Wachholz, Arlene D. (1949)


On Friday evening, March at a double ring candlelight ceremony in Lowry, Air Froce Base Chapel, Denver, Colorado, Miss Arlene D. Wachholz, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Wachholz of Westfield, Wisconsin, became the bride of Captain Jospeh S. Laboda, of Evelth {Eveleth] Minnesota, Chaplain Major Mouw officiating. The Wedding march from Lohengrin was played by Sgt. C. W. Mallock. Sgt. V. T. Crouse, sang “Because.”

The bride approached the altar on the arm of her father, attired in a colonial gown of white embroidered organdy. She wore a finger-tip veil edged with lace and fashioned with seed pearl headdress. Her bouquet was colonial centered with a white orchid surrounded by white sweet peas and red roses and with white satin streamers.

The bride’s attendant was Miss Josephine Laboda, sister of the groom, in a colonial gown of yellow marquisette over taffeta and with a yellow headdress. She carried a colonial bouquet centered with two brown orchids surrounded by yellow sweet peas, roses and satin streamers. At her throat she wore three strand pearls.

The grooms best man was Mr. Harold A. Wachholz of Memphis, Tenn., brother of the bride.

For her daughters marriage, the brides’ mother chose a suite of black gabardine and wore a deep pink cammelia [sic] corsage.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held for immediate friends and relatives at 1245 Detroit St., Denver, Colo., which following a brief honeymoon at Colorado Springs, will be the home of the newlyweds.
