Miss Sylvia Rinka Becomes Mrs. Frederick Wuestenhagen

Baskets and vases of garden flowers decorated Zion Reformed church this afternoon at 4 o'clock for the wedding of Miss Sylvia Rinka, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Rinka, 2411 S. Eighth Street, and Frederick E. Wuestenhagen, 616 Superior Avenue of this city. The Nuptial service was read by the Rev. E. H. Wessler.

The bride appeared in a gown of white marquisette, designed with lace inserts, full skirt with a slight train and puffed sleeves. Her white tulle fingerprint veil and blusher were caught to a cluster of seed pearls. She carried a colonial bouquet of white Kilarney roses, pompons and eupoturium.

The bride's only attendant was Miss Doris Voechting, attired in a gown of yellow marquisette styled like the bride's. Her headpiece was fashioned of yellow tulle flowers, from which fell her circular veil. Her colonial bouquet was made up of Talisman roses, gold and bronze pompons.

Howard Mecusen attended the bridegroom as best man.

Following the ceremony Norman Dewey sang a solo, "Because."

A 6 o'clock wedding supper will be served to the members of the bridal party at Benedict's Heidelberg club, after which a reception will be held at the bridegroom's home for friends and relatives.

The couple is leaving on a wedding trip along the shores of Lake Michigan through Michigan. The bride has been employed as a stenographer for the Alfred Jung company and the bridegroom is employed at Arndt Brother's company.
