Wiese, Esther Marcella (Marriage - 3 Sept. 1940)

Miss Esther Marcella Wiese, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Wiese and Erwin William Wunsch, son of Mrs. Valentine Wunsch, exchanged marriage vows at a double ring ceremony in St. Bernard’s Catholic church, Tuesday morning, at nine o’clock. The Rev. C. D. Brady read the nuptial high mass.

Music was furnished by the St. Bernard’s choir. Mrs. Clarence Dolan sang "Ave Maria" at the offertory.

The bride who was given in marriage by her father wore a gown of white net, lace trimmed, with a train. Her long veil was held in place with a seed pearl tiara. She wore a matching seed pearl necklace and carried a bouquet of pink and white asters tied with a large white bow.

The bride’s attendants all wore gowns which reached the floor, white slippers, wrist corsages of asters and sweet peas and natural flowers in their hair.

Miss Margaret Wiese, in coral moiré taffeta, attended her sister as maid of honor. Two sisters of the groom from Milwaukee, Miss Marcella Wunsch in aqua and Miss Irene Wunsch in powder blue attended as bridesmaids.

Miss Valerie Lucas, Milwaukee, niece of the bride, was flower girl. She wore a white taffeta frock which reached the floor and a wreath and veil. Her basket of gladioli was tied with streamers of white coral, aqua and blue.

Galen Sterzinger in a formal satin suit of white trousers and black coat carried the two rings on a satin pillow.

The groom was attended by his brother, Arnold, of Medford as best man, and also by George Lewandowski, of Goodrich, and Francis Wiese.

Following the church ceremony a breakfast to the bridal party was served at the home of Mrs. Louis Heisler. Reception was held at the home of the bride’s brother and sister-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Francis Wiese. Dinner and supper were served to about 300 guests.

The home was decorated in streamers of white, coral, aqua and blue, fastened at the center by a wedding bell. The cakes for the bride and her attendants and cut flowers were used in the table decorations.

In the evening a wedding dance was held at Mathey’s hall, east of Medford.
