Mechelke, Bonnie Lou (27 JUN 1970)

On Saturday, June 27, 1970, Bonnie Lou Mechelke, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Warren Mechelke of Rt. 2, Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.), was given in marriage by her father to Jerome J. Becker, son of Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Becker, Rt. 1, Greenwood (Clark Co.), at the St. Anthony's Catholic Church of Loyal.

Officiating at the ceremony was Rev. Norbert E. King.

The bride wore a Chantilly lace and tulle bouffant white gown. A Chapel train fell from the shoulders. A pearl and crystal crown held the illusion veil. She carried a cascade bouquet of red roses, miniature white carnations and stephanotis.

The maid of honor was Miss Arlene Mechelke, Loyal, sister of the bride, and the bridesmaids were Mrs. Avis Becker of Loyal, and Mrs. Louis Becker of Rt. 1, Greenwood.

The attendants were seen in aqua chiffon over peau-straight with cage effect dresses and had Venice lace trim down the side, sleeves, and neckline. Their headpieces were cabbage roses trimmed with pearls and veil. They held a ball bouquet of pompons and miniature pink roses.

The best man was James Becker, Greenwood, twin brother of the groom. The groomsmen were Arnold Becker of Loyal and William Pagelsdorf, also of Loyal.

Ushers were Jack Mechelke and Allan Becker, Loyal.

A reception was held after the wedding service at the bride's parent's home, and supper was at the St. Anthony's Church basement. The wedding dance took place at the Silver Dome, Neillsville.
