Langfeldt, Janis #2 (11 NOV 1950)


The Trinity Lutheran Church was the setting on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 11, 1950, for the marriage of Miss Janis Langfeldt of Loyal, and Kenneth Vollrath, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Vollrath of Greenwood.  The Rev. J. C. Langholz officiated at the 3 o’clock ceremony before an altar decked with flowers, palms and candelabra.  Mr. Langfeldt presented his daughter in marriage.


Inserts of Chantilly lace which detailed the full skirt of the ivory colored satin gown worn by the bride, matched the lace yoke and stand up collar.  Lace also finished the long pointed sleeves and the fingertip veil.  Her bouquet of white mums, centered with an orchid, was tied with an ivory satin ribbon.


Shirred bodices, topped with net yokes, emphasized the tiered, hooped skirts of the formals worn by the bride’s attendants, Miss Elviera Vollrath, sister of the groom, as maid of honor, and Miss Vivian Langfeldt of Eau Claire, niece of the bride, as bridesmaid.  The former chose green satin, while Miss Langfeldt wore pink satin.


Their nosegay-type bouquets, composed of pink and deep lavender carnations surrounded by white mums, were tied with matching satin ribbons.


William Vollrath of Greenwood served as his brother’s best man, and Dale Vollrath was groomsman.  Gary Speich, a cousin of the groom, and Wayne Cain of Unity, a nephew of the bride, were ushers.


Mrs. Langfeldt attended the wedding of her daughter attired in a taupe crepe dress with matching accessories, while the groom’s mother selected a wine colored crepe dress.  Tea roses were tied in their corsages.


The newlyweds greeted guests at a reception in the church parlors after the ceremony.


Guests came from Gary, S.D., Duluth, Minn., Wausau, Steuben, Boyceville, Eau Claire, Plymouth, Thorp, Unity and Greenwood.


When the young couple left on a honeymoon in the southern part of the state, Mrs. Vollrath was wearing a navy blue suit with matching accessories, accented with an orchid corsage.


Before her marriage, Mrs. Vollrath, a 1949 graduate of the Loyal High School, was employed in the Thorp office of the Thorp Finance Corp., while her husband, a graduate of the Greenwood High School, is engaged in farming, following a short course at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.


The Loyal Tribune joins their many friends in wishing them a long and happy journey through life.
