Yellow gladioli were on the altar of St. Bernard’s Church, Thorp for the marriage of Miss Alfretta Baldeschwiler and James Danielewicz, Saturday, September 5th. Rev. Francis Brodman performed the 10 a.m. ceremony and St. Bernard’s senior choir sang the Nuptial Mass. A solo “Ave Maria” was sung by Lila Baldeschwiler.

Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Baldeschwiler, Thorp, and Mr. and Mrs. Steve Danielewicz, Thorp, are parents of the couple.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a bridal satin gown featuring Alencon lace appliques embroidered with pearls and sequins on the front bodice and skirt. The fitted bodice had a sweetheart neckline and long pointed sleeves. The skirt terminated into an elongated chapel train with a bow at the waist, which was bustled after the ceremony.

A fabric pillbox with lace appliques of all silk held her 4-tier English illusion veil and she carried a cascade of lilies.

Miss Ellen Baldeschwiler was her sister’s maid of honor, wearing a leaf green satin floor length sheath with lime lite trim accenting the cumber bund. The fitted bodice had a scoop neckline and elbow length sleeves. The back detachable train was lined in lime lite green satin. A satin pillbox was caught to a cascade of yellow glamelias.

John Lindquist, friend of the groom, was nest man and ushers were Eugene Oberle, cousin of the bride and Theron Pagel, uncle of the groom.

A dinner for 100 guests, given by the bride’s parents, was held at the Badger Inn, Stanley.

The bride, a graduate of Thorp High School, was a legal secretary for Atty. Frank Nikolay with Nikolay, Jensen and Scott. The groom is a graduate of Thorp High School and Barber College, Eau Claire, and is a barber for Curt Witte at Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin.

After a wedding trip to Mackinac Island and Niagara Falls, they will make their home at 203 S. Fourth St., Mount Horeb, Wis.
