Beaver, Sylvia #2 (28 JUN 1950)


Christ the King Catholic Church in Spencer was the scene of a lovely wedding on Wednesday, June 28, 1950, when Miss Sylvia Beaver, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard J. Beaver Sr. of Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Jack N. Pickett, son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl N. Pickett of Spencer.  The Rev. Fr. Arthur Cramer officiated at the double ring ceremony.


The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose an entrained gown of white marquisette over satin, fashioned with a lace trimmed bateau neckline, fitted bodice and long sleeves that came to points over the wrists.  A tiara of seed pearls, rhinestones and bugle beads held her fingertip veil of imported French illusion edged with rhinestone studded lace.  She wore a rhinestone necklace, a gift of the groom, and carried a shower bouquet of American Beauty roses.


Miss Joan Searvogel, as maid of honor, was dressed in an aqua taffeta formal fashioned with a fitted bodice and hoop skirt.  Miss Audrey Picket, sister of the groom, and Miss Shirley Shupe of Marshfield, friend of the couple, were the bridesmaids.


They wore gowns of orchid dotted swiss and yellow taffeta, respectively.  Each wore a single strand of pearls and carried a bouquet of yellow roses and variegated carnations.


Attending the groom were Edwin Degenhardt of Loyal, cousin of the bride, as best man, and Robert Spry of Granton and Virgil Seefeldt of Spencer, as groomsmen.  Bernard Beaver Jr., brother of the bride, and Wayne Seefeldt, cousin of the groom, were ushers.  All the men wore light suits.


For her daughter’s wedding, Mrs. Beaver wore a light blue sheer dress, while the groom’s mother was attired in a green and white sheer dress.  Each wore corsages of roses and carnations.


Following the ceremony, a dinner and reception were held at the home of the bride’s grandmother, Mrs. John Ryan.  The home was decorated with yellow, orchid, aqua and white streamers, with a large wedding bell in the center.  A large wedding cake formed the centerpiece of the bridal table.  Dinner was served to about 100 guests.


Later in the evening the couple was honored at a wedding dance at Colby Park, Howard Sturtz and his Swing Kings providing the music.


The bride is a 1948 graduate of the Loyal High School, and the groom graduated from the Spencer High School.  They will reside with the groom’s parents, on their farm near Spencer.


Out of town guests at the wedding included: Mr. and Mrs. Ray Smith of Milwaukee, Mrs. Arthur Searvogel and family and Mr. and Mrs. James Ryan and family of Randolph, Mrs. Mary Sloper and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Schmidt of Waupun, Mrs. Johanna Madigan of Beaver Dam, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Pickett of Merrillan, Mr. and Mrs. C.R.
