Weix, Wanda M. (19 MAY 1963)

The bride was given in marriage by her father in the 4 o'clock ceremony performed at St. John of God Catholic Church, Chicago. The Rev.

The bride was attired in an ivory peau de soie gown designed with a scooped neck, short sleeves and detailed with lace applique on the bodice and down the front of the skirt. A pleat at the back formed a train to the full length skirt. Her five point fingertip veil was attached to a pill box with 3 flat bows. She carried a bouquet of orchids and Stephanotis.

The attendants appeared in identical aqua street length sheath dresses made with scoop neckline, three quarter length sleeves and detachable two tiered peplum overskirts.
