The Vidette Messenger, Valparaiso, Porter, Indiana, Friday, October 24, 1947, page 7. Chesterton.

A lovely fall wedding was held at the Atlas Roller rink, Saturday at 2 p.m. when Ila Joan Saidla, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Saidla, was united in marriage with Dallas B. Summers, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dallas L. Summers, all of Chesterton. The Rev. R. Ross Shannon performed the double ring ceremony.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a grey wool suit, grey accessories, white floral headdress and blusher veil. Her bouquet of white baby mums was centered with a white and orchid removable corsage.

Mr. and Mrs. Lee Collins, LaPorte, were the attendants. Mrs. Collins wore a black suit, pink carnation headdress and carried a bouquet of pink carnations.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held for 200 guests. Mrs. Clarence Cox poured and Mrs. Walter Tague, Indianapolis, aunt of the bride, served the wedding cake.

The bride's mother wore a blue dress and the groom's mother wore a rose-beige suit. Both had white mum corsages.

The bride graduated with the class of 1947 from Chesterton high school. The groom is now employed at Inland Steel Co. at Indiana Harbor. After a short honeymoon trip, the couple will live at 215 N. Calumet Road.
