Bradley, Virjean (11 JUNE 1949)


In a lovely wedding ceremony at 2 p.m. Saturday. June 11, at Zion Lutheran church in Stratford, Miss Virjean Bradley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Bradley of the town of Emmet, Marathon county, pledged marriage vows with Pfc. John P. Brandt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Brandt of Stratford, who is stationed at the Bolling air force base in Washington D.C. The Brandts were formerly residents of this vicinity.

Miss Janet Bradley attended her sister as maid of honor, wearing an orchid marquisette over taffeta gown designed with a peek-a-boo skirt revealing tiered lace and a snug bodice with drop-shoulder effect. The matron of honor, Mrs. Herman Frickenstein of Stratford, was attired in pink marquisette over taffeta, her gown accented with a sweetheart neckline.


The bridesmaids, Mrs. Romaine Rossow of Loyal, a cousin of the groom, and Miss Eileen Winistorfer of Stratford, a friend of the couple, also wore marquisette over taffeta, the former in nile green and the latter in blue. Accenting Mrs. Rossow’s dress were tiers of lace from the front of the skirt to the hemline and extending around the back of the
