - 11 Aug. 1945)

Miss Alice Kalepp, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Kalepp of Abbotsford, became the bride of Cpl. Gilbert Kattre of Fort Denning, Ga., at a ceremony performed by Rev. John Brandt of Dorchester at the Christ Evangelical Lutheran church, Abbotsford, at 2:00 P.M. Saturday, August 11th. Inez Gust was the organist and Melvin Boelke the soloist. Baskets of gladiolas decorated the altar for the occasion.

For her wedding the bride wore white net over a satin skirt and train, the gown having a satin bodice with net yoke. The long sleeves ended in points over the wrists, and her fingertip veil fell from a beaded headdress. She wore a single strand of pearls and carried a shower bouquet of red roses with white carnations and streamers of sweet peas.

Mrs. Norman Kalepp, the matron of honor, was attired in pink marquisette over satin gown with a matching headdress and veil. Miss Lenore Barry, the bridesmaid, had a gown of yellow net over satin skirt and satin bodice. Her headdress and veil also matched and both attendants had elbow-length gloves and wrist corsages.
