Tews, Virginia (Marriage - 5 September 1953) 

Miss Virginia Tews, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Art Tews of Neillsville and Melvin Marg, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Marg, were married September 5, at St. John’s Lutheran Church.  The pastor, the Rev. Alfred Schewe, performed the double ring ceremony before an altar banked with cut flowers and with blue and white streamers at the rows of seats. 

The bride, on the arm of her father, walked down the aisle in a gown of tiered cascades of pleated tulle and Chantilly lace over satin skirt, with a chapel train.  Her fingertip veil was held in place by a small hat.  A white orchid surrounded by baby pink roses and white mums made up her bouquet.   
Miss Janice Tews served her sister as maid of honor.  Jacqueline Sorenson and Lorraine Rhodes were her bridesmaids, with Theresa Hagedorn as flower girl. The attendants all wore dresses and gauntlets designed alike in Wedgewood blue and carried bouquets of yellow roses, pink carnations and white mums.

Donald Marg, twin brother of the groom, served him as best man, with Irvin Marg and John Koss, Jr., acting as attendants.  Wilbert Kalsow and Louis Nemitz ushered.  Gordon Beyer, cousin of the bride, was the ring bearer. 

Wilfred Galstad of Neillsville, soloist, sang several selections. 

A wedding reception was held at St. Johns school for approximately 200 guests.  The school was tastefully decorated with cut flowers. 

The bride is a graduate of the local high school and was employed at the First National Bank in Neillsville prior to her marriage.  The groom is employed by the O & N Lumber Co. as field man. 

The newlyweds are spending two weeks on a western trip and will be at home to their friends and relatives after September 20 at 907 North Grand Avenue. 

Out of town guests attending the wedding were from Waukesha, Milwaukee, Madison, Watertown, Oshkosh, Appleton, Wisconsin Rapids, Marshfield, Rice Lake, Rosendale and Neshkoro.
