Hales, Nan Jean (16 FEB 1957)



Hales - Weihmuller Nuptials at Manawa


   The Methodist Church at Manawa was the scene of the 5:30 p.m. candle-light wedding Saturday, February 16, of Miss Nan Jean Hales and Walter N. Weihmuller. The wedding reception followed in the church parlors.


   Parents of the young couple are Mr. and Mrs. Myrle G. Hales, Manawa, and Mr. & Mrs. Adolph Weihmuller, Loyal. The bride was presented by her father for the double-ring marriage ceremony, at which the Rev. Krist Caune officiated.


   The bridal gown was designed with a fitted bodice of hand clipped rose point nylon tulle lace over ice blue taffeta, with a scoop neckline and long sleeves, pointed at the hand. Vertical bands of wide lace trimmed the bouffant skirt of nylon tulle.


   An edging of tiny pleating, seed pearls, and iridescent sequins trimmed her half-hat of nylon, tulle and lace. Her elbow length hand-rolled veil, was of imported illusion and she carried a cascade bouquet of Demure Pink roses & white carnations.


   The bride’s attendants, Mrs. Donald Halpin, sister of the bride from Merton, matron of honor, and Miss Julie Smith, Rhinelander, bridesmaid, were identically attired in ballerina-length gowns of blue crystalette, styled with fitted bodice, softly draped neckline, and tiny sleeves. Each wore a head-dress of bands of hair braid and nose-veils in matching color and each carried a star bouquet of white carnations.


   In a gown identically the same as the bride’s and carrying an identical bouquet, Mary Jo Hales served her sister as junior bridesmaid.


   The groom chose his brother, Fred Weihmuller of Waverly, Iowa, for his best man, and Milton Molle of Loyal for his groomsman. The ushers were Donald Halpin, Merton, the bride’s brother-in-law, and Robert Andre, Spencer, the groom’s brother-in-law.


   Mrs. Byron Zepplin was organist and Vern Dahlby sang, "The Lord’s Prayer" and "Because."


   Mrs. Hales viewed her daughter’s wedding in a champagne lace sheath dress. She wore a pink hat and matching accessories. The room’s mother wore a grey suit and hat, with matching accessories and each mother wore a pink corsage.


   The new Mr. and Mrs. Weihmuller both graduated from the Loyal High School, class of 1954. They will live in Eau Claire where the groom is a student at Eau Claire State College. The bride also attended the college for a year and a half.


   Guests at the wedding were from Hammond, Ind., Waverly, Iowa, Greenwood, Spencer, Unity, Marshfield, Owen, Medford, Eau Claire, Milwaukee, Merton, Manawa, Rhinelander and Loyal.


   Those from Loyal were Mrs. Adolph Weihmuller, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Hales, Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Kehrberg, Mr. and Mrs. Bud Bremer, Mr. and Mrs. Raphael Haas, George Weyhmiller, Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Trindal and daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Warner Berry, Dr. and Mrs. G. W.
