Miss Beverly Gregory, daughter og Mr. and Mrs. Ted Gregory of Loyal, and Donald Beaver, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Beaver of rute one, were married at 8 a.m. Thursday, June 9, at St. Anthony’s Catholic church here. The Rev. Fr. Aloys  Zinthefer sang the nuptial mass.


A Victorian style gown of white Marquisette over taffeta was worn by the bride for the double ring ceremony. Tiny covered buttons extended down the front of the gown to the lace bustle at the waist. The fitted bodice had tapering sleeves, pointed at the wrists, and her plain skirt fell into a court train. Her lace-edged fingertip veil of illusion was caught to a tiara of seed pearls, and she carried a shower bouquet of red roses.


Mrs. Donald Cole, sister of the groom, was matron of honor, wearing a gown of yellow marquisette over taffeta. A boat neckline and lace-edged puffed sleeves fashioned the bodice, which was nipped at the waist with lace. Lace insertions were woven about the skirt, and she wore a yellow sweetheart bonnet of peach gladioli. She carried a heart-shaped bouquet of peach gladioli.



Miss Donna Gregory was her sister’s bridesmaid. She wore an aqua gown styled the same as that worn by the matron of honor. Her bouquet was also similar to that carried by Mrs. Cole.

Immediately after the ceremony a breakfast was served to the bridal party at the home of the bride’s parents, and in the afternoon a reception was held in the church auditorium. At 2 p.m. the wedding dinner was served to about 100 guests in the church auditorium. In the evening a buffet supper was served to relatives and friends at the home of the bride’s parents, after which a wedding dance was given at Walter’s pavilion, near Colby.
