Wehrman, Virginia Mae (15 MAY 1954)

Gordon Louis Gehrt, Greenwood, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Gehrt, Neillsville, claimed as his bride, Miss Virginia Mae Wehrman, Greenwood, daughter of Otto Wehrman, Loyal, at a 2 o’clock nuptial service Saturday afternoon, May 15, at Zion Evangelical and Reformed Church, Greenwood.

Robert Unger sang “Oh Promise Me” and “The Lord’s Prayer” during the double-ring ceremony at which the Rev. Charles Koch was the officiant.  The church was decorated with yellow and white spring flowers for the occasion.

A floor length frock, white net over satin, was selected by the bride. A sequin trimmed Peter Pan collar topped the lace bodice of the gown, which had lace sleeves.  Lace inserts adorned the skirt in the front and at the sides. The sequin theme was repeated on the crown to which the fingertip veil was attached.  White rosebuds were fastened in the streamers, falling from the bridal bouquet, yellow roses surrounding a white orchid.

Attending the newlyweds were Mr. and Mrs. Albert Wehrman, Loyal, brother and sister-in-law of the bride, as best man and matron of honor, respectively, and Mr. and Mrs. Evertt Gehrt, Loyal, cousin of the groom, the groomsman and bridesmaid, respectively.

Mrs. Wehrman and Mrs. Gehrt were attired identically, the former in orchid and the latter in pale green.  The gowns were net over satin with lace boleros.  Each had a floral headpiece, and their bouquets were red roses interspersed with mums.

About 35 guests, members of the immediate families and close friends, were served a 4 o’clock supper that afternoon at the Albert Wehrman home at Loyal.  In the evening, a dance was held at the Silver Dome Ballroom.

The bride, a 1949 graduate of Greenwood High School, is employed at the Farmers Store in Greenwood, where she and her husband will make their home.  He is employed by the Fred Post Company, Owen.

Out of town wedding guests included Mrs. Steve Checky, West Allis; Miss Ida Wehrman, Mr. and Mrs. Arno Wehrman, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Tatalovich and daughter, Susan, and Leo and Henry Wehrman, Milwaukee, and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Gehrt, Wisconsin Rapids.

The newlyweds have returned from a several days’ honeymoon spent in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.
