Mechelke, Bonnie Lou (Marriage - 27 June 1970)

Miss Bonnie Lou Mechelke, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Warren Mechelke of Rt. 2 Loyal, was united in marriage to Jerome J. Becker, son of Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Becker of Rt. 1 Greenwood, Saturday at 12:30 at ceremonies in St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Loyal. Msgr. Norbert King performed the double ring ceremony in the presence of 200 guests.

The bride was attired in a Chantilace and tulle bouffant gown and wore a chapel train full from the shoulders. A pearl and crystal crown held the illusion veil. She carried a bouquet of red roses, miniature white carnations and stephanotis, as she was escorted to the altar by her father.

Miss Arlene Mechelke was maid-of-honor. Avis Becker and Lois Becker were bridesmaids. They wore aqua chiffon over peau, straight with a café-effect dresses, with venise lace trim down the sides, neckline and sleeves. Cabbage rose headpieces, rimmed in pearls held their veils. They carried ball bouquets of pompons and miniature pink roses.

James Becker was bestman. Arnold Becker and William Pagelsdorf were groomsmen. Jack Mechelke and Alan Becker were ushers.

A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents, with 200 guests attending.

The bride graduated from Loyal High School in 1967 and is employed in Spencer. The groom graduated from the same high school in 1963 and is employed in Marshfield.

After a wedding trip into Michigan the couple will make their home at 513 North Cedar, Marshfield.
