Skoog, Ruth Evelyn  ( 08 JUNE 1946)


Mrs. Marie Seeman played the processional and recessional and Norma and Margaret Hendrich sang "Oh Promise Me" and "Jesus, Be Our Guide" for the wedding ceremony during which Miss Ruth Evelyn Skoog, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Skoog of Greenwood, became the bride of Melvin Edward Luchterhand, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Luchterhand of Spencer. The bride was given in marriage by her father.


The ceremony which took place at 3 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at Trinity Lutheran church here, was conducted by the Rev. J. C. Langholz. Ferns, carnations and bridal wreath decorated the altar for the double ring service.


The maid of honor was betty Jane Skoog, a sister of the bride, and the best man was Gerald Luchterhand,a brother of the groom. Bridesmaids were Winifred Martens and Inez Hoffman, cousins of the bride. Other attendants were Robert Luchterhand, brother of the groom and Joseph Ackerman.


The bridal gown was white satin, styled with a sweetheart neckline, a snug-fitting bodice buttoned to the waistline in the back, and fitted sleeves coming to points over the wrists. The full gathered net over satin skirt ended in a long train.


Her fingertip veil of fine illusion edged with shadow lace, was caught to her curls by a beaded crown, and she carried a bouquet of pink and white carnations and swansonia.


For something old she wore pearls her mother wore on her wedding day. She borrowed a white lace edged handkerchief with a small blue bow.


The maid of honor also wore white satin and a shoulder length veil and wreath of pink flowers. Her strand of pearls was a gift of the bride, and her bouquet was made up of sweetpeas and swansonia.


The bridesmaids wore blue and yellow satin, respectively, with net overskirts. They had wrist corsages of carnations and daisies and matching ribbon streamers and sshoulder length veils with floral wreaths. They also had gifts of pearls from the bride.


Ushers were Orville Luchterhand and Joel Skoog.


The mothers of the bridal pair had white carnations and swansonia corsages.


Supper was served to 70 guests at the home of the bride’s parents. White wedding bells, blue and yellow and white streamers, and spring flowers decorated the place. A bride and groom decorated wedding cake centered the table, which was trimmed with trailing arbutus, carnations and spring flowers.


A wedding dance was held at the Neillsville armory that evening, Art Luchterhand’s orchestra providing the music.


The couple then left on a wedding trip and will be at home to their friends after July 1 at Spokesville.


Guests from away were: Mr. and Mrs. Joel Skoog and son Vaughn of Prentice; Mr. and Mrs.  Carl Bauman and George Hofmann of Merrill; Mr. and Mrs Erwin Martens and family, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Hofmann and family, Mr. and Mrs. Elroy Schulze and family and Reinhold Hofmann of Owen: Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Bonikowski, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Breier and sons, Lester and earl, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Breier and Dorothy Brandt of Manawa; Mr. and Mrs.  William Luchterhand and children, Margie and Norman, of Marshfield; Mr. and Mrs. Edward Greeler and children, Betty and Ronald, of Neillsville; Harold Dahl of Granton, and Ione Morgan of Unity.


The Loyal Tribune joins their many friends in wishing them a long and happy journey through life.
