Wehling, Elsie A. (12 JUN 1930)

A pretty June wedding took place Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock, June 12, in the Evangelical Lutheran Church, Loyal, Wis., when Miss Elsie Agnes Wehling, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Wehling, became the bride of Mr. Louis J. Pachal, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Pachal. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Leschensky.

The church was attractively decorated with baskets of flowers. The Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin, played by Mrs. Edward Schaeffer announced the arrival of the bride and groom and their attendants.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was becomingly attired in white satin, colonial bodice affect, with flounce of Chantilly lace, gracefully dipping in the back, and an embroidered tulle veil, which fell in a train from a cap-shaped arrangement, adorned with pearls. She carried a shower bouquet of pink roses, carnations , and snapdragons with ferns. She was attended by Miss Adela Pachal, maid of honor, who wore orchid satin and wore roses and sweet peas, and the bridesmaid, Miss Elsie Lyle whose frock was of yellow satin and she wore sweet peas and bridal wreath.

The groom was attired in navy blue serge and was attended by his brother Frank Pachal and Albert Wehling, who wore navy blue serge respectively.

Marie Wehling and Alice Pachal acted as flower girls, carrying baskets of sweet peas and bridal wreath with ferns. They were dressed in pink flat crepe.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents, where decorations were carried out in a color scheme of lavender, yellow, white and pink streamers, white wedding bells, and large baskets of flowers.

Dinner was served to about one hundred guests. In the evening there was a dance given in the Oakwood Pavillion, a large number attended and enjoyed a good time.

Both bride and groom are well and favorably known here, and a host of friends wish the happy young couple a long and happy married life.

Mr. and Mrs. Pachal will make their home on the groom’s father’s farm, in the town of Beaver, after their return from their wedding trip which will include the following places: Dells of Wisconsin, Kewaunee, Milwaukee, Hartford and Chicago. They will be at home after July 1st.

Among the out of town guests were; Mr. and Mrs. Martin Ledvina and daughter Clara and Mr., Ed. Gabriel of Kewaunee, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Schellinger of Hartford, Mr. and Mrs. Boyd Williamson and daughter Rachel of Neillsville, Miss Loiree Mathwig of Hartford, and Mr. and Mrs. O. Kommers of Riplinger.
