Miller, Annette Elizabeth (Marriage - 11 June 1960)


St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Colby was the scene of the marriage June 11, of Miss Annette Elizabeth Miller, Colby, and Donald G. Weichelt, Stratford.  Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Raymond E. Miller, Sr., Colby, and Mr. and Mrs. George Weichelt, Stratford.


The Rev. Howard A. Timmermann was in charge of the 2 o’clock ceremony.  Miss Karen Klessig sang, "The Lord’s Prayer" and "O Perfect Love."  Mrs. Vernon Boss accompanied her at the organ.


Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a lace and nylon sheer gown over taffeta with a brush train. The empire waistline had a bow detail with a lace bodice and long sleeves tapered to points.  The full, gathered skirt fell into a train which was later bustled.  Her silk illusion veil fell from a lace hat trimmed with seed pearls and iridescent sequins.  Her bouquet consisted of a loose colonial arrangement of pink roses and white carnations, mixed with stephanotis and ivy.


Mrs. Martin Busse, Abbotsford, sister of the bride, was matron of honor, and Miss Beverly Weichelt, cousin of the groom, was bridesmaid.  Miss Susan Kaye Busse, niece of the bride, served as flower girl.  The two bridal attendants wore ballerina-length dresses of nylon sheer over taffeta in pink and turquoise.


Bestman was Marvin Busse, Abbotsford.  Darrell Treankler, Stratford, was the groomsman, Norman Weichelt, Stratford, and Dennis Lautenschlaeger, New Holstein, were ushers.  Allan Ehrike, Stratford, was ringbearer.


A reception was held at the farm home of the bride.  Supper was served to 200 guests in the church parlors.  In the evening a wedding dance was held at the Colby Park pavilion.


Following a wedding trip to Alaska, the couple will make their home on the groom’s farm near Stratford.


Guests from out of town were from Colby, Unity, Stratford, Curtiss, Abbotsford, Dorchester, Collins, Marshfield, Spencer, Merrill, New Holstein, Hartford, Mayville, Granton, Edgar, Hewitt, Iron Ride, Minnesota and California.
