Becherer, Dorothy Ann (24 JUN 1967)

Saturday, June 24, 1967, was the date of the marriage of Miss Dorothy Ann Becherer, Oconomowoc, and Duane Wickham Berg, Eau Claire, at Concordia Lutheran Church at Eau Claire, with the Rev. Luther Wangen officiating.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Willard J. Becherer of Colby, and the groom's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Thilman K. Berg of Eau Claire.

The bride wore a peau de soie A-line floor length gown which she fashioned herself with the aid of Karen Davidson of Oconomowoc. It featured a detachable cour train, and re-embroidered Alencon lace appliques fashioned the long pointed sleeves. Her three tier silk illusion veil was held by a crown of seed pearls and lace.

She carried a cascade bouquet of lily of the valley and ivy, with a removable large white orchid in the center.

The maid of honor was a sister of the bride, Miss Marie Becherer. Another sister, Miss JoAnne Becherer, and Miss Myrene Rachu, were the bridesmaids.

They wore floor length yellow and white gowns with empire waist, elbow length sleeves, and back panels of yellow and white lace over yellow taffeta. The skirts were made of chiffon. They wore matching yellow headpieces and each carried cascade bouquets of yellow and white carnations.

James D. Berg was the best man for his brother, and the groomsmen were Robert K. Berg, a brother of the groom, and Stanley Lebaken, a cousin of the groom.

The bridal party was completed by Brenda Allen, a niece of the groom, who was the flower girl, and Timmy Lynn, a nephew of the bride, the ring bearer.

Seating the guests were ushers, Thomas J. Berg, a brother of the groom, and Adolph Becherer, a brother of the bride.

Following the ceremony a reception was held in the church parlors.

The couple is now at home at 3656 Tower Drive, Eau Claire, following a wedding trip to Canada and the New England states.
