Hamm, Bernice (11 JUN 1949)

Bernice Hamm, daughter of Fred Hamm, route 2, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), exchanged marriage vows with Milford Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Smith, also of route 2, Owen, in a lovely ceremony solemnized at two o’clock Saturday, June 11th, at the Bethany (actually was called Zion) Reformed Church parsonage at Greenwood. The couple repeated the vows after the Rev. B. W. Fresenborg who officiated.

The bride was attractively dressed in a blue grey gabardine suit, wore a lovely pink hat with white accessories. Completing her attire was a shoulder corsage of pink and white carnations and lilies of the valley. Matron of honor was her sister-in-law, Mrs. Harry Hamm and bridesmaid, Mrs. L. Hierlmier, a sister of the groom. They also wore gabardine suits of blue and blue nylon hats and shoulder corsages of pink and white carnations.

Attending the grooms as best man was his brother Harold, and Lindy Hierlmier, a brother-in-law.

At four-thirty o’clock a supper was served at the home of the bride’s father to fifty-five guests. Adding to the beauty of the solemn occasion were lovely decorations of summer flowers. Following the supper the bride, in deep respect of her deceased mother, Mrs. Fred Hamm, place the bouquets on her grave in memory of her. Later that evening a dance was held for the couple at the Nightingale Ballroom, after which the newlyweds left on a nine day wedding trip through southern Wisconsin and to Waukegan and Chicago, Ill.

Upon their return from their trip the couple will make their home at the home of the bride’s father.
