Hastreiter, Phyllis (2 JUL 1940)

Mr. Arnold A. Velcheck, son of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Velcheck, and Miss Phyllis Hastreiter, daughter of Mrs. Barbara Hastreiter of this village (Thorp, Clark Co., Wis.), were joined in holy wedlock by Father A.M. Muckerheide at nuptial high mass at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church here at 8:30 o’clock Tuesday morning.

The bridesmaids, Miss Beatrice Velcheck, sister of the groom, and Miss Marjorie Soderberg, cousin of the groom, were dressed alike in pale blue velva ray organza. They carried colonial bouquets of kilarney roses, blue delphiniums and pink sweet peas. Rosettes of white tulle, centered with a rose, adorned their hair.

The bride was beautifully attired in a colonial style gown of slipper satin with a full overskirt of tulle, adorned with rosettes of Chantilly lace. She wore a fingertip veil held in place with a single gardenia and white swansonia. Her all white bouquet was of gardenias, swansonia and Briarcliff roses.

The groom and his attendants, Bernard and Gordon Hastreiter, brothers of the bride, wore the conventional dark blue suits with boutonnieres of gardenias and white carnations.

A wedding breakfast was served to immediate relatives of the couple at the home of the bride’s mother and shortly afterward the newlyweds left for their new home at Bingham Canyon, Utah, where the groom is employed.

For traveling the bride wore a suit combination of lavender print dress and white jacket with matching accessories.

The groom and bride are both graduates of the Thorp High School and the groom a graduate of the Notre Dame University. They enjoy a large circle of friends in this community who join in tendering congratulations.
