Zelm, Florence (20 FEB 1954)


In the presence of immediate friends and families, Alvin Mittelstedt, Deerfield, repeated marriage vows with Mrs. Florence Zelm of Withee (Clark Co.), Wis. on Saturday, Feb. 20th, 1954.  The double ring ceremony was performed by Rev. Walter Schedler at four o’clock in St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church.  Baskets of pink carnations stood on eight side of the altar making a beautiful setting for the ceremony.


Attending the bride and groom were Mr. Mittelstedt’s brother and sister-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Mittelstedt of Milwaukee.


The bride appeared in a spring dress maker suit of aqua accented by navy blue and pink accessories.  Her corsage was made up of baby pink rosebuds and lilies of the valley.  As her attendant, Mrs. Mittelstedt wore a suit similar to the bride’s with an identical corsage.
