------ Weideman, Darlene Marie (24 APR 1965)

Christ Lutheran church, Abbotsford, was the scene of the wedding of Darlene Marie Weideman and Warren John Talcott at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 24.  The Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiated at the ceremony.

Parents of the bridal couple are Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Weideman, route 1, Abbotsford, and Mr. and Mrs. Arvid Talcott, route 1, Unity.

Attending the bride were Miss Janice Weideman, Menomonie, as maid of honor and bridesmaids, Mrs. Darrel Talcott, Minneapolis, and Miss Jane Weideman, New London.  The groom’s attendants were Darrel Talcott, Minneapolis, best man, and groomsmen Jerry Weideman, Abbotsford, and David Winkler, Stevens Point.  Ushers were Alfred Weideman, Abbotsford, and Gary Senner, Wausau.

For her wedding, the bride wore a traditional wedding gown of bombazine and rosepoint lace over white faille taffeta with a train.  The molded bodice was of lace, fashioned with a scalloped Sabrina neckline which was embroidered with seed pearls and iridescent sequins.  The long lace sleeves tapered to points over the wrists where they were secured.  The skirt was of bombazine and was very full.  The skirt front was edged with wide lace at the hemline, and had pickup accented with a flat bow and a large lace appliqué with sequin and pearl trim.  The pickup revealed lace tiers.  The train of bombazine was a fly-away Watteau panel from the back neckline in chapel length, edged with lace and trimmed with lace appliqués.  The bridal veil of illusion in bouffant was secured to a flower headpiece.  The flower had organza petals edged with pearls and was trimmed with Alecon lace appliqués with pearl and crystal embroidery.  Along the edge in front were pearlized sprays of beads.  She carried a cascade of white orchid, surrounded by pink garnette roses and stephanotis.

The bride’s attendant’s wore identically styled floor-length sheaths with overskirts of peau taffeta in powder blue.  The dresses were three-quarter length sleeves.  They had an empire effect accented with a bias band, trimmed with bead embroidery.  The overskirts were long and fell from the high-rise waist.  A bow trimmed the back.  Their hats were large flower blossoms of satin and sheer petals.  In the center were pearlized buds.  Pouf veils of illusion were attached to each powder blue hat.  They carried cascade bouquets of white and blue carnations, interspaced with salad roses.

The bride’s mother wore a two-piece champaign brocade dress with beige accessories.  The groom’s mother wore a beige, two-piece dress of lace over taffeta, with green accessories.  Both mothers wore orchid corsages.

Robert Benson provided the wedding music, playing “O, Perfect Love” and “The Lord’s Prayer”.

Following the ceremony was a reception in the Abbotsford city hall and a supper in the church basement.
