Marriage vows were repeated between Miss Loretta Marcella Wiese and Carlton Peter Pecher Saturday morning, April 20, 1963, before a nuptial high mass at 11 o'clock at St. Bernard's Catholic Church (Abbotsford). The Rev. Raymond B. Schulz officiated at the ceremony.

For her wedding, the bride chose a street length dress of Rachelle lace designed with a bateau neckline, lowered waist and short, set in sleeves and a gathered skirt over an orchid slipper satin slip. She wore a fingertip nylon tulle veil attached to a crown of lace and sequins. Her bouquet was an arrangement of orchids and white carnations attached to a lover's knot with white streamers.

Miss Kathleen Boris, Route 2, Athens, a cousin of the groom, was the maid of honor, and Miss Audrey Wiese, Abbotsford, sister of the bride, was bridesmaid.

They wore street length dresses made alike with pointed back and pleated skirt of Chiffon over taffeta.

Turquoise was chosen for the maid of honor and daffodil for the bridesmaid, and these colors were repeated with white carnations in the crescent shaped bouquets they carried.
