Genrich, Doris (Marriage - 18 Aug. 1954) 

A double ring ceremony united Miss Doris Genrich and Clarence Carpenter in marriage before the nuptial high mass sung at St. Louis’ Catholic church at Dorchester, Wednesday morning at 9:00 o’clock, with Msgr. Thomas Hayden officiating. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Genrich, of Dorchester, and the groom is the son of Mrs. Cathryn Carpenter, of Abbotsford. 

For her wedding the bride wore a gown of white lace and tulle over a slip of white satin. The molded bodice of lace featured a v-outline of lace, inset with large floral lace appliqué, studded with pearls and sequins. The neckline, of the sheer yoke of tulle, was edged with a scalloped lace collar also trimmed with pearls and sequins. The long lace sleeves tapered to points over the wrists. The full skirt was styled with a lace peplum with scalloped lace edge cut shorter at the front and longer at each side, with full skirt of accordion pleated tulle underneath, extending to the floor. The lace train extended from the waist band. 

Her French silk illusion veil, finger tip length, was secured to a floral carved tiara encrusted with mother of pearl sequins and outlined with pearls. She carried a bouquet of white gladioli and red roses. 

Attending her as matron of honor was her twin sister, Mrs. Jerome Ludwig, of Milwaukee. Mrs. Myron Kramer, Thorp, sister of the groom, was bridesmaid. They wore strapless gowns fashioned alike, of net over satin with lace jackets and bands of ruffled tulle in their hair. Pink was the color for the matron of honor and green for the bridesmaid. Their flowers were an arrangement of yellow baby mums and green and pink gladioli on white lace fans. 

Corsages of pink roses were worn by the mother of the bride, and the groom and the grand mother of the bride, Mrs. Johana Seddick. 

Mr. Ludwig, as best man, and Mr. Kramer attended the groom. 

Following the ceremony, a wedding breakfast and reception throughout the day were held at the home of the bride’s parents. About 150 guests were at the dinner and supper. In the evening, the bridal couple greeted their many friends at a wedding dance at Dorchester Memorial hall. 

After a two weeks’ wedding trip in northern Wisconsin, they will reside at the groom’s home on Second Street, in Abbotsford. Both Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter are employed at Danielson Cleaners.
