Ellenberger, Charlotte (Marriage - 22 June 1957) 

Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Mittelstadt are making their home in Villa North, Indiana. Their marriage took place at Ft. Wayne, Indiana, June 22. 

Mr. Mittelstadt, son of Mrs. Eli Mittelstadt, was graduated from the Abbotsford high school and served four years in the navy. An employee at the Franklin Electric Company, he is attending Purdue University extension at Ft. Wayne.

A double ring ceremony was used in the exchange of marriage vows between Bruce Mittelstadt and Miss Charlotte Ellengerger, Saturday, June 22, at 6:30 p.m. at the First Methodist church at Ft. Wayne. 

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a white, floor length gown of Chantilly lace over taffeta, designed with long sleeves and a scalloped scoop neckline. A crown of seed pearls and sequins held her finger tip veil. She carried a white Bible, topped by a lavender orchid, and wore a pearl necklace and earrings. 

The bride’s three attendants wore identically styled dresses. They wore street length dresses of nylon dotted Swiss over taffeta. A lavender band at the waist of the princess frocks formed a large bow in the back and ended in streamers. 

The matron of honor carried a bouquet of white carnations and pink roses while the bridesmaids carried pink and white carnations. 

The little flower girl also was attired like the honor attendant and carried a basket of pink petals. 

Alfred Mittelstadt, brother of the groom, was one of the ushers. 

The mother of the bride chose a navy blue dress while the mother of the groom had a light blue dress. Both had white accessories and a corsage of white carnations. 

Following the ceremony a reception for 200 guests was held in the church basement.
