Reichel, Cindy (Marriage - 22 February 1969)

In a double ring ceremony Saturday in the Mount Carmel Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, Miss Cindy Reichel became the bride of Orrin Benduhn, son of Mr. and Mrs. Manfred Benduhn of Milwaukee. The bride’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. John G. Reichel, also of Milwaukee. The groom is a grandson of Mrs. Marie Keller of Neillsville. The Rev. E. L. Ellingson performed the ceremony in a 6:30 p.m. candlelight service. Two hundred guests witnessed as the bride was given in marriage by her father.

Her floor-length A-line gown of white velvet was enhanced with Bishop Sleeves, edged with lace. Lace also was featured down the front of the gown. Her detachable train had its borders edged in lace. A velvet headpiece held her illusion veil. She carried a heart shaped bouquet of red roses and white carnations.

The matron of honor, Jeanette Fischer, and the bridesmaids, Joyce Fischer and Kris Olson, wore red velvet gowns trimmed with white maribu fur. Each carried a white maribu fur muff.

The groom’s attendants were Clarence Savafil, Jr., as bestman. Craig Pelnar, Tony Pipeto and Bob Brem were his groomsmen. Ushers were Wallace Fischer and Kenneth Savafil.

Curtis Reynolds and Jackie Fischer were the ringbearer and flowergirl.

On their return from a wedding trip to New York, Mr. and Mrs. Benduhn will reside at 6945 N. Teutonia Ave., in Milwaukee.
