Sersch, Marcella E. (15 AUG 1953)


Marriage vows were exchanged Saturday afternoon, Aug. 15, 1953, at 2 o’clock at Trinity Lutheran Church, Spencer, before the Rev. Randolph Mueller, by Miss Marcella Elaine Sersch, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Sersch, route 2, Spencer, and Guy Weideman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Weidman, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.).


The bridal gown was fashioned of heavy white satin and yards of wide Alencon lace.  The shirred lace outlined the deep net yoke and waistline and also was used in trimming the full skirt which extended into a train.  The bodice closed in back with satin covered buttons and had long sleeves extending to point at the wrists.


The veil of illusion had a tiny rolled hem and was attached to a satin bonnet, the heart shaped front of which was decorated with twisted strands of miniature pearls.


For her bouquet the bride carried deep red roses centered with white carnations and interspersed with green ivy.


The three bridal attendants wore identical floor length gowns of blue satin and matching wreath headdresses and also carried similar bouquets.  Miss Lois Neitzel, Marshfield, was the maid of honor, and her sister, Miss Betty Neitzel, Marshfield, and the bride cousin, Miss Shirley Sersch, Ridgeway, were the bridesmaids.


The best man was Larry Gerke, Owen, and two cousins of the bride, Gerald Sersch, Ridgeway, and Armin Foth, Spencer, serve d as groomsmen.


The bride’s mother was attired in a grey suit with red accessories and the groom’s mother wore a grey frock with black accessories.  Each had a corsage of pink and white roses.


At 5 o’clock a wedding dinner and reception were held at the church parlors and that evening a wedding dance took place at the Country Ballroom.


When the new Mrs. Weideman left with her husband on a week’s wedding trip to Manitowish, she was wearing a navy blue suit.  Until spring, the newlyweds plan to make their home with the Paul Serschs at Spencer.  Mrs. Weideman is a trucker for William Weinberger of Withee.
