Miss Betty Jean Koerner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar C. Koerner, of Dorchester, became the bride of Carl Robert Bloom, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bloom, Dorchester, Saturday afternoon, July 9. The ceremony was performed at 2:30 at the parsonage of the Evangelical and Reformed church, Colby, in the presence of the immediate families, with the Rev. Franz Puhlman as officiating minister.

The bride wore a gown of white satin design with long, tapered sleeves, self trim buttons down the back and a long train. Seed pearls trimmed the neck and also the head piece which held her finger tip veil. She carried a bouquet of tea roses and gladioli.

Miss Evelyn Uhlig, cousin of the bride, was maid of honor and Miss Janet Uhlig was the bridesmaid. They wore Dutch bonnets to match their frocks of Nile green and orchid taffeta made with a hoop skirt. Rhinestone necklaces and bracelets, gifts from the bride, and colonial bouquets of carnations and sweet peas, completed their ensembles.
