Gilbert, Ruth E. (27 JUN 1964)

The Rev. Milford Gilbert of Colby read the marriage service in which his daughter, Ruth Emma, became the bride of Fredric George Bruesewitz, Saturday, June 27, 1964. Vows were repeated by the daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. Gilbert and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred H. Bruesewitz of Colby in a 2 o'clock ceremony in the United Church of Christ before the altar adorned with vases of yellow and white carnations.

The bridal gown was floor length and fashioned of rosebud lace over satin. Beads and sequins decorated the scalloped neckline and a rhinestone tiara held her bouffant fingertip veil.

The yellow and white color theme was seen in her colonial bouquet of carnations and yellow roses and in the colonial bouquets of yellow carnations which the bridal aids carried as they preceded the bride down the aisle in daffodil yellow frocks.

Her attendants were Miss Kathy Vasseur of Winter, a friend; Mrs. Hebert Steinwogner of Unity, the groom's sister.

Philip Gilbert of Colby, a brother of the bride, was the best man, and Wilmer Bruesewitz of Stetsonville, a brother of the groom, was the groomsman.

Mrs. James Woldner of Sioux Falls, S.D., was the soloist and sang, "I Take Thee, Dear," and "God Gave Me You."

After the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents.

After a honeymoon trip to northern Wisconsin, they will make their home at Route 4, Marshfield. The groom is employed as a station attendant and his bride is a school teacher.
