Mandel, Juliane Ann (Marriage - 9 Nov. 1957)

Miss Juliane Ann Mandel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Mandel of Unity, and Melvin D. Gilbertson of Marshfield, son of Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Gilbertson of Medford, were united in marriage Saturday afternoon in the Trinity Lutheran church in Unity with Rev. Roy Gustafson officiating. Miss Ruth Neitzel was maid of honor and Misses Joanne Jost, Janice Tennis and Mildred Kroll were bridesmaids. The latter is from Clintonville and the others are residents of Unity, Wis. Charles Neitzel of Unity was best man and Leon Jost of Unity, Paul Dins of Colby and Elmer Kroll of Clintonville were groomsmen.

Rosepoint lace over satin formed the bride’s floor-length gown. Iridescent sequins accented the scoop neckline of the fitted bodice and sequins were scattered over the bouffant skirt. From a crown of apple blossoms, a veil of silk illusion cascaded to the fingertips. Centering the cascade arrangement were three white orchids, surrounded by stephanotis.

Redwood and capicine were the colors of the attendant’s dresses, styled identically with three-quarter length sleeves, pleated cummerbunds, ending in bows and streamers at the back, and fully gathered skirts. Face veils of redwood net completed the crowns which were their headpieces. Flowers for the quartet were nosegays of bronze pompoms nestled in brown net.

Mrs. Mandel was attired in a blue velvet dress and matching feather hat, while a black and white print was chosen by Mrs. Gilbertson. Their respective corsages were of cymbidium orchids and garnet roses combined with white carnations.

The bride’s colors of white and bronze were repeated in the church decorations. Ushers were Jerome Tennis and Robert Leisinger.

A reception was held in the Unity Memorial Hall where guests enjoyed dancing in the evening. Supper was served in the church hall.

Guests were from Marshfield, Spencer, Riplinger, Loyal, Dorchester, Abbotsford, Stetsonville, Tomah, Medford, Stevens Point, Curtiss, Taylor, Clintonville, Colby and Unity, Wis.

The bride is a graduate of Unity High School and the Accredited School of Beauty Culture in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She has been employed at Beesler’s Beauty Salon, Marshfield.

The couple will make their home in Marshfield where the groom is a municipal employee.
