Meyer, Irene (23 SEP 1937)

At nine o’clock Thursday morning of last week at the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Fredonia, a beautiful wedding ceremony united Miss Irene Meyer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Meyer of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), to Menroy J. Steffen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Steffen of Fredonia.

To the strains of Lohengrin, the bridesmaids proceeded to the altar and were followed by the bride, who entered on the arm of her father. The groom and his attendants met the bridal party at the altar. The bride was given in marriage by her father.

Attired in a beautiful gown of white satin with a lace yoke and a high neckline caught with tiny satin petals, the bride was a picture of loveliness. Her circular veil was of silk tulle and finger-tip length, that fell in graceful folds from a satin braid covered with orange blossoms. She wore satin slippers and carried an arm bouquet of white gladioli and baby breath.

Miss Marie Radowitz, a close friends of the bride, acted as maid of honor. She wore a gown of virgin blue taffeta with a short jacket and blue tulle hat to match. Her bouquet consisted of pink gladioli and baby breath.

The bridesmaid, Mrs. Lester Meyer, sister-in-law of the bride, wore a pink taffeta gown with a short jacket and wore a pink tulle hat to match. She carried an arm bouquet similar to that of the maid of honor.

Nicholas Steffen attended his brother as best man, and Lester Meyer, brother of the bride, acted as groomsman. The men wore the conventional dark suits.

The altar and sanctuary were banked with vases and high baskets of beautiful fall flowers.

Rev. O. Winninghoff presided at the ceremony and the Senior choir sang the nuptial mass.

After the ceremony, a wedding breakfast was served to the immediate relatives and friends at the home of Mr. and Mrs. B. Steffen.
