Viegut, Charmaine (Marriage - 19 May 1956) 

Mr. and Mrs. Harold Amacher will make their home in Abbotsford on their return from a Canadian honeymoon trip. Their marriage took place Saturday, May 19, at St. Peter’s Lutheran church, Dorchester. The Rev. F. H. Sprengler performed the ceremony at 1:30 o’clock. 

The bride, the former Charmaine Viegut, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Viegut, of Dorchester, and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. H. U. Amacher, of Abbotsford. 

For her wedding, the bride, presented in marriage by her father, wore a white, floor length gown of lace, designed with a mandarin collar, long, pointed sleeves and a lace peplum over rows of ruffles down the skirt. Sequins and pearls, trimmed the collar and yoke and her finger tip veil of French illusion was held by a head dress of pearls and sequins. She carried a lace covered bride’s prayer book on which was an arrangement of three white orchids and stephanotis. 

Her attendants were dressed alike in floor length gowns of aqua. They were made with rows of ruffles on the skirt and, like that of the bridal gown, were detailed with a lace peplum. They also wore lace jackets over the lace bodices. They carried crescent shaped bouquets of pink carnations and roses and wore the same flowers in their hair. They all wore pearl chokers, gifts of the bride. 

The maid of honor and the best man were Miss Carol Amacher, sister of the groom, and Clarence Viegut, Jr., Dorchester, brother of the bride. The other attendants were the bride’s brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Koerner, Dorchester; Miss Bonnie Kalepp, of Shawano, and Ronald Graffunder, of Medford. 

Ushers were Mark Amacher, Medford; and Du Wayne Kalepp, Abbotsford, cousin and friend, respectively, of the groom. 

For the occasion, a charcoal gray linen dress was worn by the bride’s mother and an aqua linen suit by the groom’s mother. Both wore white accessories and had corsages of pink and white carnations and roses. 

Mrs. Fred Wurgler, grand mother of the bride, and Mrs. Mary Scheeler, grand mother of the groom, had corsages of yellow carnations. 

Organ music was played by Herbert Juneau, who also played the accompaniment for the vocal selections. 

"O Perfect Love," and "Lord Who at Cana’s Wedding Feast," were sung by the Misses Dorothy and Marilyn Kieser. 

A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents and a 4:30 wedding supper for about 150 guests was served at the church basement. In the evening, the new Mr. and Mrs. Amacher greeted friends at Memorial Hall, Dorchester. Mrs. Raymond Fritsche served the wedding cake and Mrs. Henry Rozemonski, both of Wausau, was in charge of the guest book. 

Guests at the wedding came from Abbotsford, Medford, Milwaukee, Stetsonville, Colby, Stratford, Athens, Milan, Wausau, Schofield, Rozellville, Fond du Lac, and Cazenovia. 

For her going away costume the bride chose brown accessories for her beige suit. Two white orchids were pinned to her shoulder. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Amacher are employed at the Abbotsford Variety Store.
