Beyer, Marian H. (4 SEP 1947)
Marian Hildegard Beyer became the bride of Arvid William Berger in a candlelight service at 7:30 on Thursday evening, Sept. 4, 1947, at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the town of Pine Valley (Clark Co., Wis.). The double ring service was read by the Rev. Leonard A. Domke, pastor, before an assemblage of relatives and friends. The church was decorated for the occasion with baskets of gladioli arranged with mixed garden flowers. The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William F. Byer, and the groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Berger, all of Neillsville.
The bride was given in marriage by her father. She was attired in an entrained ivory satin gown, styled with a lace bodice. She had a three-quarter length veil and carried an arm bouquet of Easter lilies and cream colored roses.
Miss Helen Trewartha attended the bride as maid of honor, and her two sisters, Mrs. Melvin Mech and Mrs. Ernest Horehled, were bridesmaids. Robert Berger served his brother as best man. Melvin Mech and Ernest Horehled were ushers. Betty Jane Marden and Jana Lee Marden were the flower girls. "Oh Perfect Love" was sung by Miss Nichols and Miss Winters.
A reception for 50 guests was held at the Merchants Hotel, with bride’s table being centered with a three tiered wedding cake, topped by a miniature bride and groom. The newlyweds left on a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin, and on their return will reside in Lafayette, Ind., where the groom is attending college.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Berger are graduates of the Neillsville High School. For the past two years the bride has been employed in the AAA office. The groom has been employed in his father’s store, and at present is attending Purdue University at Lafayette.
