Zion Lutheran Church, at Colby, provided the setting for the marriage of Evelyn Louise Knuf, Unity, to Gerald George Kops, Unity, Saturday afternoon, June 20, at 2:30 with the Rev. O. Hoffman officiating.

Miss Dorathea Wolz, Big Bend, cousin of the bride, served as maid of honor and matron of honor was Mrs. Leroy Kops, Milwaukee, sister-in-law of the groom. Bridesmaids were Miss Bette Seefluth of Stevens Point, Miss Caroline Bezak, Unity and Miss Bonnie Binning, Unity. The attendants wore gowns of moss green, pink, pansy, nile green and camellia, respectively.

Their dresses were of nylon tulle over white taffeta with shirtwaist styled bodices that closed with tiny covered buttons to the waistline. All the attendants wore white nylon mitts with pleated cuffs and their shell shaped hats were covered with pleated nylon tulle matching each dress. The colonial bouquets were of white mums.

The bride, who was presented in marriage by her uncle, Frederick Gumz, Spencer, was attired in a floor length gown of white nylon tulle over satin with full skirt of accordion pleated nylon tulle with apron overskirt of the same material edged with matching lace. The bodice featured a Chantilly lace stand up collar and yoke which extended to the waistline and the long sleeves were of nylon tulle edged with diamond shaped cuffs of lace.

Her finger-tip lace-edged French illusion veil was caught to a shell shaped hat of lace over satin with seed pearls scattered across the brim. She carried a bouquet of white mums and trailing ivy centered with a white orchid.
