Johnson, Vera M. (1 MAY 1952)

A very pretty wedding was solemnized at Our Savior's Lutheran Church on Thursday, May 1, 1952 at 2:00 p.m., when Miss Vera Marie Johnson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Johnson, became the bride of Harold August Prust, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Prust of Spencer, in a double ring performed by the Rev. O.K. Odland of Curtiss.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of white satin styled with a net yoke, fitted bodice and long sleeves, which came to points over the wrists. Her full skirt extended into a long train. She wore a finger-tip veil of illusion edged with Chantilly lace, and carried a shower bouquet of red and white roses.

Mrs. Robert Prust, sister-in-law of the groom, as matron of honor, wore a rose colored gown styled with a lace bodice, cap sleeves, Peter Pan collar, and a full skirt. Her matching gauntlets completed her ensemble and she carried a colonial bouquet of aqua, pink and white carnations.

Mrs. Glen Phillips, friend of the bride, as bridesmaid, wore a light aqua gown, styled identically as the matron of honor. She also carried a bouquet of aqua, pink and white carnations.

Robert Prust, Spencer, served his brother as best man, with Glen Phillips, Wis. Rapids, friend of the groom, as groomsman. All three wore white carnation boutonnieres.

Leroy Schmitz, Spencer, friend of the couple, and Raymond Johnson, Loyal, cousin of the bride, ushered.

During the ceremony Mrs. Louis Behrens sang "Crown with Thy Benediction: and "The Lord's Prayer," accompanied by Mrs. Don Warner at the organ, who also played the processional and recessional.

The bride's mother viewed her daughter's wedding in a gray dress with blue and red accessories, and the groom's mother wore a navy blue dress with blue and white accessories. Each wore a corsage of pink and white carnations and sweet peas.

The day also marked the 64th anniversary of the bride's grandmother, Mrs. Martha, Cole, wife of the late Dr. B.A. Cole.

Dinner was held at 4:30 in the church parlors for approximately 100 guests and in the evening a dance was held at the County Ballroom.
