Scheel, Wanda (Marriage - 17 Jan. 1955)  

The double ring ceremony was used at the wedding of Miss Wanda Scheel and Robert Hebert, Monday. The Rev. Thomas Burney read the service at 10:00 o’clock in the First Presbyterian church at Abbotsford. Mrs. J. F. Samson provided the nuptial music.

Seed pearls formed the heart shaped crown which secured her finger tip veil. Red roses, white pompons and stephanotis were combined in her colonial bouquet.

Their ballerina length gowns were made alike with full net ruffled skirts and shirred, strapless bodices. With them they wore net stoles and net hats with rhinestone trim. Pale orchid was the color for the matron of honor and ice blue for the bridesmaid. Their colonial bouquets were of white pompons and gladioli with net and ribbon streamers to match their dresses.
