Westaby, Bernadine (18 JUL 1964)

Miss Bernadine H. Westaby, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Westaby, Stanley, became the bride of Augustine J. Weisfeld, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Weisfeld, Chilton on Saturday, July 18 at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Gilman. Rev. John Speerstra performed the two o’clock double ring ceremony. “O Perfect Love” and the “Wedding Prayer” were sung with Mrs. Nelson playing the organ.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her brother Charles Westaby, wore a floor length gown of Chantilly lace over taffeta and organdy featuring long tapered sleeves with a pleated skirt train and a large bow at back, made by her sister-in-law, Mrs. Charles Westaby. Her fingertip veil was held with a crown and she carried a cascade bouquet of red roses and white carnations.

Miss Diane Wincek, friend of the bride, was maid of honor, wearing a blue lace over taffeta street length dress. Bridesmaids were Mrs. Maxine Alger, sister of the bride, and Mrs. Agnes Dassow, sister of the groom; both were wearing pink dresses identical to that of the maid of honor. They all wore crowns of pearls with blush veils and carried round bouquets of carnations matching their dresses.

Laura Westaby, niece of the bride, was flower girl, wearing a dress similar to the bride’s, of white Chantilly lace over taffeta and net. She wore a crown headpiece and carried a bouquet like the bride’s. A nephew of the bride, Duane Rogauski, was ring bearer.

Gerald Westaby, brother of the bride, was best man, and groomsmen were Donald Westaby, brother of the bride, and James Weisfeld, brother of the groom. Ushers were William Alger, brother-in-law of the bride, and Bob Dassow, brother-in-law of the groom.

A reception was held at the church parlors.

The groom is an Aluminum Specialty Co. factory worker.

After a wedding trip to Northern Wisconsin, they will make their home at Keil, Wisconsin.
