Miller, Florence (Marriage - 8 June 1946)

Mr. and Mrs. Merlin Schuette will return Sunday from a wedding trip to Kaukauna, Rhine Center, Manitowoc, and Cleveland, and will be at home to friends on their farm near Unity, Wis.

Their wedding was a lovely church ceremony which took place on Saturday, June 8, in the South Green Grove Lutheran church.

The bride, the daughter of Mrs. Alvina Miller, of Abbotsford, was given in marriage by her uncle, Col. G. E. Ledfors, of Langley Field, Va. to Melvin Schuette, son of Mr. and Mrs. Hugo Schuette, of Unity, Wis. The Rev. M. C. Goetsch read the double ring service at 1:30 in the presence of many relatives and friends.

Lloyd Smith, of Colby, sang "I Love You Truly" and "Always."

The bride wore a gown of white ninon, fashioned with a snug fitting bodice with a square neckline and long sleeves ending in points over the hands. The long skirt ended in a train. Her long, lace bordered veil fell from a beaded tiara. She carried a shower bouquet of regal lilies and roses. The double strand of pearls which she wore was a gift of the bride groom.

Miss Arlene Schuette, a sister of the groom, was maid of honor. She wore a frock of blue ninon, the only color in an otherwise all white wedding, designed with short sleeves, basque bodice buttoned to the waist, and a ballerina skirt.

The Misses Irene Schuette, cousin of the groom, and Jeanette Strade, both of Curtiss, were bridesmaids and were gowned alike in white, styled like that of the maid of honor. All three wore matching shoulder length veils and carried Colonial bouquets in pastel shades.

Miss Carol Jean Kickbusch, of Boyd, cousin of the groom, dressed in white lace and carrying a Colonial bouquet, was flower girl. Adolph Becherer, a nephew of the bride, carried the rings in a calla lily.

Arnold Miller, Elkhart Lake, cousin of the bride, was the best man, and Edward Miller, Colby, and Orville Schuette, Unity, brother of the groom, were uahers.

For her daughter’s wedding, Mrs. Miller wore an aqua ensemble, trimmed in white and the groom’s mother wore an old rose dress. Both mothers had identical corsages of mixed flowers.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s mother, where covers were laid for 45 guests. The home was decorated with garden flowers and pink, *** Note: The remainder of this article was missing.
