Miss Alberta Ann Apfelbeck, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Apfelbeck of Colby, and Marvin A.

The bride’s cousin, Miss Lorraine Apfelbeck, served as maid of honor and another cousin, Miss Lorraine Apfelbeck, served as maid of honor and another cousin, Miss Lucille Apfelbeck of Colby and Miss Rose Marie Pecher of Athens were bridesmaids. The groom was attended by the bride’s brothers, Arvin and James Apfelbeck, and his brother, Eugene Endries. Edward Brill ushered.

The bride was attired in a gown which featured an embroidered lace bodice extending into floral designs on the full skirt of bridal satin. Long sleeves of satin and a long satin train were also features of the gown. Her veil was embroidered with matching lace and caught to a pleated lace bonnet trimmed with pearls. Her colonial bouquet consisted of white and pink roses with long white satin streamers.

The maid of honor wore a light pink gown with lace bodice, featuring a sheer yoke set off with a lace collar and a full skirt of net over taffeta. She wore a matching net sweetheart bonnet and carried a colonial bouquet of orchid, white and yellow baby mums tied with long rainbow colored satin streamers.

The bride’s mother wore a navy blue dress and the groom’s mother a grey dress, both accented with shoulder corsages of white carnations.

Dinner and supper were served to about 200 relatives and friends at the home of the bride’s parents, and, in the evening, a dance was held in a hall at Rozellville.
