Wichman, Judith Jean (Marriage - 28 July 1962)


Miss Judith Jean Wichman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Orville Wichman of Loyal, and Donald James Schmidt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Schmidt of Spencer, were married Saturday in St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Loyal in a double ring ceremony performed by the Rev. Fr. Norbert E. King.  Blue tinted gladioli and white pompons and carnations adorned the altar.


Orville Wichman escorted his daughter to the altar. She was attired in a floor length gown of silk organza styled with a full bouffant skirt with front and back panels that cascaded into a chapel train of embroidered organza.  The fitted bodice of imported silk organza was fashioned with a portrait neckline with pearls and embroidery detail.  A fingertip veil of bridal illusion was held by an open crown of pearls and crystals.  She carried a white prayer book topped with a white orchid.


Mrs. Jerome Schmidt of Minneapolis, Minn., attended the bride as matron of honor.  Bridesmaids were Miss Evelyn Schmidt, Spencer and Mrs. Allen Quast, Whitewater.


Attending the groom as best man was Jerome Schmidt of Minneapolis, Minn., Groomsmen were John Schultz, Spencer, and Michael Hofenbreadt, Milwaukee.  Ushers were Larry Waldhauser, Menomonee Falls, and Andrew Schmidt, Jr., Milwaukee.


A dinner for 300 guests was served in the church parlors with a reception later at the home of the bride.


The bride is a 1959 graduate of the Loyal High School and Luther School of Nursing in Eau Claire.  She will be employed beginning in September in Marshfield. The groom was graduated from the Loyal High School in 1952 and is employed in a wrecking yard in Loyal.  On their return from a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin, Mr. and Mrs. Schmidt will reside (missing lines.)
