St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, Wisconsin Rapids, was the setting for the wedding of Miss Patricia Ann Bymers, 454 Woodland Dr., Wisconsin Rapids, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Bymers, Wisconsin Rapids, and Ronald Dale Meinhardt son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Meinhardt, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), on Saturday, July 14, 1973, at 2:30 p.m.

The bride was given in marriage by her father, and chose a candlelight white gown of peau de soie, organza and French lace, which was designed by the bride and made by her mother. The bride carried a colonial bouquet of white daisies, pink rosebuds and baby's breath.

They wore long ice blue empire wasted gowns with matching blue picture hats. They carried colonial bouquets of white carnations, blue pompoms, pink and white daisies and baby's breath.

A garden reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, and was followed by a supper and dance at the Knights of Columbus Hall, Wisconsin Rapids.
