Beyerl, Laura Victoria (Marriage - 2 May 1939)
Before an altar graced with gladioli and lighted by tall white tapers in branch candelabra, Miss Laura Victoria Beyerl, a graduate nurse and daughter of Frank Beyerl, town of Colby, became the bride of Ervin Meyer, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Meyer, town of Hull, in a ceremony performed early Tuesday morning at St. Mary’s Catholic church in Colby. The nuptial high mass was celebrated by the Rev. Father L. J. Lang.
The bride approached the altar wearing a white satin gown designed along princess lines. A seed pearl clip ornamented the shirred neckline of the bodice and tiny buttons trimmed the back. Her tulle veil, edged with lace, fell from a headdress of seed pearls. She carried a shower bouquet composed of roses and carnations.
Miss Helen Beyerl, Black River Falls, a sister of the bride, and Kenneth Meyer, a cousin of the bridegroom, attended the couple. Miss Beyerl wore a dusty pink lace gown with net inserts and a fingertip veil of aqua-blue attached to a flower coronet. She also wore a corsage bouquet of spring flowers.
Following the breakfast for the bridal party at the home of Dr. and Mrs. F. A. Weix in Colby, a reception the remainder of the day was held at the home of the bride’s father. Both dinner and supper were served to the 80 guests. Streamers of white, pink and aqua, wedding bells and baskets of flowers were used to decorate the home. Tuesday evening a wedding dance was given at Wiedenhoeft’s park.
Mr. Meyer and his bride will take a wedding trip and be at home to friends after May 10 in the town of Colby, where Mr. Meyer is engaged in farming.
The bride is a graduate of the Colby, Wis. High school and of the class of 1937 of St. Joseph hospital nurses’ training school, in Marshfield where she has practiced her profession the last two years.
