Beaver Esther  (26 SEPT 1946)


In a beautiful early fall wedding at St. Anthony’s Catholic church here. Miss Esther Beaver, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Beaver of Loyal, became the bride of Henry Ott of Loyal, son of Mrs. George Keller of Neillsville, at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 26. The Rev. Fr. Aloys Zinthefer sang the nuptial high mass.


The bride chose for her wedding a gown of white satin, styled with a net overskirt and net train, sweetheart neckline and long sleeves pointed at the wrists. Her lace-edged fingertip veil was caught to a white beaded headdress. She carried a shower bouquet of deep pink roses encircling a large white rose, a white rosary and her mother’s white prayerbook. Her jewelry consisted of a gold heart-shaped locket, a gift of the groom, and pearl earrings.


The maid of honor, Miss Rosella Beaver of Auburndale, a cousin of the bride, was gowned in a white satin, featured with a lace top, while the bridesmaid, Miss Louise Ott of Neillsville, a sister of the groom, wore a gown of net over satin, also white. Both ladies wore shoulder length lace veils caught in wreaths of white roses, both wore wrist cordages of deep pink roses and both wore pearl earrings, gifts of the bride, and gold lockets.


Mrs. Beaver viewed her daughter’s wedding wearing a dress of gold colored crepe, while the groom’s mother wore a blue dress with black sequins. Both mothers wore corsages of pink carnations.


The bridegroom and his attendants, Gerald Beaver, a brother of the bride, as best man, and Earl Theisen, a friend of the bride and groom, as groomsman, all wore dark blue suite, with white carnation boutonnieres.


Altar servers were Anthony Beaver, a brother of the bride, James Helm, cousin of the bride, and Ronnie Davel and Thomas Brusky, friends of the bridal couple.


A reception was held at the home of the bride’s mother at 5 p.m. The house was decorated  with pink and white streamers, and two large white wedding bells centered two of the rooms. A three tiered wedding cake, baked by the bride’s mother, centered the bridal table. Covers were laid for 36 persons. A wedding dance was given at Merry Ol’Gardens, near Longwood, that evening.
