Martin, Anna (Marriage - 27 Oct. 1936)

A very pretty wedding took place at St. Mary’s Catholic church in Colby Tuesday morning, Rev. L. J. Lang performing the ceremony at a nuptial high mass, when Miss Magdaline Anna Martin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Martin, became the bride of Mr. Rudolph J. Weix. Miss Doretta Martin, sister of the bride, was maid of honor and Miss Martha Zila of Winona, Minn., was bridesmaid. The groom was attended by Arthur Hemmy Jr. and Wilbur Becker.

The bride was attired in a beautiful floor length gown of white transparent velvet, fashioned along princess lines, and an entrained veil in tunic style and arranged in tiara effect caught with seed pearls. Her bouquet consisted of chrysanthemums and roses. The maid of honor wore a gown of brown transparent velvet with matching turban and silver accessories. The bridesmaid wore a dress of moss green velvet with matching turban and accessories in gold. Both carried bouquets of chrysanthemums and fall flowers.

Following the ceremony, a breakfast for the bridal party was served at the home of the bride’s parents. A reception and dinner was held at 4:30, covers being laid for fifty guests. The home was nicely decorated with cut flowers.

The groom, a son of Michael Weix, is a graduate of the Colby, Wis. High school and is a World War veteran. He is in the garage business. The newlyweds will make a wedding trip to various points east and will be at home after November 10th.
