Kotchy, Loretta Marie (Marriage - 17 August 1957) 

The Rev. Arthur Oswald, pastor of the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church of Granton, performed the marriage ceremony Saturday when Miss Loretta Marie Kotchy became the bride of Wayne W. Trimberger, Clark County’s district attorney.  The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Kotchy of Rt. 4, Neillsville.  Mr. and Mrs. Walter Trimberger of Granton are parents of the groom. 

A reception for approximately 300 guests was served in the church dining hall following the double ring ceremony.   

The bridal gown was of floor-length imported rose point lace and tulle over satin.  The bouffant skirt was fashioned with inserts coming to points. Continuing tulle, with lace appliqué, revealed a ruffled underskirt. The fitted bodice with a portrait neckline was complete with long fitted sleeves that came to a point at the wrist.  Her veil of imported illusion was fastened to a lace clip cap trimmed with seed pearls and iridescent sequins.  Red roses made up the bridal bouquet. 

Her attendants wore identical floor-length gowns of pastel blue lace over nylon net and taffeta.  The fitted bodices with portrait necklines were highlighted by cap sleeves.  The bouffant skirts were similar to the bride’s, with lace and net revealing net underskirts. They wore headpieces of net to match dresses which were trimmed with sequins. They carried lace baskets filled with gladioli, pink roses and delphiniums.  

Mrs. Grace Ferber was her friend’s maid of honor.  Mrs. Eugene Trimberger, a sister-in-law of the groom, and Miss Sylvia Jahr, were her bridesmaids. 

Eugene Trimberger was his brother’s best man.  Groomsmen were Dale Trimberger and Dale Fravert.  Ushers were Allen Kotchy and Allen Fravert. 

Mr. and Mrs. Trimberger left on a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin. 

The bride is a graduate of the Neillsville High School and attended two years at Wisconsin State College at Stevens Point.  The groom was graduated from the Granton High School, and is a graduate of the law school. 

Out of town relatives attending the Trimberger-Kotchy wedding were: Mr. and Mrs. Harold Gault, Wausau; Miss Meta Kotchy, Chicago; Mr. and Mrs. Victor Trimberger, Albuquerque, N. M.; Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Hillert and daughter, Susan, Tomah; Richard Hillert, Jr., Wausau; Miss Elaine Trimberger, Bonduel (lines missing).
