Boie, Connette J. (24 SEP 1966)

Bouquets of yellow and white gladiolas decorated the altar of Our Savior's Lutheran Church on Sept. 24, 1966 as Miss Connette Jeannie Boie became the bride of Wayne Clifton Boucher.

The Rev. Carl Peters read the double ring ceremony at 2:00 p.m. Mrs. Dale Booth, soloist, sang "Wedding Prayer" and "The Lord's Prayer," with Mrs. Dan Nafzger playing the accompaniments and other nuptial music. Yellow satin bows marked the pews for the guests. Duane Boie, brother of the bride, and Larry Witt, a cousin, were the acolytes.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Norval Boie, Stanley and Mr. and Mrs. D.J. Boucher, Corpus Christi, Texas.

A lace floor length gown detailed with a Sabrina neckline, Basque waistline, and bouffant redingote overskirt was worn by the bride as she was given in marriage by her father. The chapel length detachable cape train was of lace with scalloped edges. Her crown of pearls and crystals held her full elbow length silk illusion veil and she carried a bouquet of yellow and white gladiolas.

Miss Janice Boie, Madison, was the maid of honor for her sister. Her primrose yellow silk organza sheath dress featured an empire waistline, green velvet trim, and small yellow flowers at the waistline. The coat over her dress was designed with a full Watteau back and her headdress was the wedding bell design with a full four tier forward style bouffant veil. Miss Susan Anderson, Madison, a friend, served as bridesmaid and was attired in an identical sheath dress. Each carried a bouquet of white gladiolas.

A/3c Thomas Sleight, Kingsville, Texas, was the best man for the groom. The groomsman was Arlyn Boie, twin brother of the bride. Seating the guests were Dale Boie, brother of the bride, and Roger Mathison.

A reception for 250 guests was held in the church parlors with the color scheme carried out in yellow and white.

Honored guests included the bride's grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Graham and Mr. and Mrs. Harry Boie, her great-grandmother, Mrs. Adolph Edwardson, and her godparents, Mrs. Jack Larson and John E. Boie, Milwaukee and Waukesha. Other guests were present from Madison, Milwaukee, Eau Claire, Thorp, Boyd, Merrill, Wausau, Sheldon, Dodgeville, Waukesha and Oshkosh, also Princeton, St. Paul, Rochester and Minneapolis, Minn.

The couple will be at home in Corpus Christi, Texas after Oct. 12. The bride graduated from Stanley-Boyd High School and from Madison Vocational School, and is a licensed practical nurse. The groom graduated from Roy Miller High School and attended Del Mar Tech School in Corpus Christi and is presently in the Air Force at Truax in Madison.
