Miller-Behlow Wedding Is Held Saturday Afternoon
In 3 o'clock rites Saturday afternoon at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church,
Town Wilson, Miss Marion Miller and Arlin E. Behlow pledged nuptial vows
before the Rev. Waldemar Stoehr.
Palms and two arrangements of lavender gladioli and pompons were used in the
floral setting for the ceremony which joined the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Marlin Miller, R. 1, Oostburg, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Behlow Sr.,
R. 1, Sheboygan Falls.
Nuptial music was furnished by Miss Shirley Schukow who sang a solo, "The
Lord's Prayer," and joined Miss Jean Schukow to present the duet, "The Lord
Is My Shepherd." Mrs. Anthony Gartmann was organist for the service.
Presented in marriage by her father, the bride appeared in a gown designed
with a lace bodice and featuring large panels of embroidered nylon tulle at
front and back of the skirt which ended in a cathedral train. Tiers of the
tulle, edged in rosepoint lace, were seen at the sides. Shirred puff sleeves
and two rows of rosepoint lace at the boat neckline were other bodice
details. A halo of Chantilly lace and pleated tulle ruffles trimmed with
sequins and pearls was worn and held the veil of bridal illusion.
A white Bible, to which a white orchid with lavender lip stephanotis and tiny
bluebirds were attached, was carried by the bride.
Mrs. Richard Hoffmann, cousin of the bride, was matron of honor, and her
dress was fashioned of white starched lace over lilac taffeta with a full
skirt and cummerbund of lilac taffeta caught in a bow at the back. The frock
featured a scoop neckline, and the headpiece worn with the ensemble was a
flower-trimmed creation of lilac which held the circular veil.
Bridesmaids were Miss Mary Kruschke, Miss LaVerne Giese, cousin of the
bridegroom, and Judy Sterling, another cousin of the bridegroom, in a junior
role. All wore dresses identical to that of the honor attendant, and carried
natural reed arm baskets holding deep lilac daisy pompons with yellow
centers, lacy greens and contrasting bows.
Richard Hoffmann served as best man, assisted by Jerry Loersch and Thomas
Hertensteiner as groomsmen. Richard Miller, brother of the bride, was a
junior groomsman with Merlin Behlow, brother of the bridegroom, and Kenneth
Moenning, cousin of the bride , as ushers.
Dinner was served later at the Town House for 43 guests, followed by a
reception at Town Wilson Hall for 500 well-wishers.
Washington, D.C. and other places of interest in the East are on the
itinerary for the wedding trip, and after May 30, the couple will be at home
at 1640A S. 12th St.
The bride is a graduate of Oostburg High School in 1955, and is employed by
Rammer Insurance agency. Her husband, a Sheboygan Falls High School alumnus,
works at Kohler Co.
Guests came for the nuptials from Milwaukee, Chicago, Random Lake, Newton,
