Brill, Agnes Elizabeth (Marriage - 12 Aug. 1950)

Given in marriage by her father, Miss Agnes Elizabeth Brill, Colby, became the bride of Victor Anthony Bergs, Waukesha, in a double ring ceremony at 9:00 o’clock at St. Mary’s Catholic church, Colby, with the Rev. N. B. Beschta officiating.

For her wedding, the bride chose a gown of sheer marquisette over taffeta with long, fitted sleeves. The rounded neckline extended into a wide bertha collar forming the yoke which was edged with lace. The dress also featured a fitted bodice and a full skirt, edged in lace, which extended into a long train. Her finger tip veil of imported silk illusion was attached to a sweetheart shaped coronet decorated with pearlized orange blossoms. A bouquet of pink roses and white carnations completed her ensemble.

Miss Theresa Brill, sister of the bride, was the maid of honor. She wore a white frosted organza gown over a white taffeta slip, with a matching sweetheart shaped hat, and carried a bouquet of pink and white carnations tied with pink ribbons.

Miss Rita Brill, sister of the bride, and Miss Mary Sazama were bridesmaids. Miss Brill wore a gown of white frosted organza over a green taffeta slip with a matching hat, and Miss Sazama wore a white frosted organza gown over an orchid slip with a matching hat. Both carried bouquets of yellow carnations.

Robert Bergs was his brother’s best man. The groomsmen were Edward Brill, brother of the bride, and Wilfred Bergs, brother of the groom.

Alex Brill of Wausau, cousin of the bride, ushered for the wedding.

For her daughter’s wedding, Mrs. Brill chose a forest green dress, and the groom’s mother wore a Copenhagen blue dress. Each wore a corsage of pink and white carnations. A dinner was served in the gymnasium of St. Mary’s church, and later, a reception was also held there.

The bride is a graduate of the Colby High School. The groom, a graduate of DeForest Training at Chicago, is employed at the J. J. Korber Appliance Store, Waukesha.

When the couple left on their honeymoon trip to Niagara Falls, the bride was attired in a navy blue dress with white accessories. Her corsage was pink and white carnations. When they return they will live at Waukesha.
