Miss Estella Marit Kunze, daughter of Joseph Kunze of Abbotsford, Wisconsin, became the bride of Theodore Kulas, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Kulas of Athens, in St. Mary’s church Saturday at 9:00 A.M., Rev. N. B. Beschta officiating. Mrs. Hubert Apfelbeck of Abbotsford, the bride’s cousin, was matron of honor and Mary Kunze of Abbotsford and Mrs. Dan Angelich of Royal Oak, Mich., the bride’s sister, were bridesmaids. The groom was attended by Hubert Apfelbeck as best man and Lawrence Kunze, the bride’s brother, and Dan Angelich as groomsmen.

The bride, who approached the altar on the arm of her father, was attired in a white marquisette over satin gown featuring a lace yoke and long sleeves which came to points at the wrists. Her veil was fastened to an orange blossom crown. Her bouquet consisted of red roses. Her attendants were all gowned alike in yellow, lilac and Nile green marquisette over taffeta with matching veils, respectively. Each carried a bouquet of colored carnations.
