Wesneski, Norma (02 NOV 1956)
Now at home in Loyal are Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Edward Miller. Their marriage was a Nov. 3 event, solemnized at 9 a.m. in St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, Loyal, by the Norbert E. King.
Before her marriage, the bride was Miss Norma Jane Wesneski, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Wesneski, Owen. The bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Matt Beaver, Colby.
Chosen by the bride as maid of honor was the bridegroom’s sister, Miss Betty Miller, Colby, while the bridegroom’s cousin, Miss Carol Elsinger, Loyal, was bridesmaid. Two other cousins, Judith Elsinger and Andrew Rueth, both of Loyal, were flower girl and ring bearer.
Gowned in a chapel-length dress of net and lace over satin, the bride carried a colonial bouquet of red roses and white mums.
A Queen Ann collar and long sleeves were bodice details, and the fullness of the skirt was gathered in at the waistline. A crown of rhinestones and seed pearls held the finger-tip veil.
Headpieces of net and rhinestones were worn by her adult aides to match their off-shoulder gowns of blue lace over satin, made with bouffant skirts. They wore jackets, and carried colonial bouquets of pink and white carnations.
Yellow net over satin fashioned the dress of the flower girl, who carried a nosegay of white and yellow carnations.
Men appearing in the wedding party included the bridegroom’s brothers, Norman Miller of Colby now of the U.S. Marines, and Arnold Miller, Colby, as best man and groomsman respectively. Ushering duties were performed by Arvid Lindgren of Owen, the bride’s brother-in-law, and Lawrence Rueth, cousin of the bridegroom, from Loyal.
Mothers of the bride and groom witnessed the wedding in dresses of navy and medium blue respectively, red roses and white carnations were pinned at the shoulder.
Mr. and Mrs. Beaver entertained the bridal party at their home during the wedding breakfast which followed the rites, and dinner was served at noon to the immediate families at the Owen Legion Hall. The hall was also the scene of the 1 to 4 p.m. reception, and the 4:30 p.m. supper, at which places were set for about 200.
The bride is a graduate of Owen High School, class of 1954, and her husband was graduated from Loyal High School. She has been employed at the A. H. Weinbreaner Co., and he has employment with Max Langfeldt and Sons.
