Bieneck, Iris (Marriage - 3 July 1965)


Miss Iris Bieneck of Rt. 3, Neillsville and Harlan Bemis of Humbird were married Saturday in a 1:30 p.m. double ring ceremony in St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Neillsville.


Parents of the newly-married couple are Mr. and Mrs. Paul Bieneck of Rt. 3, Neillsville, and Mr. and Mrs. Percy Bemis of Humbird.


The Rev. Bernard T. Kelly heard their exchange of nuptial vows, and Ellis Wall sang, "PO Perfect Love" and "The Wedding Prayer."  He was accompanied by Mrs. Virginia Gassen.


For her wedding the bride was attired in an elaborate gown of imported silk organza and scalloped, hand-clipped lace over bridal taffeta. The bodice featured a scalloped neckline trimmed with lace and sequins and long, tapered sleeves of silk organza coming to a point at the wrists. A very full bouffant skirt was attached to the Basque waistline. The two-tier skirt of silk organza was accented by garlands of hand-clipped lace gathered in the front and back by cabochon silk roses.  A chapel train extended from the skirt. A cloud veil of elegant bridal illusion was attached to an ornate headpiece of roses and satin leaf sprays. She carried a cascade arrangement of white roses and stephanotis, centered with a lavender orchid.


The bride’s attendants were Mrs. Lila Johnsrud, a sister, of La Crosse, as matron of honor.  Bridesmaids were Carol Ebert of Neillsville and Sharon Adler of Eau Claire.  The attendants wore formal gowns of orchid lace and nylon over taffeta. Their dresses featured "V" necklines, slim waists and sheath skirts highlighted by a trim of white daisies. Their headpieces were orchid fabric roses of silk organza trimmed with lily-of-the-valley to which was attached a bustle veil of orchid illusion.


Ushers were James Johnsrud of La Crosse and Roy Hefty of Humbird.  Donald Mayer of Humbird was the best man. Groomsmen were Roy Bieneck of Neillsville and Stanley Adler of Eau Claire.


A wedding reception was held in the American Legion Hall.


Following the ceremony the couple left on a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin. They will reside in Humbird after July 10; Mr. Bemis is employed by a cranberry company.  Mrs. Bemis, is a graduate of Neillsville High School, is employed by the Clark County Welfare Department.
