Meyer, Judith (Marriage - 12 October 1957) 

Nuptial rites Saturday united in marriage Miss Judith Meyer and Gale Gall. The 2 p.m. service took place at the Zion Evangelical and Reformed Church in Neillsville, with the Rev. Albert Guthmiller, pastor, performing the double ring ceremony before an altar baked with baskets of white and lavender mums. 

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a floor length gown of nylon net and Chantilly lace over taffeta.  A bouffant skirt, fashioned with two tiers of net and lace, alternated in points down the skirt revealing a full net ruffle which extended to the floor.  The fitted bodice with a zip back closing was complete with a Peter Pan collar and lacey sleeves coming to points over the wrists.  Her finger-tip veil was attached to a crown of seed pearls and sequins.  Her bridal bouquet consisted of a deep purple orchid surrounded by feathered carnations. 

The bride asked her fiend, Cherly Holt, to be her matron-of-honor.  Betty Wilsman was her bridesmaid.  They wore floor-length gowns of cotillion blue and pink. Tiers of lace and net alternated over the bouffant skirts of taffeta.  The sleeveless, fitted bodices also were fashioned of nylon and lace over taffeta, with matching jackets and matching head bands. 

Jim Holt was best man and Bob Wilsman served as groomsman.  Ushers were Charles Meyer, brother of the bride, and William Meier, a friend. 

A reception for approximately 100 guests was held in Becker’s party room, which was decorated in pink, blue and white. 

Mr. and Mrs. Gall will reside in Wisconsin Rapids, where he is employed as a millwright. 

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Fred Meyer of 108 W. 10th Street Neillsville, and Mr. and Mrs. M. J. Hopkins of W. 7th St. Neillsville.
