Mech, Vicki Ann (5 OCT 1973)

Given in marriage by her father, Vern T. Mech, was Miss Vicki Ann Mech, in a 6:00 p.m. ceremony uniting her in marriage to Glenn Curtis Fields III, of Pittsburgh, Pa. Officiating at the ceremony was Rev. William A. Toohey, C..S.C. at Sacred Heart Church in the University of Notre Dame, on October 5, 1973. The groom is the son of Mrs. Glenn C. Fields, of Pittsburgh, Pa.

Purple, lavender, hot pink and turquois flowers decorated the altar of the church, as the bride was seen in a gown of English net, appliques with French Alencon lace, hand beaded in seed pearls. The lifted bodice was high necked with long fitted sleeves and slim A-line skirt, which flowed softly to a full chapel train. The bride wore a picture hat of matching lace accented at the back with a full bow of pure silk illusion. She carried a natural bouquet of orchids and baby's breath.

Matron of honor was Diane Derfler Kadish of Buffalo, New York, and the bridal attendants were Krisan Kay Hug, Loyal, Wisconsin, Candace Fields Scanlon, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Patricia June Cervelli, South Bend, Indiana.

The bridesmaids' gowns were long purple velvet, with long sleeves. The gowns featured velvet hoods lined in ivory satin and they carried a bouquet of hot pink roses, purple, lavender, and turquoise flowers.

Best man for Mr. Fields was J. Christian Ebert, Pittsburg, Pa. Ushers were Michael Vernon Mech, Minneapolis, Minn., Geoffrey Scot Fields, Pittsburgh, Pa., Charles A. Digrutollo Mars, Pittsburgh, Pa., and Robert J. Austen, Pittsburgh, Pa.

The Ramada Inn was the setting for a sit down dinner and dance, following the ceremony.
