Westphal, Evelyn (Marriage - 16 Sept. 1936)

Evelyn Westphal, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Westphal of this city, and Walter Johnson, son of Mrs. Ella Johnson, of Loyal, were united in marriage Sept. 16 at 2:30 p.m. at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Rev. William Baumann officiating in the double ring ceremony which was witnessed by 45 relatives and friends. The church was attractively decorated with nile green and white streamers, gladioli and mixed flowers.

Miss Westphal was pretty in a white transparent velvet floor length gown, cowl neckline and dolman sleeves. Her long veil was held in place by a band of orange blossoms and she carried a bouquet of pink roses. The bridesmaid, Helen Schlinkert, cousin of the bride, wore a very alluring costume of nile green taffeta with white accessories, a silver head band and a wrist bouquet of pink and mixed flowers. William Westphal, a brother of the bride, was the best man.

After the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents and supper was served at 5 p.m. to 45 guests. A large wedding cake decorated the table and the home was decorated with green and white streamers, a wedding bell, large baskets of gladioli and several bouquets of other flowers. The evening was spent in a social time and lunch was served at midnight.
