St. Thomas Catholic Church in Milan (Marathon Co., Wis.) was the site for the wedding of Maxine Schaefer of route 1, Abbotsford, and Bryce Luchterhand of route 1, Unity.

The Rev. Dennis Lynch officiated at the rite. Alex Ellenbecker, uncle of the bride, was organist, and Debra Luchterhand was the vocal soloist. Guitarist was Jeanne Burger.

The groom was attended by Dan Washington of Gillette, New Jersey, and Joseph Burger, route 3, Athens, a cousin of the bride. Steve Pederson, Loyal, and John Schaefer, Abbotsford, were the ushers.

The bride's gown of lace and organza over taffeta with chapel train featured a molded empire bodice accented with sequins and ruffles.

The A-line skirt was adorned with a beaded lace appliqued redingote. Her chapel veil was attached to a rhinestone tiara. She carried a bouquet of assorted pompons.

The bridal attendants wore gowns of mint green nylon sheer over taffeta. They were designed with high waistlines and demi-bell skirts. Floral headpieces held their jet veils, and each carried a bouquet of yellow daisies.
