Wehrmann, Bernadine (11 MAY 1963)

As Bernadine Wehrmann, 115 W. Wisconsin Ave., Oconomowoc, became the bride of James L. Treichel, 838 Villa St., Elgin, Illinois; she wore a gown of pure silk chiffon, fashioned with a princess-line bodice, dome shaped skirt with pleated back falling into a chapel sweep.  The scooped neckline and three-quarter sleeves were outlined with an imported Brussels lace.  Her bouffant veil was held in place by a silk-faced pillbox trimmed with small roses, and seed pearls.

The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Wehrmann, Loyal, and the son of Mrs. Emil Struck, Oconomowoc; were married in the First Congregational Church in Oconomowoc on Saturday, May 11 before an altar decorated with basket floral arrangements.  Rev. John Lepke officiated at the 2 p.m. ceremony during which Bonnie and Judy Wehrmann sang “The 23rd Psalm” and “Prayer Perfect”.  The congregational hymn was “Now Thank We All, Our God”. 

Attending the bride as maid of honor was her sister, Betty Wehrmann of Loyal.  Bridesmaids were Judy Palmer, Oconomowoc, and another sister, Sherri Wehrmann of Loyal.  They wore identically styled dresses of more intense shades of aquamarine.  Floral baskets and white accessories complete their attire.

A coat-dress ensemble of beige and pink with pink accessories was worn by the bride’s mother while a jacket-dress of peacock, complete the glove accessories was worn by the groom’s mother.

The groom’s attendants were Edward Meyer, Jr., Milwaukee, as best man; William Buenger, Oconomowoc, and Gene Reineking, Colby, a cousin of the bride as groomsmen.  Lawrence Wagner, Oconomowoc, a cousin of the groom and Arno Wehrmann, an uncle of the bride from Milwaukee were ushers.

Immediately following the ceremony, a reception was held at the American Legion Clubhouse in Oconomowoc and attended by relatives and friends from Loyal, Greenwood, Colby, Thorp, Milwaukee and Chicago, Illinois.

The bride, a graduate of Loyal High School and a 1960 graduate of the Evangelical Deaconess Hospital School of Nursing, Milwaukee, has been employed in Rogers Memorial Hospital, Oconomowoc.  Her husband, who was graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, with the class of l961, is a landscape architect presently with the Illinois Division of Highways.

After a wedding trip to the western section of the United States the Triechels will live in Elgin, Illinois.
