Gorsegner, Regina E. (31 MAY 1947)

At a two o’clock service in St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church at Reseburg (Clark Co., Wis.), Saturday, May 31, 1947, Miss Regina E. Gorsegner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Gorsegner of Thorp, exchanged wedding vows with Carl H. Broeking, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Broeking of Stanley. Rev. I. T. Droegemueller, pastor of the church, gave the address and Rev. Lloyd Goetz, cousin of the groom performed the double ring ceremony.

The bride was attired in a gown of ivory slipper satin and designed with a lace peplum and yoke and long sleeves coming to points over the wrists. Her full skirt ended in a long train. A lace covered cap held her full length veil of illusion and she wore a gold lavaliere jeweled with a red set, a gift from the groom. She carried a bouquet of white carnations and green and white ferns tied with a satin ribbon.

Miss Joyce Goetz, a cousin of the groom and Mrs. Thomas Davis, the bride’s only sister, were maid of honor and bridesmaid. Their frocks of white flowered ninon marquisette were styled like the bride’s. Matching picture hats with red velvet bows and streamers in the back completed their costumes and each wore a lovelier jeweled with red sets. A gift from the bride. They carried red carnations on white and green fern.

Attending the groom were Herman Doege of Chicago, cousin of the bride, and Thomas Davis. The groom and his attendants wore conventional suit and white carnation boutonnieres.

Mrs. I. T. Droegemueller was organist, who played the processional and recessional, and during the ceremony she accompanied Miss Fern Brandt, who sang "O Perfect Love."

After the ceremony a reception was held in the church parlors for about 300 guests. At seven o’clock that evening a wedding dinner was served the bridal party at Medford.

Pre-nuptial showers for the couple were tendered on May 14 by the Lutheran Choir, May 26 by friends and neighbors of the groom, and by the bride’s friends on May 27th.

The bride graduated from Thorp High School in 1944 and is employed in the office of Blue Moon Foods, Inc., at Thorp. Mr. Broeking was a 1940 graduate of the Stanley High School.

After a motor trip through southern Wisconsin, the couple will reside on the groom’s farm near Stanley.
