Miss Adell Marie Brehm, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elroy V. Brehm, and William H.

Miss Muriel Brehm of Wausau, sister of the bride, was maid of honor and Miss Corrine Bach of Chicago, Ill., a friend of the bride, was bridesmaid. The groom was attended by Robert Frome of Colby, the groom’s nephew, as best man, and Richard Wiersig of Colby, a friend of the groom. Ushers were Dennis Ewald and Glen Frome. Mrs. Howard Rannow accompanied herself as soloist and sang "The Wedding Prayer" and "The Lord’s Prayer."

The bride was attired in a floor-length gown of imported French chantilly lace over satin. The scalloped Sabrina neckline was accented by tiny seed pearls. This theme was also carried out in the open skirt which was edged with nylon pleating. The long sleeves tapered to points at the wrists. A pearl queen’s crown held her fingertip silk French illusion veil which was edged with nylon pleating. Her bouquet consisted of white gladiolus accented with pink tea roses and stephanotis which were tied to white streamers.

The maid of honor wore a ballerina-length dress, white damsette dotted nylon over blue taffeta, wide taffeta cummerbund ending in sash in back, Sabrina neckline in front and a V neckline in back, mitts and crown to match and short veil. The bridesmaid wore a similar dress only in yellow. Their bouquets consisted of yellow and white gladiolus and tiny blue pomps forming a circular bouquet and tied with blue and yellow streamers, respectively.

The bride’s mother wore a light green sheath dress with beige accessories. Her bouquet consisted of white carnations and pink roses. The groom’s mother wore a powder blue dress with white accessories. Her bouquet consisted of white carnations and yellow roses.

The flower bearer, Miss Mary Multerer, a cousin of the bride, wore a short white nylon dress with flower head band and carried a satin basket of blue and yellow daisies. Bobbie Barr, nephew of the groom, carried a satin heart-shaped pillow with rings.
