Vetterkind, Lorraine (8 AUG 1945)

A very pretty wedding was solemnized at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church at Reseburg, on Wednesday afternoon, Aug. 8, 1945, at 2 p.m. when Miss Lorraine Vetterkind of Thorp, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Vetterkind of Island Lake, became the bride of Earl Baehr, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Baehr of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.). Before an altar that was appropriately decorated for the occasion with baskets of gladiolas and ferns, the ceremony was performed by the Rev. Sprengler of Thorp.

Mrs. Donald Marshall who sang "I Love You Truly" and "Sweeter As the Year Go By" was accompanied by Miss Gladys Bobb, cousin of the bride, who also played the wedding marches.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was beautifully attired in a gown of white chiffon over taffeta with a lace top. The gown was fashioned with satin buttons down the front to the waist with long pointed sleeves and a long train. Her long tulle veil edged in lace was held in place with a headdress of orange blossoms. She wore a gold locket, a gift of the groom. She carried a bouquet of gardenias, white roses, and carnations. She was attended by Mrs. Gertrude Rademacher, sister of the groom, who wore a gown of pink net over taffeta, and Miss Marjorie Vetterkind of Island Lake, sister of the bride, who wore pink silk. Both attendants wore a pink blusher and a crown of sweet peas. They each wore a plain gold locket and had identical corsages of pink carnations and white roses.

The groom wore a blue gabardine suit and a white rose boutonniere. He was attended by his brother, Vernon Baehr and Earl Vetterkind, uncle of the bride. They each wore a blue suit and a white carnation boutonniere.

Both the bride’s and the groom’s mothers wore shoulder corsages of mixed flowers.

A seven o’clock reception was held for the bridal party and immediate relatives at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jess Offord, uncle and aunt of the bride.

A shower and wedding dance was held that that evening at Mileaway Pavilion.

The groom is engaged in farming and they will reside at the home of his parents.

The young couple has the best wishes of a host of friends and relatives for a very happy and blissful married life.
