On Sunday afternoon, June 19th at 3:30 to the beats of Mendelssohn’s Wedding March, Miss Vera Mae Ries and Mr. Howard Evans and their attendants advanced to a rose bower in the home of the bride’s parents and there exchanged marriage vows. The Rev. F. A. Rier, pastor of the Lutheran church of Waupaca and former pastor of the bride, officiated at the double ring ceremony. Mrs Rier played the wedding march.

The bride, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Ries, wore a gown of white lace over satin and carried a bouquet of swansonia and sweet peas and a silk lace handkerchief which her mother carried at her wedding. In her hair she wore three white roses.
