Creg, Vivian #2 (2 SEP 1950)

The Rev. Myron Glick was officiating clergyman when Miss Vivian Creg, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Creg, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Raymond Wry, Milwaukee, son of Mr. and Mrs. Al Wry of Stanley, in a ceremony performed at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 2, 1950, at the First Congregational Church, Owen.

Preceding the bride to the altar were Mrs. Richard Miclozjk, Milwaukee, cousin of the bride, as matron of honor, and Mrs. Ernest Raether, Milwaukee, sister of the bridegroom, as bridesmaid. They wore identical dresses of satin trimmed with Chantilly lace. Matching picture hats and gauntlets completed their ensembles. The matron of honor wore ashes of rose, while the bridesmaid was attired in aqua.

For the occasion the bride wore a white Chantilly lace covered satin entrained gown featuring sleeves that came to points over the wrists. Her fingertip veil of fine imported illusion net, edged with wide lace, cascaded from a rhinestone studded tiara.

A white orchid surround by white roses and stephanotis, ending in streamers with tiny flowers attached, formed her shower bouquets. She wore a rhinestone necklace with matching earrings, a gift of the bridegroom.

Mr. Creg escorted his daughter to the altar. Russell Creg, brother of the bride, attended the groom as best man, and Gordon Flora, Milwaukee, as groomsman. Janice Creg, sister of the bride, and Barbara Bowen, both of Owen, wearing rayon taffeta and lace formals of green and orchid, served as usherettes.

The bride’s mother wore a spice brown satin dress with black and white accessories. The bridegroom’s mother attended the ceremony in a navy blue dress with white accessories. Both wore rose corsages.

The bride is a graduate of Owen High School, and the groom of the Stanley schools.

Following the ceremony the newlyweds greeted a hundred relatives and friends at a reception in the church parlors. In the evening a dance was held at Merry Ol’ Gardens, Longwood. Upon their return from a honeymoon in northern Wisconsin the couple will be at home at 721 S. 31st St., Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Out of town guests at the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Don Wry, Lyons, N.Y.; Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Karaba and daughter Darlene, Mr. Ernest Raether and daughter Geraldine, Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Lange, Mr. and Mrs. R. Kling and daughters Janet and Carol, Mrs. W. Klak, Mr. and Mrs. E. Flora and Mr. R. Miclozjk, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Also relatives and friends from Spencer, Gilman, Greenwood, Stanley, Withee, Hannibal and Thorp.
