Bonnie Bogenschneider Weds Dr. Robert Block

Immanuel Lutheran church was the setting June 10 for the 3:30 p.m. ceremony uniting in marriage Miss Bonnie Bogenschneider, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Bogenschneider, R. 1, and Dr. Robert Block, son of Mrs. Vera Block and the late Theodore Block, Watertown. The Rev. William Lauterbach officiated at the double ring ceremony. The organist was Edward Hugdahl, Madison. Miss Doris Grube sang "The Song of Ruth" and "Wedding Benediction."

The bride was given in marriage by her father. Her full length gown of nylon sheer featured a bustle back effect, and was trimmed with Venice lace. A crown of matching material held her shoulder length veil of illusion.

Her sister, Mrs. Robert Binney, was matron of honor. Her gown of white organza was detailed with blue embroidery in floral design, and finished with a blue cummerbund and back streamers. The bridesmaids, Miss Carol Lauterbach and Miss Edith Block, were gowned identically in blue organza.

David Block was best man for his brother. Groomsmen were Martin Welch and Allan Bogenschneider. The groom, his attendants and the bride's father were attired in white dinner jacket tuxedos.

About 130 guests attended the reception and dinner held at the Hotel Rogers in Beaver Dam.

The young couple will live in Milwaukee where Dr. Block will be serving his internship at a Milwaukee hospital. Mrs. Block will continue her studies at the University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee.
