Eugene Walter Koll Claims Miss Shelby Neese As Bride

Our Redeemer Lutheran Church was the setting for the marriage ceremony of Miss Shelby Jean Neese and Eugene Walter Koll. They repeated vows before the Rev. Robert Ehlers in a 2:30 o'clock service Saturday afternoon.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Erwin Neese, 1227 N. 37th St. Parents of the bridegroom are Mr. and Mrs. Walter Koll, Route 3, S. 12th St. Vases of carnations and gladioli were used on the altar of the church.

Music was provided by Mrs. Melvin Hoffman, organist, and Kenneth Ehle, vocalist, whose numbers were "The Lord's Prayer" and "Wedding Prayer."

Trio of attendants comprised Miss Karen Koll, the bridegroom's sister, who appeared in mint green and white, Miss Nancy Dexheimer, bridesmaid, and Bonnie Neese, sister of the bride, in a junior role. They were dressed in pink and white gowns. Dresses of the three were white nylon organza with Sabrina necklines, fitted bodices and bouffant, street-length skirts. Embroidery cascades extended over the bodices and fronts of the skirts. Taffeta cummerbunds and white streamers for back interest were other details of styling. Pixie cap-style headpieces with leaves and vines were pearl-trimmed. Silk illusion face veils matched the trim on the dresses. Each held matching umbrellas of pink carnations and demure roses. A nylon organza, floor-length gown was worn by the bride and its design included the Sabrina neckline, gathered sleeves and ruffles on the back of the skirt. The front of the skirt was adorned with three appliques. Sequins trimmed the neckline. Matching mitts were worn. Her lace cap-style headpiece had pearls and organza bows for trimming and pleated nylon tubing extended across it. Imported French illusion with hand-rolled edge comprised the elbow-length veil. Flowers carried by the bride were white carnations, stephanotis and pink demure roses, in an elongated cascade style. Her father presented her in marriage.

Best man in the wedding party was Ronald Hamann. The groomsmen, Charles Koll and Dale Neese, brothers of the couple, were also the ushers.

Supper for 250 guests was served at Standard Hall, the place of the reception. Mr. Koll and his bride are not making their wedding trip plans known but they will be residing at 3118A N. 27th St. Both are graduates of Central High School, the bride in 1959, the bridegroom the previous year. She is employed at Jung Shoe Co., he at Rway Furniture Co., Inc.
