Kuechenmeister, Diane Marie (Marriage - 18 September 1971)

Miss Diane Marie Kuechenmeister and Michael John LaBarge exchanged wedding vows Saturday, September 18, at 12:30 p.m. at St. James Catholic Church in Vesper. The Rev. George Stashek officiated.

The bride is the daughter of Mrs. LaFae Kuechenmeister of Rt. 1 Marshfield, with whom she lived, and William Kuechenmeister of Arlington Hts., Ill. Mr. and Mrs. Louis LaBarge of Arpin are the parents of the groom.

For her marriage, the bride chose a long-sleeved, high-neckline gown of Chantilly lace over organza styled with a lace-tiered skirt and a matching train. The bouffant silhouette of the gown was complimented by a Chantilly lace mantilla veil. She carried two long-stemmed large white carnations centered with red roses as she was given in marriage by Garth Gray.

Mrs. DuWayne Kuechenmeister of Rt. 2 Marshfield was the matron-of-honor. Bridesmaids were Mrs. Joseph LaBarge of Joliet, Ill., and Miss Connie Burt of St. Peter, Minn. The bridal attendants wore identically-styled empire-waist gowns of avocado Chantilly lace over taffeta with matching mantilla headpieces. Each carried a single, long-stemmed yellow carnation. Brenda Smith was the flower girl and Kelly LaBarge was the ringbearer.

Joseph LaBarge, of Joliet, Ill., served as bestman. Groomsmen were DuWayne Kuechenmeister of Rt. 2 Marshfield, and Richard Kuechenmeister of Rt. 1 Marshfield, Eugene Erickson and Ray LaBarge acted as ushers.

Mrs. Viola Heller was organist and Greg Lang was the guitarist. Vocal soloist was Mrs. Lorraine Fekete.

A wedding reception was held at the Garth Gray residence. A 4:30 p.m. dinner at the Bali Hai Supper Club was followed by an 8:30 p.m. dance.

The new Mrs. LaBarge, a 1969 graduate of Marshfield Senior High School, has been employed in Marshfield. Her husband, a 1963 graduate of Auburndale High School, is employed as a truck driver for a Marshfield firm.

The newlyweds are living on Rt. 1 Marshfield. They will take a wedding trip to the eastern states later in the year.
