Miss Elizabeth Federer Is Wed to Robert Badura

Six persons in the wedding party made their appearance in Holy Name of Jesus Church this morning before the bride, Miss Elizabeth Ann Federer, walked down the aisle to be met by Robert Joseph Badura, the bridegroom. The Rev. Harold Petronis was officiant of the 11 o'clock service, a double-ring ceremony.

The main altar was decorated with white gladioli and candles. Greens and plants banked the place of the ceremony, where standards of flowers and candelabra were further adornment. Pews were marked with white flowers.

Atty. and Mrs. Jacob Frank Federer, 2329 N. 3rd St., are parents of the bride, who was presented in marriage by her father to the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Badura, 543 High Ave., Kohler.

A fitted bodice and a full bouffant skirt were the fashion of the bridal gown of Rosepoint lace and French tulle. The Queen Anne collar was trimmed in iridescent sequins and baby seed pearls. Panels of the lace were front and back decor of the skirt, which extended into a cathedral-length train. The fingertip veil of illusion was fastened to a small half crown of matching lace that was the headpiece. The bouquet of stephanotis was centered with a white orchid and was in cascade design.

All-white dresses of crystalette made in ballerina length were born by the attendants. Bodices were fitted and skirts large and circular. The neckline and skirt were trimmed in accordion-pleated insets and there were small bows and streamers in the back. Half-hats to match dresses and in accordion-pleated style were headpieces. Pink demure garnet roses were in cascade bouquets they held.

Miss Ann Federer was her sister's maid of honor and the quartet of bridesmaids comprised Miss Lois Yurk, Miss Sheila Searls, Madison, roommate of the bride at the University of Wisconsin, Miss Patricia Koehn and Miss Edythe Dekker.

Another in the procession was the flower girl, Eileen Desmond, Kohler, whose dress of white crystalette was similar in style to those worn by the other attendants. Her bouquet was a miniature of the one carried by the bride.

James Stephani, Kohler, was in the capacity of best man and the groomsmen were William Nack of St. Paul, Minn., and Douglas Nelson, Kohler, a roommate of the bridegroom at the University of Wisconsin.

Guests were taken to places by Paul Ginsburg, Madison, Lynn Peters, Marion, Wis., and another roommate, Dean Richardson Jr., of Oconomowoc.

Organist, Miss Roseann Wagner, played for the nuptials and accompanied the soloist, Mrs. N.E. Dohms, who sang, `Ave Maria,' `Panis Angelicus,' and `Mother Dear, Oh Pray for Me.'

Approximately 200 guests were entertained at luncheon and the reception that were held in the floral setting of the garden of the Federer home, where Lake Michigan is a background.

Northern Wisconsin is the locale of the wedding trip and until Sept. 15, the couple will be living at the bride's home and will be going to Madison to reside. Both will be seniors at the University of Wisconsin in fall. The bride formerly was a student at Rosary College in River Forest, Ill., for one and one-half years. Her husband plays guard on Wisconsin's Varsity Basketball Squad. He belongs to Phi Epsilon Kappa, a physical education fraternity.

Numerous guests came for the nuptials and festivities. They are the following: ....
