Moon, Shirley (20 SEP 1947)

On Saturday, Sept. 20, 1947, Miss Shirley Moon of Milwaukee and Mr. Robert Hendricks of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) were united in marriage at St. Joseph’s Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Father Jerome Schulteis was the officiating priest.

The bride wore a princess style dress of nylon marquisette, fashioned with a long train. A traditional long veil with a Victoria style headdress of seeded pearls completed her attire. She carried a bouquet of white camellias and white roses. The bride was attended by her sister, Marilyn as maid of honor, wearing a dress of pink taffeta with a full net skirt. She wore a shoulder length veil gathered at the top with pink flowers, and carried a bouquet of pink camellias tied with blue ribbon. The two bridesmaids, Gerda Dreher and Rayleen Peters of Milwaukee, wore formals of blue taffeta and blue shoulder length veils. They also carried pink camellias tied with blue ribbons.

The groom was dressed in a light tan gabardine suit, and wore a white rose in his lapel.

The best man, Richard Wagner, and the two attendants, Wayne Krueger and Harry Moon, wore dark gray suits and boutonnieres of red roses.

Preceding the bride and groom after the ceremony was Carol Moon, a little flower girl dressed in a yellow taffeta dress, carrying pink camellias. The ring bearer, David Moon, was dressed in a short white suit and carried a white satin pillow.

Immediately after the ceremony a breakfast was given at the home of the bride’s aunt, Mrs. C. F. Grimm.

A supper was held at Gene’s Café and from there the bridal party proceeded to the Villard Gardens where a reception was held.

The bride’s mother and the groom’s mother could be recognized by the lovely service colored corsages of camellias.

After spending a two weeks’ honeymoon with the groom’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Theo. Hendricks of withee, they will return to their new home on 7th and Capitol Drive in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
