Neuhaus, Helen Elizabeth (Marriage - 10 June 1952)  

Miss Helen Elizabeth Neuhaus, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Neuhaus, Elkhart Lake, and Reinhard Ulrich, Colby, son of the Rev. and Mrs. Karl Ulrich, Treysa, Germany, repeated marriage vows during a nuptial service performed by the Rev. F. P. Puhlmann, assisted by Rev. W. Koehler, at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Bethel Evangelical and Reformed church, Elkhart Lake.  

The bride approached the altar attired in a white tulle-over-taffeta gown with fitted lace bodice. Her ensemble was completed with a finger tip veil attached to a coronet of pearls. She carried a corsage of pastel-colored carnations and white roses on a white Bible. 

Miss Lois Mae Just, Chilton, wearing a light blue tulle-over-taffeta ballerina-length dress with lace bodice, served as maid of honor. Miss Mae Henschel, Kiel, bridesmaid, wore a dress of the same color and identically styled to the maid of honor’s. The junior bridesmaid, Miss Marie Neuhaus, sister of the bride, wore a blue taffeta formal with scalloped yoke edged with lace. Yellow, pink and blue flowers formed the bouquets of the bridal attendants. 

The groom’s attendants were Lloyd Weber, Batesville, Ind., serving as best man and Harold Neuhaus, Elkhart Lake, brother of the bride, filling the role of groomsman. 

Carrying a basket of sweet peas and attired in a yellow taffeta frock similar to the junior bridesmaid’s, Arlene Neuhaus served as flower girl.  

Brothers of the bride, Arno, Roland, Elmer, and Armin ushered. 

A supper for 100 guests was held at the church parlors. 

Mrs. Neuhaus attended her daughter’s wedding in an aqua crepe afternoon dress with white accessories. Mrs. Puhlmann, foster mother of the groom, wore a powder blue gown with a bolero jacket. Corsages of yellow, pink and blue carnations accented the ensembles of the mothers. 

The bride attended Mission House College at Plymouth. The groom, who is a protégé of the Rev. and Mrs. Puhlmann, pastor of the First Evangelical and Reformed church, Colby, is a senior at Mission House Seminary, Plymouth. The Rev. Puhlmann has sponsored his education and in the United States the past three and one-half years.  

During the remainder of the summer, the groom will be supply pastor at St. Paul’s Evangelical and Reformed church at Ellsworth. After Sept. 1, the newlyweds will reside in Sheboygan.
