Nielsen, Virginia Mae #2 (25 AUG 1946)

A beautiful wedding ceremony was solemnized at the Daniels Lutheran Church in Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), Sunday afternoon, Aug. 25, 1946, when Virginia Mae Nielsen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Nielsen of Withee, became the bride of Wallace R. Lindow, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Lindow of Granton. The Rev. L. C. Bundgaard officiated in the double ring ceremony.

Mrs. Walter Heideman played organ music preceding the ceremony, and accompanied Mrs. A. B. Kuhlman, aunt of the bride of Lake Bluff, Ill., who sang "Because" and "The Twenty-Third Psalm."

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of traditional white satin with French lace inserts, a train, and long white fingerless gloves. Her lace-trimmed fingertip veil was held by a coronet of orange blossoms. Her three-strand pearls were a gift of the groom. She carried a bouquet of red and white roses and white gladiolas with streamers of orange blossoms.

Miss Jean Crosson, cousin of the bride, as maid of honor, wore a dress of light green net and carried a bouquet of peach gladiolas. Mrs. Gordon Gehrt and Miss Mary Nielsen, sisters of the bride, and Miss June Lindow, sister of the groom, as bridesmaids, wore identical dresses of yellow sheer and net and wore wrist corsages of white gladiolas and red roses. Each of the attendants wore a string of pearls, a gift of the bride.

The groom was dressed in a navy blue pin-stripe suit. Attending him was Lawrence Behling as best man. Gordon Gehrt, Merlin Lindow, the groom’s brother, and Billy Crosson, the brides cousins acted as ushers. They were attired in conventional dark suits and wore white rose boutonnieres.

The bride’s mother wore a wine colored velvet dress and the groom’s mother wore a black crepe dress, each wearing a corsage of roses and gladiolas.

Following the wedding a reception was held in the Parish Hall for 125 relatives and friends of the bride and groom. The church and the hall were beautifully decorated with masses of garden flowers. The unusually pretty arrangements were done by Mrs. Karen Crosson and Mrs. A. B. Kuhlman, aunts of the bride. During the reception Miss Kay Kuhlman, cousin of the bride, of Lake Bluff, played the piano selections, Chopin’s "Fantasie Impromptu: and "Nocturne."

Mr. and Mrs. Richard Nielsen held open house at their home in the evening for out of town guests. A dance was given that night at Merry Ol’ Gardens. Afterward the newlyweds left for a motor trip to Niagara Falls and other parts in the east. Upon their return they will be at home to friends on their farm near Granton.
