Redford Free Methodist Church, Detroit, Mich., was the scene of the 7:30 p.m. ceremony, June 18, 1955, when Miss Julie Ann Larson, Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.) , became the bride of Earl Ross Schamehorn, Detroit, Mich.


The Rev. E.A. Habbecker performed the nuptial rites for the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.E. Larson, Loyal, and the son of Mrs. O.C. Schamehorn, Detroit, Mich.


Basket arrangements of gladioli, Peonies, and stocks decorated the church.


The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a waltz length gown of ivory crystalette with full skirt, fitted bodice, and bolero jacket.  Her elbow length veil was caught to a matching crystalette cap and she carried a colonial bouquet of Rubrum lilies.


Serving her sister as maid of honor, Miss Kay Larson of Eau Claire wore a waltz length gown of lime green crystalette with matching cap, and carried a colonial bouquet of yellow daisies.


The groom chose his friend, John Hendricks of Gerry, N.Y., for his best man.


Ushering duties were performed by Richard C. Larson Jr., Dexter, Mich., brother of the bride, and Ernest Schamehorn, Cleveland, Ohio, brother of the groom.
