Mohr, Ruby (Marriage - 4 September 1954)

Baskets of red and white dahlias, pink and white hydrangeas and salmon and white gladioli decorated the inside of St. John’s Evangelical Church, Neillsville, when the Rev. Alfred Schewe heard the marriage vows of Miss Ruby Mohr and Harry Ambelang, both of Neillsville, during a 2:30 p.m. double-ring ceremony, Saturday, Sept. 4. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. William C. Ambelang, Rt. 2 Neillsville.

As the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Mohr, Neillsville was escorted to the altar by her father, she wore a tiered gown of imported Chantilly lace over satin with molded bodice and mandarin collar. Her fingertip veil of imported illusion net was secured by a headpiece of net flowers and pearls and she carried a bouquet of red roses caught with lace ribbons.

The maid of honor, Miss Beatrice Mohr, sister of the bride, wore a blue strapless gown of three tiers of net-over-taffeta with a satin jacket accented by mandarin collar and matching gauntlets. She carried a fan shaped bouquet of Talisman roses and delphinium.

The two flower girls were Alaina Mohr and Donna Mohr, nieces of the bride. They were attired in white frocks identical to the bride’s and carried miniature replicas of the bridal bouquet.
