Wedding vows were repeated December 29, 1965, at a 3:30 p.m. wedding ceremony in the Loyal Methodist Church, uniting in marriage Miss Carmella Rae Grambsch, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Grambsch of Loyal, and Charles E. Anderson of Hebron, Me., son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles M. Anderson of Somerville, Mass.


Performing the wedding ceremony was the Rev. Paul Doering. Mrs. Byron Zepplin played organ music as the bride entered the church with her father, who gave her in marriage. Two large candelabra, trimmed with fresh holly and pine, graced the altar.


The bride wore a floor-length gown of peau de soie. A bateau neckline and empire waistline was accented by small bows. Seed pearls trimmed the lace on the bodice and upper portion of the "A-line" skirt.  The back was completed with a detachable chapel train of peau de soie, edged with lace, which fell from the waist.  Her finger-tip illusion veil was secured to an open crown pill box of peau de soie with bow trim.  She wore a single strand of pearls, a gift of the groom, and carried a bouquet of red carnations and fresh holly.


Matron of honor was Mrs. Dale Clintsman of Loyal, a sister.  Bridesmaid was Mrs. Frank Calia, a sister of the groom, of Cleveland, O.  Flower girl was Mary Alison Grambsch, a sister, of Loyal.  The attendants wore floor length gowns of red velvet with bateau, and fashioned with empire waistlines, which were accented by red satin bands to which A-line skirts were attached. The backs were completed with large red satin bows and silk illusion veils. The gowns were made by the bride.  The attendants carried floral pieces of white carnations and fresh holly.


David Doering of Loyal carried the rings on a white brocaded pillow.
