Helms, Carol C. (2 JUN 1962)

Miss Carol Christine Helms became the bride of Garth LaRene in a ceremony which took place at the First English Lutheran Church in Wausau at 4 p.m. Saturday, June 2, 1962. The couple, both of Wausau, are the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Everett Helms, Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.), and Mr. and Mrs. Peter LaRene, Tomahawk.

Rev. Donald Annen officiated while Mrs. Russell Beam of Wausau sang “Because and “The Lord’s Prayer.” She was accompanied by the bride’s cousin, Jean Noeldner.

The bride was attired in a traditional bridal gown in floor length with brush train of pure silk organza over white faille taffeta. The molded bodice was styled with a scoop neckline appliqued with peau d’ange lace. The short sleeves delicately gathered at the sides and she wore long gloves of silk taped to points over the writs where they were secured with dainty silk covered buttons. The very bouffant skirt was styled with an appliqued panel using the peau d’ange lace.

Her bridal veil of imported English silk illusion in fingertip length was secured to a dainty Swedish coronet of sequin braid with braid loop motifs centered at front with cut crystal spikes. She carried a cascade of yellow sweetheart roses and white daisies.

Attending the bride was Barbara Magrecke of Wausau, who wore a ballerina length dress of pure silk aqua. The fitted bodice was styled with a scoop neckline and short sleeves with a very full shirred skirt. The skirt’s back was detailed with a double panel pouf trimmed with rolled silk roses and dainty bows. She wore a circular cap styled after mums with tiny sequins sprayed over the petals to which were secured a short circular halo veil dyed to match the color of her dress. She carried a basket of yellow sweetheart roses and white daisies.

The mother of the bride wore a blue floral dress of nylon taffeta with white accessories. Each was presented with a corsage of yellow carnations and white mums.

Best man was David Helms, a brother of the bride from Loyal.

Brothers of the couple, James Helms of Loyal and Paul LaRene of Tomahawk, were ushers.

A 7 o’clock reception was given at the Moose Lodge and a supper was served at 6 o’clock at Penny’s Supper Club at Wausau for the bridal party.

The groom is a graduate of Tomahawk High School and the Wausau Technical Institute. The new Mrs. LaRene is a graduate of Loyal High School and Wausau Technical Institute.

Following a honeymoon through northern Wisconsin and upper Michigan, the couple will make their home in Wis. Rapids, the groom being employed there by the Kellogg Lumber Co. as a draftsman and estimator. The bride is a former clerical employee at St. Mary’s Hospital, Wausau.
