Schoenherr, Beverly Jeanette (Marriage - 8 June 1968)

Married in St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Neillsville June 8, were Miss Beverly Jeanette Schoenherr, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Schoenherr, of Rt. 3 Neillsville, and Richard Albert Nicolai, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Nicolai of Rt. 4 Black River Falls. The Rev. Norman Lindloff performed the double ring ceremony.

Miss Nancy Beyer and Linda Flynn sang, “The Lord My Shepherd Is” and “O Perfect love,” accompanied at the organ by Victor Lehmann. Approximately 200 guests witnessed as Mr. Schoenherr gave his daughter in marriage.

For her wedding the bride wore a traditional gown of Chantilly lace over net and satin. The fitted bodice featured long sleeves that came to a point at the wrist, and a scalloped neckline edged with sequin trim. The very full skirt was fashioned with an over-lay of lace that came to a point in the center front, and a scalloped hemline. A train of lace, with three tiers of lace ruffling at the bottom, was attached to the back of the gown with a bow. She carried a crescent bouquet of yellow roses with stephanotis and ivy entwined.

She was attended by Mrs. Marilyn Reinart, sister of the groom, of Merrillan. Her maid-of-honor was Miss Mary Slone of Neillsville. Bridesmaids were Miss Judy Jansen and Miss Debra Dux of Neillsville. The matron and maid-of-honor wore full-length gowns of georgette-over satin in blue. The bridesmaids wore identical gowns to the honor attendants in style, and yellow in color. Each carried a crescent-shaped bouquet of white and yellow daisy chrysanthemums, with a five-foot daisy chain connecting each braid. Each wore a picture hat trimmed in daisies.

Donald Quicker of Neillsville and Roger Reinart of Merrillan served as best men. Groomsmen were Herbert Schoenherr, Jr., of Rockford, Ill., and Edward Schoenherr of Neillsville, brothers of the bride. David Schoenherr of Rockford, Ill., nephew of the bride, was ringbearer.

Gloria Thoma, as flowergirl, wore a dress identical to that of the bride and carried an identical bridal bouquet. A crown of yellow rosebuds completed her ensemble.

A large, four-tiered heart-shaped wedding cake, baked by Mrs. Louis Dux, godmother of the bride, served as the centerpiece at the bridal table.

The bride is a 1968 graduate of Neillsville High School and for the last two summers has been employed as a clerk in Hatfield. Mr. Nicolai is a 1968 graduate of Wisconsin State University - Eau Claire. He will teach algebra and geometry in Colby High School next fall. Mr. and Mrs. Nicolai are residing on Rt. 2 Neillsville.
