Meyer, Judith (Marriage - 12 October
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
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.
