Sukopp, Carol M. (16 FEB 1947)

Probst, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry A. Probst, all of Eau Claire. The Very Rev. Gordon E. Brandt performed the double ring ceremony before an altar decorated with candelabra and baskets of flowers.

The bridal party entered the church to the strains of the wedding march from Lohengrin, played by Cecil Neubecker. He also accompanied Miss Beatrice Alitz, who sang "Oh Perfect Love: and "The Lord’s Prayer."

The bride’s father escorted her down the aisle, which was decorated with white ribbon bows and white snapdragons.

Her gown was of ivory satin with a peplum ending in a full circular train. Her fingertip veil and blush veil of net were edged with wide lace and held in place by a beaded tiara. She carried a white prayer book on which there were three orchids and from which fell white streamers.

Mrs. Robert Olson, sister of the bride, as matron of honor, and Miss Donna Bergh as bridesmaid wore identical gowns of peach taffeta. Each wore long peach gloves and carried bouquets of iris and acacia. Their half-caps were held in place by carnations. They wore earrings, gifts of the bride.

The flower girl, Sally Freid, wore a floor length colonial gown of ivory satin. She carried a white Testament which was a gift from the bride.

The bride’s mother wore a black dress with sprays of embroidered flowers and black accessories.

The mother of the groom wore a gray suit with blue accessories. Each woe a corsage of red roses.

A reception was held in the parish house following the ceremony.
