Miss Hilda Henrietta Mueller daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Mueller, Albangassie, Germany, exchanged nuptial vows with Ralph Loren Reas son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Reas, Saturday afternoon, July 23, at 3:30 o’clock in the Mellen Union Church.

The Rev. O. R. Thome performed the ceremony, Mrs. Benjamin Hochstettler, sister of the groom, was matron of honor and Juanita Reas, sister of the groom, and Margie Braun cousin of the groom, were the bridesmaids. Earl Jr., served his brother as best man and Wallace Markrstead and Benjamin Hochstettler were ushers.

The bride chose for her wedding a gown of white crepe faille fashioned with fitted bodice, long fitted sleeves and three tiered skirt edged in lace ending in a court train. Her fingertip veil was held in place by a cornet of seed pearls and she carried a bouquet of yellow and white roses. Mrs. Hochstettler wore a gown of pastel pink crepe and a colonial bouquet of pink and white roses. Miss Reas and Miss Braun wore matching gowns of orchid and pastel blue and carried colonial bouquets of pink roses. Both wore should veils of white flower bandeaus.
