Meier, Irene (26 February 1977)

The Neillsville United Methodist Church was the setting for the 6 p.m. February 26, ceremony uniting Irene Meier and Gene A. Hohenstein in marriage. The Rev. William Noble was the officiating clergyman. The bride is the daughter of Charles C. Meier, who presented her in marriage, and Dorthea M. Meier of Neillsville. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Darrel Hohenstein of Rt. 2, Granton. Afterward, a reception was held at the American Legion Hall.

A bouquet of yellow roses and white carnations complimented the bride’s triple-tiered gown of white velvet trimmed with lace. Her cathedral length veil, edged-with a wide band of Chantilly lace, was held by a Camelot cap trimmed with seed pearls.

Bridal attendants were Lynn Goetz, maid of honor, Jane Kuhn, matron of honor, and Cheryl Chaltry and Irene Iwaszczenko, Marshfield, bridesmaids. They appeared in three-tiered gowns of royal blue velvet, two trimmed with yellow and white lace and the other two, with blue and white lace. Each carried a single, long-stemmed yellow rose.

Attending the groom were David Boyer as bestman and Ed Kuhn, Bruce Hohenstein of Janesville and Terry Hohenstein, of Granton as groomsmen. Charles A. Meier and Dale R. Hohenstein, Granton, served as ushers.

Jamie Kuhn was the ring bearer and Heather Meier, the flower girl.

Diane Havlicek sang “Wedding Son,” “The Lord’s Prayer” and “We’ve Only Just Begun.” Mrs. Iris Musil was the organist.

The bride was honored at a prenuptial shower given February 16 by Lynn Goetz, Cheryl Chaltry and Jane Kuhn.

The newlyweds, who will live on Rt. 1 Neillsville, are Neillsville High School graduates. The groom also graduated from District One Technical Institute, Eau Claire, and is employed by a local manufacturing firm. Their wedding trip was of Southern Wisconsin.
