A very pretty wedding was solemnized at St. Hedwig’s Church at ten o’clock Saturday morning, May 3, 1947, when Miss Dawn Swim, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harley Swim Sr. of the Town of Taft, became the bride of Mr. Joseph Adam Waichulis of the Town of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.).

The bride was beautifully attired in a gown of white satin and marquisette with a veil and train to match. She wore a gold locket, a gift of the groom. Her bridal bouquet was of white carnations and sweet peas. The groom wore a black suit and white carnation boutonniere.

The couple was attended by Ellery Swim, brother of the bride, acting as best man, wearing a grey suit. Miss Kathryn Navarre as first bridesmaid, was attired in aqua blue satin.
