Bichler, Hedwig (29 MAY 1928)

A very pretty wedding took place at St. Balthasar’s Church at 9:00 o’clock Tuesday, May 29th, when Miss Hedwig Bichler became the bride of Mr. James Bertz, Rev. Joseph Stenz performing the ceremony.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Bichler. She wore a beautiful white, beaded dress and veil and carried a bouquet of roses and sweet peas. Miss Gertrude Bichler, a sister of the bride acted as maid of honor and wore a green dress trimmed with lace, The bridesmaids were Miss Leoma Uberlacker of Marathon, who wore an orchid dress and Miss Gwendolyne Bertz of Marshfield who wore a peach colored dress. The maid of honor and bridesmaids wore head bands to harmonize with their dresses and carried bouquets of sweet peas and carnations.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Bertz and was attired in a dark blue suit. He was attended by Arthur Bichler of Marathon and Victor Bichler of Milwaukee, brothers of the bride, who also wore blue suits.

After the ceremony the bridal party returned to the home of the bride’s parents, where a sumptuous dinner was served to relatives and a few close friends.

The flowers on the brides table were pinks and zinnias. The other tables were adorned with pink candles. The afternoon was spent in a very social way after which a supper was served.

The out of town guests were Misses Elenore and Elizabeth Uberlacher of Marathon; Miss Lillian Langers of Belgium, Wis., Messrs. Alfred Usadel of Edgar, Leo Hornning of Marathon and Alex Bichler of Milwaukee. Both young people are very well known here and have a wide cicle of friends.

Mr. and Mrs. Bertz will make their future home on the farm of the groom’s parents, located south of Loyal. The Tribune joins with their many friends in extending heartiest Congratulations to the newly weds.
