Herdrich, Margaret (20 MAY 1950)


Miss Margaret Herdrich, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Reno Herdrich, and Leonard Kollmansberger, son of Robert Kollmansberger, repeated their nuptial vows before the Rev. John C. Langholz in a double ring ceremony performed at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 20, 1950, in the Trinity Lutheran Church here.


During the ceremony Mrs. Emma Rottjer and Mrs. Romaine Rossow sang "Always," "Live Closer to Jesus," and "Wedding Prayer," accompanied by Mrs. Jerry Will.


For her wedding day the bride chose a gown of slipper  satin, featuring a drop-shoulder collar, snug fitting bodice and a hoop skirt falling into a long train with lace insets.  A lace-edged fingertip veil and a bridal bouquet of yellow roses and white carnations completed her ensemble.  She carried out the tradition of having something old by wearing a watch which was a graduation gift, and something new was her rhinestone earring and necklace set, a gift of the groom.  The something borrowed and something blue was fulfilled by the borrowed white handkerchief with blue ribbons on it which she carried.


Miss Myra Kollmansberger, sister of the groom, was maid of honor.  She was dressed in a gown of lilac taffeta, which featured an off-the-shoulder collar and hoop skirt.  She carried a bouquet of yellow carnations.


Mrs. Harold Dahl, a sister of the bride, and Miss Loren Gardner, as bridesmaids, wore gowns of yellow and Nile green, respectively, which were styled identically to that of the maid of honor.  They carried bouquets of green and lilac carnations.


Miss Veryl Herdrich, sister of the bride, acted as junior bridesmaid and was attired in a gown of blue satin with a net overskirt.  She carried a bouquet of carnations and daffodils, which were tied with a white ribbon.  Miss Sharon Kollmansberger, a niece of the groom, was the flower girl.  She wore a dress of white slipper satin, styled like the bride’s, and scattered rose petals down the aisle.  Douglas Sandstrom of Minneapolis, a cousin of the groom, was the ring bearer and carried the rings on a heart shaped satin pillow.


Attending the groom were Harold Herdrich, brother of the bride, as best man, and Harold Dahl and Harold Kollmansberger, brother of the groom, as groomsmen.  Both the groom and his attendants were attired in suits of brown.  Ushers were Robert Herdrich, brother of the bride, and Robert Kollmansberger Jr., brother of the groom.


After the ceremony, a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents, and supper was served to 100 guests in the church parlors.  Both the Herdrich home and the church parlors were attractively decorated in wedding colors and white wedding bells.  In the evening a dance was held at the Eagles Hall in Marshfield.


The bride, a graduate of the Loyal High School with the class of 1946, is employed as bookkeeper at the John Wuethrich Creamery Co., and the groom is employed as a mechanic at Zupanc Motors.


After their return from a wedding trip to the west coast, the couple will be at home in Loyal to their friends and relatives.
