When the newly-weds, Mr. and Mrs. Robert W. Herdrich, return from their honeymoon in Northern Wisconsin, they will make their home in Owen, where Mr. Herdrich is employed by the Griebnow Company.


Mrs. Herdrich, the former Dorothy Capelle, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Capelle, became the bride of Robert W. Herdrich, son of Mr. and Mrs. Reno Herdrich, at a marriage service performed by the Rev. E. E. Aalto in Trinity Lutheran Church of Loyal Friday afternoon, June 25.


The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, chose for her wedding a waltz-length Chantilly lace-over-satin gown, with a Peter Pan collar and long pointed sleeves.  Her finger tip veil was edged with pearls, and she carried a bouquet centered with pink roses which were surrounded with Lilies of the Valley.
