Nimbar, Erma V. #3 (25 OCT 1947)

Nuptial vows were exchanged by Miss Erma V. Nimbar, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Nimbar, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), and Laverne W. Brown, son of Mrs. Hazel Brown, Greenwood, at a lovely church wedding ceremony performed at the Congregational Church, Owen. Rev. M. G. Glick read the matrimonial ceremony at two o’clock, Saturday afternoon, Oct. 25th, 1947.

The bride approached the altar of the church attractively gowned in a bridal choice of creamy white satin with a white illusion fingertip veil. The dress was cut with a sweetheart neckline trimmed in seeded pearls and rhinestones. She wore a single strand of pearls with matching earrings and carried a bouquet of cream colored roses and white mums tied with a yellow ribbon.

Attending her were: Mrs. Rex Palmer, matron of honor, and bridesmaids Mrs. Harold Kuehn and Mrs. Joe De Rouin. Mrs. Palmer wore a gold dress while the other two attendants wore dresses of deep teal blue. All wore single strand pearls and matching earrings given to them as gifts of the bride. They carried bouquets of roses and mums. Flower girls were Julia Ann Palmer and Margaret Fliehr, both of whom wore French organdy dresses over white satin slips. The dresses were set off with shadow embroidery work and each had a white flower headdress.
