Loe - Wiechers

The wedding of Miss Gretchen Marie Wiechers to Ralph Harvey Loe, Jr. of Seattle, Wash., was solemnized Saturday at 5 p. m. in First Presbyterian Church. Dr. Francis Ihrman read the marriage service for the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Benton Thomas
Wiechers, 1725 Wisconsin Ave., and the son of Dr. and Mrs. Ralph Harvey Loe of Seattle.

The bride, on her father's arm, came down an aisle marked with white huckleberry to a sanctuary banked with white summer flowers. Her gown was of white deluster satin and nylon tulle over bridal satin, with layers of tulle forming the full skirt and brush train. Satin leaves detai1ed the basque and were repeated on the skirt. A queen's crown of nylon tulle and seed pearls secured her fingertip veil of imported French illusion. She carried a cascade of butterfly orchids, white orchids and ivy.

Aides Wear Pink

Miss Suzanne Dederich, her maid of honor, and the bridesmaids, Mrs. Robert Norton, and the Misses Mary and Carolyn Loe, wore petal pink silk shantung, ballerina length and styled on princess lines. Bustle bows accented the full skirts. They wore matching half-hats of shantung and carried white bridal rings clustered with rubrum lilies, pink demure roses and ivy.

The bridegroom had Tony Callison of Seattle as his best man. The bride's brother, John Wiechers III, ushered with Budd Gregg and John Konnak.

Garden Reception

For the ceremony and the reception afterward at the Wiechers home, where a green and white marquee sheltered a garden setting of pink and white flowers, and Tommy Sheridan's trio played for dancing, Mrs. Wiechers chose a frock of sheer white with cut-out scrolls over pink silk organza and a pink cummerbund. She wore pink cymbidium orchids in her hair and a nose veil. Mrs. Loe, mother of the bridegroom, chose champagne-colored French lace, ballerina length, with which she had harmonizing accessories and champagne colored cymbidium orchids.

Home in Idaho

The newly married couple is driving west for a three weeks' trip before going to Twin Falls, Idaho, where they will make their home.

Young Mrs. Loe attended Grinnell College and Northwest School of Medical Technology where she was graduated as medical technician. Her husband's schools were Amherst and the University of Washington. His fraternity is Delta Kappa Epsilon.
