Capes, Joyce (11 DEC 1946)

At eleven thirty o’clock Wednesday morning, Dec. 11, 1946, Miss Joyce May Capes, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Capes, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Vernon Turner, son of Guy Turner, Owen, when the two exchanged nuptial vows at the Alliance Chapel, Owen. Rev. C. S. Matthews officiated at the wedding ceremony.

The bride’s gown was of white floor length slipper satin with white net and fingertip veil and a white beaded headband. She carried a lovely bridal bouquet of red roses, carnations and sweet peas. Her only jewelry was a gold locket, a gift of the groom.

Attending her as bridesmaid was her sister, Doris. Her gown was similar in design to that of the bride, but of blue taffeta.

Georgia Capes, another sister of the bride, dressed in rose satin, was flower girl, while Elmer Capes, brother of the bride, was ring bearer.

Emil Horner attended the bridegroom as best man. Each wore a pin stripe business suit.

Miss Mary Stuve, a close friend of the bride, played the music for the occasion. A cousin of the bride, Violet Otto, sang three selection during the ceremony, "Because," Oh Promise Me," and "I Love You Truly." Miss Arlene Arp completed the bridal group, serving as usherette.

At noon the bridal party and immediate relatives enjoyed a dinner served at the Cozy Corner Café. That evening they had a wedding dance at the Atwood Hall.

The couple are making their home on the groom’s farm located six and one-half miles south of Owen.
