------ Hund, Charlotte (30 APR 1966)

Lyle Blair of South Bend, Ind., the son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Blair, route 1, Abbotsford, and Miss Charlotte Hund, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Garland Hund, route 2, Columbia City, Ind., exchanged marriage promises Saturday, April 30.  The 3 o’clock ceremony took place at Laud Christian church, Columbia City, with the Rev. Harold Boruff officiating.  Traditional processional and recessional marches and “Because”, “I Love You Truly” and “Hawaiian Wedding Song” were offered as organ music during the ceremony.  Candelabra and palms and beauty vases of double white stock and pompons decorated the altar.

For her wedding, the bride chose as her maid of honor her sister, Miss Connie Hund.  Miss Christine Blair of Abbotsford, a niece of the groom, Miss Karen Ristau of Milwaukee, a sorority sister of the bride, and Miss Connie Workman of Mt. Prospect, Ill., were the bridesmaids.

Eugene Blair of Abbotsford was his brother’s best man.  Gary Koehler, a friend of the groom, and two other friends of the couple made up the wedding party.

Guests were seated at the church by two school mates of the groom from Eau Claire.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was attired in a gown of silk organza and imported chantilly lace.  The organza bodice was fashioned with a scalloped neckline touched with seed pearls and long lace sleeves that tapered to points over her hand.  The floor-length organza skirt was topped with an overskirt of organza edged with scalloped lace and swept into a chapel train.  A pill box of matching lace touched with pearls held her waist length French illusion veil.  She carried a cascade bouquet of bridal and sensation roses. 

Gowns of petal pink pure silk chiffon were selected for the bridal attendants.  They were styled with empire bodices detailed with tiny bows, oval neckline and elbow-length sleeves.  A bow topped the Watteau back panel of the slim floor-length skirt.  A forward petal pink chiffon rose with a courant veil as headpieces and cascade bouquets of deep pink and shell pink carnations completed their ensembles.

After the ceremony about 150 guests attended the reception in the church social rooms.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Blair left on a wedding trip to the Midwestern states and Columbia City, Ind., will be their home address.

The groom, a graduate of the Wisconsin state university, Eau Claire, is employed as a federal bank examiner with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.  His bride is presently attending the Wisconsin state university at Eau Claire.

Attending the wedding from Abbotsford were Mr. and Mrs. Herman Blair, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Blair, Christine and Carol, Gary Koehler and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Archambo.
