Helfert, Marie (5 Sept. 1946)

Miss Marie Helfert, daughter of Mrs. Pauline Helfert, Dorchester, became the bride of Rudolph Kugel, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Kugel, of Abbotsford, Route 1, this morning, at St. Louis’ Catholic church, Dorchester, Wis. The Rev. Phillip Weller read the service at 9:00 o’clock, followed by the nuptial high mass.

The bride wore a gown of white taffeta, designed with long sleeves and a full skirt. The fitted bodice was distinguished with an off the shoulder neck line, filled in with chiffon. Her full length veil fell from a tiara of seed pearls and flowers. She wore a gold cross and chain and carried a shower bouquet of mixed flowers.

Attending her as matron of honor was her sister-in-law, Mrs. Nicholas Helfert, who was attired in a frock of white net over taffeta and a matching blusher veil.

The bridesmaid was Miss Marie Buchholtz, of Park Ridge, Ill. She wore an aqua lace and net over taffeta dress with matching blusher veil. Each of the attendants wore a gold cross and chain and carried a bouquet of mixed flowers.

The best man was Nicholas Helfert, brother of the bride. Eldred Tauchen, of Milan, was usher.

Both mothers wore black dresses and corsages of mixed flowers.

Following the ceremony a reception and dinner and supper were served to about 50 guests at the home of the bride’s brother and sister-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Helfert, Dorchester, Wis. White and aqua paper streamers, held at the center by a wedding bell, decorated the dining room. A three tier cake was the centerpiece on the bridal table.

In the evening, a wedding dance was held at Walter’s pavilion at Colby, Wis.
