Miss Gloria M. Grasse Is Bride Of Gaylord Schmidt
Nuptial vows were repeated on Saturday by Miss Gloria Marie Grasse and
Gaylord W. Schmidt. St. Paul's Evangelical and Reformed Church was the scene
of the 2 o'clock ceremony performed by the Rev. Marvin P. Lehmann.
Presented in marriage by her father, the bride is the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Fred Grasse, 2130 Henry St. Her attire was a gown of satin and lace
with a small, pointed collar of lace, a sheer yoke adorned with lace and
sequins and a lace-trimmed fitted bodice. Long, fitted sleeves and a full
bouffant skirt, which terminated in a large fan-shaped train with tiers of
lace in back, were other features of the gown. In the bridal bouquet, a
large white orchid was surrounded by baby orchids.
Miss Marlene Leicht was maid of honor for her cousin and donned a satin dress
in forest green with two layers of net set off by a tier of lace on each
side. Yellow roses and gladioli comprised her bouquet. Gowns of the
bridesmaids, Miss Margaret Schmidt, the bridegroom's cousin, and Miss
Patricia Hoenke, similarly related to the bride, were identical in gold.
They held bouquets of gladioli.
Best man for the ceremony was Fred Heronymus. Roles of groomsmen were
assumed by Karl Leicht, cousin of the bride, and Paul Reinke.
Soloist for the service was Miss Elaine Goldmann and her numbers were "I Love
You Truly" and "Because." Mrs. Herbert Grauman was organist.

evening reception, which approximately 300 relatives and friends attended.
Following a wedding trip, the couple will return to the city for a week and
then will leave for New York, N.Y., to reside. The bride was graduated from
