Ednar and Stella’s Wedding

At 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 25, 1942, Ednar Borreson and Stella Berg were married on the lawn at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ludwig Berg of Whitehall. The setting was framed by “a birch arbor, with a profusion of sumac and ferns growing naturally into the framework placed between two groves of trees.”

Stella’s maid of honor was her sister, Myrtle Berg, and a cousin, Florence Goplin, was her bridesmaid. Ednar’s best man was his brother, Sidney Borreson, and his bride’s cousin, Alfred Berg, was groomsman.

The presiding minister was the Rev. C. K. Malmin of the United Lutheran Church in Pigeon Falls. Mrs. C. K. Malmin sang before the ceremony, and Florence Goplin after. Valborg Thomte played as the bride approached the altar.

The dining room was decorated in pink and white streamers for the reception attended by 65 guests, including many from out-of-town.

Following their wedding trip, Ednar and Stella were planning to establish their home with his parents in Fitch Coulee (Winona Republican-Herald, July 24, 1942).
