Lautenbach - Catlin Nuptials Performed Here 

   Rochelle C. Lautenbach and Richard A. Catlin, of Loyal, repeated marriage vows during a candlelight ceremony on Christmas evening in Trinity Lutheran Church, Loyal. The Rev. John Pfohl performed the double-ring nuptials in a setting of pine, poinsettia and holly.

   During the ceremony Bill Antholz sang "I’ll Walk Beside You" and "The Lord’s Prayer" accompanied by Miss Jan Jacobson. Both are students at Wisconsin State College, Eau Claire.

   The bride’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Lautenbach, Loyal, and the groom is the son of Mrs. Ann Catlin and the late Perle Catlin, Loyal.

   The bride was attired in a floor length gown styled with a snug bodice of chantilly lace featuring long sleeves, a pointed collar and a row of buttons down the front. The bouffant skirt was fashioned of layers of nylon tulle over taffeta. Her fingertip veil of imported Swiss illusion fell from a head-piece of chantilly lace. Her bouquet was a white orchid surrounded by red rose buds.

   Mrs. Richard Sweeney, Kalamazoo, Michigan, sister of the bride, served as honor attendant and Mrs. Eugene Colby, Loyal, was bridesmaid. Both were attired in waltz length gowns of red velvet, styled with a fitted bodice, three quarter length sleeves and a full skirt. They carried bouquets of red roses surrounded by white pompoms.

   Carrol Catlin, Milwaukee, served his brother as best man & Richard Sweeney, Kalamazoo, Michigan, was groomsman.

   Ushers for the ceremony were Eugene Colby, Loyal, Melford Catlin, Milwaukee, and Vern Catlin, Rhinelander.

   The mother of the bridge chose a forest green dress and wore a corsage of yellow rose buds. The bridegroom’s mother wore a navy blue dress with a corsage similar to that worn by the bride’s mother.

   The bride and groom are graduates of the Loyal High School & are now students at Wisconsin State College at Eau Claire. The bride attended Western Michigan College at Kalamazoo, Michigan and will be a June graduate from Wisconsin State College, Eau Claire.
