Fisher, Hulda (30 JUN 1943)

One of the prettiest weddings of the month was that of Adelbert Draves and Miss Hulda Fisher, both of Milwaukee, which took place at Salem’s Evangelical Lutheran church at Veefkind at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. June 30. The Rev. Lloyd Lambert officiated at the double ring ceremony.

The bride was lovely in a white gown of sheer rayon marquisette, made princess style with sweetheart neckline and lace yoke and girdle, and three rows of insertion to the end of the long train. She carried a shower bouquet of white roses. A fingertip veil. Held in place with a coronet of seed pearls, completed her costume.

The bride was attended by Mrs. Edwin Howe, sister of the groom, as matron of honor, who wore white rayon marquisette and carried pink roses, white carnations and snapdragons.

Miss Juanita of Milwaukee, niece of the groom and Miss Verna Fisher, also of Milwaukee, cousin of the bride, were bridesmaids. They were gowned in yellow and blue marquisette, respectively, each carrying a colonial bouquet of roses and carnations to march their dresses. Each wore a blusher veil of matching color.

The groom was attended by Rudy Wolter of Milwaukee, cousin of the bride, and Samuel Draves, brother of the groom.

Betty Jean Fisher, niece of the bride, dresses in pink organdy, scattered rose petals on the white altar carpet, while little Jon Fisher and Donna Lee Stevens carried the rings in Easter lilies.

Ross Stevens and Martin Fisher, brothers of the bride, were ushers.

Friends of the bride decorated the church with baskets of roses and garden flowers of pink and blue.

Mrs. Selma Dietz played Lohengrin’s wedding march and the church choir sang, "O Perfect Love."

The text for the sermon was Eph. 5:33 "Nevertheless let everyone of you in particular, so love his wife even as himself and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

The home was beautifully decorated in pink, blue, yellow and white streamers and garden flowers. Supper was served to about 75 guests. Miss Evelyn Wicker of Stratford, Mrs. Ruth Thompson of Milwaukee, Wilma Guetschow of Wisconsin Rapids and Arlene Mueller were table waitresses.

Guests included: Mrs. Anna Dawald of Bethany, Minn., mother of the groom; Mr. and Mrs. Rudy Wolter and sons, Walter Pipenhagen and Mr. and Mrs. Art Fisher and family of Milwaukee; Mrs. Vernilda Boiski and daughter, Rosalie of Beechwood; Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Fisher of Wisconsin Rapids; Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hildebrandt, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Fisher and family, Mr. and Mrs. John Mueller and family, Mr. and Mrs. Lowell Schultz, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Stevens and family, Albert and Selma Dietz, Mrs. Mary Woodrull, Rev. Lloyd Lambert and the latter’s mother.

On Sunday evening, friends and relatives gathered at the parish hall for a shower. Many beautiful gifts were received by the worthy couple. The evening was spent in visiting, and lunch was served.
