Vetterkind, Lila M. (30 JUN 1962)

Miss Lila Mae Vetterkind, 301 Spruce St., wore a gown of Chantilly Lace over tulle and taffeta, embroidered with sequins and pearls for her marriage to Wallace Leo Gwidt, N. Burek Ave., Saturday in St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Wausau.

A lace tunic featuring ruffles of pleated tulle and lace at the back fell into a chapel train. The bodice had a Sabrina neckline and long sleeves. Completing her costume was a queen crown securing a veil of French silk illusion; tear drop jewelry, a gift from the bridegroom, and a bouquet of red roses and feathered carnations.

She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer C. Vetterkind, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), and the bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John T. Gwidt Sr., N. Burek Av.

Mr. and Mrs. Philip Darnick and Mrs. Charlotte Hintze of Wausau, and Leonard Vetterkind, Thorp, friends of the couple, were the attendants.

Mrs. Darnick and Mrs. Hintze wore pink organza frocks accented huge poufs with bows and roses at the back. The lace bodices had scoop neckline and cap sleeves. They wore large picture hats trimmed with flowers and satin bows extending in long streamers at the back. Pink feathered carnations and pompons were in their colonial bouquets.

John Gwidt Jr., Brokaw, and Glenn Vetterkind, Thorp, brother of the couple, ushered guests to the pews for the 11 a.m. ceremony performed by the Rev. John Hodges.

Light pink orchids adorned the altar.

Dinner and an afternoon reception were held at the Moose Lodge, and dancing was enjoyed at Rib River Ballroom at night.

Mrs. Vetterkind was clad in a blue nylon lace over taffeta ensemble, and Mrs. Gwidt chose a powder blue lace jacketed dress. Each mother had a corsage of pink sweetheart roses and feathered carnations.

Miss Julia Lake, grandmother of the bridegroom, was an honored guest.

Following a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin the newlyweds will reside at 304 Spruce St., Wausau.

The bride and bridegroom are graduates of Thorp and Wausau Senior High Schools, respectively. She is employed at Marathon Bakery and he works at Marathon ? Company.
