Ewert, Bonnie Lee (Marriage - 22 Aug. 1953)

Miss Bonnie Lee Ewert, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Myron Ewert, Fond du Lac, was given in marriage by her father, to Wilbur Witte, son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Witte Sr., Unity, during a double-ring ceremony Saturday, August 22, at Trinity Lutheran Church here.

The Rev. Claude Vander Stoep had charge of the marriage rites during which Mrs. Dorothy Olson sang "O Promise Me" and "Because."

Mrs. Richard Witte Jr., of Spencer, sister-in-law of the groom, wore a strapless gown of yellow topped with a lace jacket and carried yellow carnations and white gladioli when she served as matron of honor.

Another sister-in-law of the groom, Mrs. Hubert Witte, Unity, and Miss Arlene Witmer, Spencer, were frocked like the matron of honor in pink and green, respectively, when they enacted the roles of bridesmaids. Each had a bouquet of white gladioli and carnations matching their dresses.

Richard Witte, Jr., Spencer, was his brother’s best man and another brother, Hubert Witte, Unity and William Marten, Unity, were groomsmen. Edwin Ewert, Wausau, an uncle of the bride and Herbert Witte, Unity, brother of the groom, ushered.

Little Sandra and Susan Olson, twins from Unity, were the flower girls. They carried blue carnations and white gladioli.

The white strapless net over satin bridal gown was designed with a lace jacket which had sleeves coming to points at the wrists. The finger-tip veil of illusion was attached to a rhinestone crown. Red roses and white carnations formed the bridal bouquet.

The bride’s mother wore a flowered navy blue dress with red accessories with which she had a corsage of pink roses and yellow carnations. Red roses and yellow carnations formed the corsage for the groom’s mother, who wore a black dress with matching accessories.
