Dux, Marjorie Lou (15 JUN 1963)

Trinity Lutheran Church was the setting for the marriage at 1 p.m., Saturday, June 15 of Miss Marjorie Lou Dux, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Erwin Dux, route 2, Loyal, and Richard Dean Rohde, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Rohde, route 1, Greenwood.

The Rev. A.M. Moldenhauer officiated at the ceremony before the alter, decorated with red and white peonies and orchid lupines.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a floor length gown of Chantilace and nylon tulle, the molded bodice which was styled with a scalloped sweetheart neckline embellished with iridescent sequins and seed pearls, with long lace sleeves tapering to points over the wrists.  The bouffant lace skirt was highlighted in front by a tulle insertion with lace motifs embroidered with sequins and pearls, the skirt back being ruffled tiers of lace edged with tulle.  A crown of aurora crystals secured her bouffant butterfly veil of nylon illusion and she carried a bouquet of red and white sweetheart roses.

The bridal aides were Miss Sharon Dux, sister of the bride, as maid of honor and Mrs. Gary Oswald route 1, Greenwood, and Miss Peggy Welzien, as bridal aides.  Cynthia Noeldner, a cousin of the bride, was the flower girl.

The maid of honor and the two bridal aides wore aqua ballerina length dresses of satin peau with scoop necklines, “spaghetti straps” on the fitted bodices, slightly pleated bell skirts.  The removable jackets of the dresses were fashioned with cap sleeves and bows at the front of the jackets.  The flower girl wore a delicately embroidered white nylon organza dress with full floor length skirt, sash and rounded neckline.

Alan Rhode, route 1, Greenwood, brother of the groom, was the best man; Gary Oswald, route 1, Greenwood,  and Robert Dux, route 2, Loyal, brother of the bride, acted as groomsmen; and Randy Noeldner was the ring bearer.  Nathan Noeldner, and Gary Rohde, Colby, were the ushers.

“O Lord Most Holy” and “O Perfect Love” was sung by Misses Carol, Kristine, Beatrice and Helen Noeldner and Rev. Moldenhauer sang “The Lord’s Prayer”, accompanied at the organ by Mrs. Kenneth Voss.

A wedding reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents, followed by a supper which was served in the Fellowship Hall of the church.  A wedding dance that evening was held at the Silver Dome Ballroom.  Guests were present from Marshfield, Greenwood, Spencer, Madison, Mayville, Theresa, South Dakota; Milwaukee, Palmyra, Minneapolis, Neillsville, Abbotsford and the Loyal area.

The bridegroom graduated in 1959 from the Greenwood High School while the bride is a 1961 graduate of the Loyal High School, and has been employed by the Berg Equipment Corporation in Marshfield.  After a honeymoon trip to northern Michigan, the newlyweds will make their home on route 1, Greenwood, where he is employed on his father’s farm.
