Miss Barbara R. Bird and David G. Boyer were married Saturday, August 23, in a 1;30 p.m. ceremony performed at Christ Lutheran Church, Chili, by the Rev. Everett Schleef. The couple greeted guests afterwards at a reception at the Wildcat Inn.

Presented in marriage by her father, the bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Bird, Rt. 1 Greenwood. Mr. and Mrs. Wallace Boyer, Rt. 1 Chili, ae the groom’s parents.

For her wedding, the bride wore a traditional white gown with bodice, fitted sleeves and ruffled hem of Cluny lace. The bib style bodice and cuffs were accented with a narrow ruffle of matching lace and flower appliques were scattered over the chapel length train. Tiny pearl-centered daisies bedecked the lace waistband and bodice of the gown. The bride’s Camelot style crown with its veil of sheer bridal illusion was bordered in lace and accented with lace appliques. She carried a round bouquet of blue, green, yellow and pink roses and carnations with baby’s breath.

Rainbow pastel shades of blue, green, pink and yellow, respectively fashioned the flounce hemline crepe gowns worn by the bridal attendants. They carried matching-hued carnation bouquets. Miss Yvonne Knoop was maid of honor, and Mrs. Richard Bird of Marshfield, Miss Pam Boyer of Chili and Mrs. Roger Buchholz of Greenwood were the bridesmaids.

Bruce Boyer served as bestman, with Richard Bird of Marshfield and Milton Boyer and Dixon Boyer of Chili as groomsmen. Guests were seated by Dennis Steltenpohl and John Pagenkopf.

Special musical selections included “For All We Know,” “The Lod’s Prayer” and “Wedding Song.”

The bride was honored at prenuptial showers given by Joan Buchholz and Yvonne Knoop and by Pat Bird and Mary Watson.
