Schaefer, Rowene (Marriage - 5 July 1952) 

Miss Rowene Schaefer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles H. Schaefer, became the bride of James Steffen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Vern Steffen, Saturday morning, July 5, at St. Bernard’s Catholic church. Vows were exchanged in a double ring ceremony before the 9:00 o’clock nuptial mass with the Rev. Raymond Schulz officiating.  

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a ballerina length gown of Chantilly lace over satin. It was designed with ling sleeves ending in points over the wrist and a sheer nylon yoke outlined with pleated sheer ruffling. Her lace edged veil of finger tip length was fastened to a tiara of pearlized orange blossoms. She carried a white colonial bouquet of carnations and stephanotis, centered with a colored lip orchid and tied with wide satin ribbon. With her bouquet she carried a crystal rosary. 

Attending her was Mrs. Richard Steffen, sister-in-law of the groom, as matron of honor, and Mrs. Eugene Lindau, her sister, as bridesmaid. They were gowned alike in strapless dresses of blue net over taffeta, with wide lace hemline and lace jackets. Matching, braided head dresses and opera pumps completed their ensembles. Their colonial bouquets, tied with multi-colored ribbons, were made with centers of yellow carnations, surrounded by white baby mums and stephanotis. 

Miss Mary De Noble, cousin of the groom, as flower girl, wore a yellow dotted marquisette ballerina frock and white ballerina slippers. Her headband was of white and yellow pompons and she carried a basket of the same flowers, interspersed with blue tulle. 

David Lindau, nephew of the bride, carried a heart shaped white moiré pillow to which the two rings were tied with blue and yellow ribbons. He wore a white dinner jacket and dark trousers, matching those of the men in the bridal party. 

Attending the groom as best man was his brother, Richard, and the bride’s brother, Charles Schaefer. 

William Steffen, brother of the groom, and Eugene Lindau, brother-in-law of the bride, were acting ushers.
