Bredesen, June Lynette (Marriage - 20 August 1959)


The Greenwood Mission Gospel Church was the scene Thursday evening of a candlelight service uniting in marriage Miss June Lynette Bredesen and Bernard Ferguson.  The Rev. Lawrence Oman performed the double ring ceremony in a setting of baskets of white gladioli and candelabra.  White bows and candelabra marked the pews.


Miss Bredesen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Bredesen, was given in marriage by her father.  For her wedding she wore a full-length white gown of embroidered silk, styled with a chapel train.  The gown had a very full hooped skirt and the fitted bodice was fashioned with a scalloped neckline.  Her fingertip veil was held in place by a pearl trimmed head piece.  She carried a bouquet of white roses with cascades of ivy and rose buds.


Mrs. Steve Carter of St. Paul, niece of the bride, was her attendant.  John Tucker of Chattanooga, Tenn., was best man for the son of Mr. and Mrs. Omer Ferguson of Lawrenceville, Ill.  Mrs. Carter was attired in a white nylon lace over pink taffeta in a ballerina length gown.  A lace jacket and velvet headpiece and veil completed her attire.  Her bouquet was a crescent bouquet of pink roses.


Diane Oman of Chippewa Falls was flower girl, and was preceded down the aisle by Malcolm Dunn, nephew of the bride, as ring bearer.


Guests were ushered by Michael and Tim Dunn, nephews of the bride.


Mrs. Don Warner presided at the organ, and Merrill Dunn sang, "God Gave Your to me," O Promise Me" and "Saviour Like a Shepherd Lead Us."


A reception followed the ceremony in Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church.


On their return from a wedding trip to Northern Wisconsin, Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson will reside in Chattanooga, Tenn., where the groom is attending Temple Bible School.  Mrs. Ferguson was graduated this summer from the Bible School in Chattanooga.
