Wichman, Nila (Marriage - 1952)

Miss Nila Wichman, daughter of Mrs. Anna Wichman, 1505 Below Blvd., became the bride of Harold Jewett, 108 S. Maple St., son of Mrs. Otto Braun, Colby, and Clyde Jewett, Julesberg, Colo., during a candlelight service performed at 7 o’clock Saturday evening in the Immanuel Lutheran Church. The Rev. G. M. Krueger officiated at the double-ring ceremony.

Presented in marriage by her brother, Vernon Wichman, Manitowoc, the bride selected a gown of white nylon tulle appliquéd with Chantilly lace and fashioned with a fitted lace bodice, a nylon tulle yoke, and lace sleeves that tapered to points over the wrists. Two tiers of Chantilly lace decorated the beautiful satin skirt which extended into a long train. Her finger-tip veil of imported illusion net bordered with lace was secured to a close-fitting cap trimmed with seed pearls and satin trimming. She carried a cascade arrangement of tiny red roses inserted into the throats of white gladioli, sprays of stephanotis, and centered with red roses. From it extended streamers caught with rose buds.

Mrs. DeVere Primeau, Long Beach, Calif., a sister of the bride, in her role as matron of honor, and Mrs. Elmer Jewett, Racine, the groom’s sister-in-law, as bridesmaid, wore identically styled gowns of nylon tulle and net, featuring net yokes and fitted bodices of Chantilly lace which extended into peplums over bouffant skirts, in shades of heavenly blue and maise, respectively. Completing their costumes were matching lace trimmed bonnets and gauntlets. Each carried a bouquet of yellow and blue carnations and white gladioli trimmed with matching ribbons.

Attending the groom as best man was his brother, Elmer Jewett, Racine, and as groomsman, DeVere Primeau, Long Beach, Calif., a brother-in-law of the bride. Ushers for their sister’s wedding were LeRoy Wichman, Waupun, and Carl Wichman, Wisconsin Rapids.

During the ceremony a solo, “The Lord’s Prayer,” was presented by Miss Elnora Roland. The wedding marches were played by George Pingel.

Mrs. Wichman viewed her daughter’s wedding in a Copenhagen blue dress with beige accessories and the groom’s mother was present wearing a pebble green dress accented with black accessories. Corsages of yellow carnations completed their ensembles.

A reception was held at the home of the bride’s mother, where the newlyweds greeted many relatives and friends. When the young couple left on their wedding trip which included New York and other points in the East, the bride was wearing a navy and white dress with navy accessories, accented with a corsage taken from the center of her bridal bouquet.

The bride, a graduate of the Marshfield Senior High School, is employed as bookkeeper at Roddis Plywood Corp. Her husband, a graduate of the Unity High School, is employed as a telegrapher for the Soo Line Railroad.

Guests were present at the wedding from Manitowoc, Minocqua, Menasha, Wisconsin Rapids, Milwaukee, Colby, Reedsburg, Waupun, Chicago, and Ingleside, Ill.
