Arno M. Drews Jr. Claims Miss Coral Vergowe As Bride

California will be the future home of a couple married Saturday evening, Mr. and Mrs. Arno M. Drews Jr. The bride is the former Miss Coral D. Vergowe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Vergowe of Adell. Parents of the bridegroom are Mr. and Mrs. Arno Drews Sr. of Cascade.

The seven o'clock service in Hingham Reformed Church was read by the Rev. Wayne Lemmen.

Mrs. Harold Kappers' solos were `The Lord's Prayer' and `Because.'

Palms and white gladioli were used for the candlelight setting.

Bridal attire was a floor-length gown of Chantilly lace and tulle over satin. The fitted bodice was styled with short sleeves and a sweetheart neckline, accented with pleated tulle and lace, sequins and pearls having been the adornment. Four handkerchief tiers, edged with lace, comprised the bouffant skirt. The fingertip veil of silk illusion was attached to a lace crown, trimmed with sequins and pearls. A cascade arrangement of white glamellias was carried.

Miss Mary Vergowe, sister of the bride, chosen as maid of honor, was dressed in lime green silk organza over taffeta. The fitted bodice was styled with a taffeta cummerbund and a round neckline, which came to a V in back. A taffeta bow with streamers that extended to the hemline provided back interest. White gardenias were designed in a colonial bouquet that the attendant held.
