Luchterhand, Charlene Fay (Marriage - 2 June 1973)

The marriage of Miss Charlene Fay Luchterhand and Gordon Dean Haggerty was solemnized Saturday June 2, at Zion American Lutheran Church in the Town of Grant. The Rev. Richard Eggen officiated at the 2 p.m. ceremony, which was followed by a reception at the American Legion Hall in Neillsville.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Earl Luchterhand of Rt. 1 Neillsville, and Mr. and Mrs. Merlin Haggerty of Rt. 2 Gays Mills.

The bride chose a high-waist A-line gown of lace over bridal satin fashioned with long, lace sleeves gathered into cuffs. The bodice was accented with beaded trim. She carried an arrangement of white and lavender orchids, white carnations and stephanotis, and yellow star flowers as she was presented in marriage by her father.

Mrs. Vernon Schreindl, Marshfield, was the matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Miss Carolyn Haggerty, Gays Mills, and Mrs. Dale Reinart and Miss Judy Reinart. Mrs. Schreindl’s lavender gown and the other attendants’ yellow gowns of flowered sheer over taffeta were styled with bodices and skirts gathered to the midriff and featured short, puffed sleeves and rounded, self-ruffle trimmed necklines. They carried baskets of yellow daisies and lavender baby’s breath.

Serving as bestman was Lyall Martin, Jr., Janesville. Groomsmen were Wayne Haggerty, Gays Mills, and Dennis Luchterhand and Jeff Luchterhand. Guests were seated by Glen Luchterhand and Lynn Haggerty, Gays Mills.

Soloist Lorilee Davidson sand “The Wedding Prayer,” and “The Lord’s Prayer.” Margie Schlinsog was the organist.

The new Mrs. Haggerty will be a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Stout of Menomonie where she is majoring in home economics education. Her husband, a vocational education major, will be a senior at the same school. Both have summer employment in Black River Falls; they are presently living in Merrillan.
