Newly Wedded Couple Makes Honeymoon Trip In The West

Yellowstone National park is the destination of Guenther W. Brestrich and his bride, the former Miss Mabel Bernice Butzen, who were married on Saturday. Their nuptial service at 2 o'clock was read by the Rev. J.A. Wagner in Trinity Lutheran church, Town Wilson.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Butzen, route 3, Sheboygan. Mr. and Mrs. William Brestrich, parents of the bridegroom, live on the same route.

Miss Virginia Brestrich, the bridegroom's sister, was asked to be the maid of honor. A cousin of the bride, Miss Doris Dyke, and Miss Lillian Bock were in bridesmaid roles.

Three brothers of the bride were among the male attendants. Robert Butzen was the best man, Arthur Butzen, one groomsman, and Donald Mueller, another. Guests were shown to places by Raymond Butzen and Kenneth Rammer. Wedding music was played by Mrs. Anthony Gartman, and Mr. Hansen sang "Where He Leads Me I Will Follow" and "The Lord's Prayer."

Forty-five guests were entertained at a 6 o'clock wedding dinner served at Town Wilson hall, and the reception there had 350 relatives and friends present. Among those from farther distances were Mr. and Mrs. Fred Paasch, Dagett, Mich.; Mr. and Mrs. William Verhulst, Franksville, Wis.; Mr. And Mrs. Anton Malewiski, Waterfort, Wis.; Mr. and Mrs. Ben Butzen, Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. William Kuether, Waukesha, and Mrs. Sophia Kaems, Manitowoc. When the couple returns from the West, they will be at home with the bridegroom's parents. The bride is employed at the H.C. Prange Co., and Mr. Brestrich works at Armour Leather company.
