Schmidt, Yvonne (Marriage - 25 November 1961)


Miss Yvonne Schmidt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Schmidt, Rt. 1, Neillsville, was given in marriage Saturday to Alvin Lezotte, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Lezotte, also of Rt. 1, Neillsville, in a double ring ceremony performed in St. Mary’s Catholic Church by the Rev. Fr. Bernard T. Kelly. The church’s altar was adorned with baskets of pompons.


For her wedding the bride wore a white floor length gown of lace over taffeta. The back of the full bouffant skirt was detailed with a fan of lace that cascaded into a chapel train. The front of the skirt was styled with many ruffles of lace, and the fitted bodice was enhanced by long, fitted sleeves and a scalloped neckline. A lace crown secured a fingertip veil. She carried a bouquet of red roses and feathered carnations entwined with green fashioned in the form of a cross.


The bridal couple was attended by the groom’s brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Holnbach. Ushers were Douglas Lezotte and Richard Schmidt.


Nuptial music was furnished by the children’s choir of St. Mary’s Church.


Members of their immediate families attended the dinner and reception at the Schmidt home.


The bride is a graduate of Neillsville High School and has been employed in Neillsville. The groom farms on Rt. 1 Neillsville, where they will reside on their return from a wedding trip into Illinois.
