Brekke, Bonnie Ann (Marriage - 27 October 1973)

St. Mary’s Catholic Church was the setting Saturday, October 27, at 2 p.m. for the wedding of Miss Bonnie Ann Brekke and David Wayne Bieneck. Vows were repeated before the Rev. Charles C. Brady. An afternoon reception and an evening dance were held at Bali Hai Supper Club.

The bride presented in marriage by her father, is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. E. H. Brekke of Neillsville. Mr and Mrs. Paul Bieneck, Rt. 3 Neillsville, are the groom’s parents.

A gown of ivory delustered satin complimented by a high neckline of Chantilly lace and styled with an empire bodice, Renaissance sleeves and lace-bonded circular skirt was chosen by the former Miss Brekke. Her chapel-length mantilla was also edged with lace. Ivory roses and baby’s breath formed the bridal bouquet.

Baskets of autumn-colored mums and baby’s breath contrasted with the green satin of the attendants’ gowns, fashioned with empire waist-lines and long, renaissance sleeves. Ivory lace trimmed the neckline and sleeve edges and formed square neckline insertions.

Bridal attendants included Miss Debbie Brekke as maid of honor and Miss Janice Miller and Mrs. Roy Bieneck as bridesmaids. Miss Jane Lee Brekke was the flower girl.

The groom was attended by Jim Konkel as bestman and by Roy Bieneck and Duane Bieneck as groomsmen. Bill Brekke and Laurence Ehlers, Dorchester, shared ushering duties.

The bride was honored at a prenuptial luncheon shower given by Mrs. Moritz Grasamke and Mrs. Edwin C. Yach at the Hotel Whiting, Stevens Point. Mrs. Clifford Zukowski, Mrs. Peter Rinka, and Miss Debbie Brekke were hostesses for a luncheon shower at the Hotel Charles in Marshfield.

Both graduates of Neillsville High School, the bride is employed in the county zoning department and her husband is an employee of a Greenwood firm. They will live in Neillsville upon their return from a wedding trip to St. Paul, Mn.
