Kalepp, Alice (Marriage - 11 Aug. 1945)

Marriage vows were exchanged Saturday afternoon, between Miss Alice Kalepp, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Kalepp, and Cpl. Gilbert Kattre, of Fort Benning, Ga. The Rev. John Brandt read the marriage service at 2:00 o’clock in Christ Evangelical Lutheran church, before the altar decorated with white gladioli.

During the ceremony Melvin Boelke, accompanied by Mrs. Ray Franz, sang "Entreat Me Not to Leave Thee." Miss Inez Gust played the wedding marches.

The bride wore an entrained gown of white net over a satin, designed with a net yoke and satin bodice with a satin peplum. The long sleeves ended in points over the wrist. Her fingertip veil fell from a beaded tiara. She wore a strand of pearls and carried a bouquet of red roses and white carnations showered with sweet peas.

Mrs. Norman Kalepp, sister-in-law of the bride, of Bristow, Indiana, was matron of honor. Miss Lenore Barry, of Colby, was bridesmaid. A frock of pale pink marquisette over satin was worn by the matron of honor and yellow net over satin with a satin bodice was worn by Miss Berry. Both attendants wore matching veils, caught to a floral head dress. White elbow length gloves, rhinestone bracelets, their gift from the bride, and wrist corsages of pink carnations and sweet peas completed their ensemble.

Lester Kattre, Chippewa Falls, was best man and Charles Brown, Loyal, was usher.

The bride’s mother wore an afternoon dress of navy blue with navy hat and other accessories in white. Mrs. Heintz, the groom’s mother, wore a blue flowered dress with white accessories. Both mothers wore a shoulder corsage of roses and sweet peas.

At 5:30 a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents. Under a canopy of crepe streamers in white, pink and yellow, the wedding supper was served to approximately 60 guests. In the evening a dance was held at Wiedenhoeft’s park.

Among the relatives from away at the wedding were: Ed Kattre and Melvin Wentworth, Plymouth; Mr. and Mrs. Lester Kattre, Chippewa Falls; Mr. and Mrs. Max Heintz, Colby; Mr. and Mrs. A. Sauter, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Sauter, and Mr. and Mrs. August Sauter, Dorchester; Mr. and Mrs. Victor Marcotte and Mr. and Mrs. George Kavino, Phillips; Mr. and Mrs. William Kuehl, Marshfield; and Mr. and Mrs. M. C. Prine, Ray Knight and Mrs. Vitonis, Colby, Wis.

Cpl. Kattre, now stationed at Ft. Benning, has been in the service almost four years, having spent a year and a half in the Aleutian Islands.
