Beitelspacher-Toel Wedding Takes Place
Married Sunday At Christ Lutheran In Grant Township
Christ's Lutheran church of Grant township was the scene of a pretty candlelight wedding Sunday, November 9, at 7 p. m. when Miss Louise Beitelspacher of Struble became the bride of Louis Toel of Hinton. The ceremony performed by Rev. Voss took place in front of the altar decorated with lighted tapers, chrysanthemums and fern.
The bridal party entered the church to the strains of the wedding march from Lohengrin played by Martha Bunge. Mr. and Mrs. Nonie Dillehay of Sioux City sang, "O Promise Me" and "I Love You Truly." Members of the bridal party were Miss Emma Beitelspacher, sister of the bride, who was maid of honor, and Miss Jenette Speckman, friend of the couple, bridesmaid. The groom was attended by Wilbur Toel, his brother, and Arvin Epling, friend of the couple. Ushers were Henry Beitelspacher, brother of the bride, and Ralph Riediger, a friend. The bride appeared charming in her gown of traditional white satin entrain, styled with sweetheart neckline and leg-o-mutton sleeves. Chantilly lace accented the train. Her fingertip veil of illusion tulle and edged in Chantilly lace was caught by a tiara of tiny seed pearls. She chose for her flowers a pretty bouquet of roses and sweet peas tied with white ribbon. The maid of honor wore a gown of rose brocaded satin made with shirred bodice, sweetheart neckline and elbow length sleeves. She and her bridesmaid carried bouquets of blue and pink sweet peas, her bouquet being tied with blue ribbon and the bridesmaid's with pink ribbon. The bridesmaid's gown was of aqua blue taffeta with short puffed sleeves, sweetheart neckline and a wreath of tiny roses completed the bodice.
A wedding supper was served in the home of the bride's mother to 50 guests. The centerpiece for the table was a three-tier wedding cake. Other decorations were carried out in pink, blue and white, the bride's colors. A shower of gifts was given the couple after the supper hour. Serving honors were accorded Misses Marian and Marvel Schulz, Helen Roepke and Dorothy Susemihl. Miss Hannah Onken was dining room hostess. Kitchen hostesses were Mesdames Fred Susemihl, Charles Eufers and Erwin Stusse.
