Mohr, Beatrice (Marriage - 23 May 1964)

 

Wedding vows were exchanged Saturday in St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Neillsville uniting in marriage Miss Beatrice Mohr, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Mohr of Neillsville, and Roy Quelle, Jr., of Rochester, Minn., son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Quelle, Sr. of Greenwood.  The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. Norman Lindloff.  Bouquets of yellow carnations and orchids adorned the altar.

 

Two hundred guests witnessed as the bride approached the altar with her father, who gave her in marriage. She wore a full length gown of silk organza over bouquet taffeta. The Basque bodice featured long sleeves and a Sabrina neckline.  From the bodice flowed a very shot bouffant skirt of silk organza adorned with appliqués of Alencon lace. Completing the attire, the bride chose a coronet of brilliant crystals and seed pearls to which was attached a bouffant elbow length veil of bridal illusion.  Her bouquet was a cascade arrangement of orchids and white roses, which harmonized with her bridal attire.

 

Miss Betty Jane Marden of Neillsville served as her maid-of-honor. Bridesmaids were Mrs. George Waller of Thorp, sister of the bride, and Mrs. Otto Kind, Jr., of Greenwood.

 

They were attired in orchid ballerina-length formals of nylon sheer organza over taffeta, featuring round necklines and cap sleeves. Their waistlines were enhanced b y cummerbunds from which cascaded nylon sheer over-skirts.  They wore hats of petals of orchid organza, trimmed with orange blossoms and pearl peps, from which fell face veils of orchid illusion. They carried cascade bouquets of yellow carnations accented with white.

 

Harold Mohr of Neillsville, brother of the bride was bestman. Groomsmen were Jerry Quelle of Greenwood and George Waller of Thorp.  Ushers were Loren Quelle, of Greenwood and Harry Ambelang of Neillsville.

 

Victor Lehman played the organ while Kendall Smith sang, "O Perfect Love" and "the Lord’s prayer."

 

A reception followed at St. John’s Lutheran School.

 

The new Mrs. Quelle is a former teacher and has been employed as a waitress in Marshfield the last year.  Mr. Quelle is an IBM operator in Rochester, Minn., where they will make their home after returning from a two-week wedding trip to Niagara Falls, and the World’s Fair.

 

Guests attending the wedding were from Marshfield, Rosendale, Brookfield, Eau Claire, Merrillan, Greenwood, Withee, Milwaukee, Thorp, Fredonia, Wausau; and Rochester, Minn.
