Lori Sue Gobber Bride Of Randy Lee Miller

Lori Sue Gobber and Randy Lee Miller were united in marriage at St. John's Lutheran church in Tecumseh October 20. Rev. Donald Cooper officiated at the 5:30 p. m. double ring candlelight ceremony.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Gobber, Johnson, and Mr. and Mrs. Donald C. Miller, Tecumseh.

The alter area was bedecked with a dried flower arrangement on both sides. The 15 tiered candelabras were decorated with dried sheaves of reeds accented with plum ribbons. A heart shaped wreath of dried flowers decorated the unity candle table. Hurricane lamps with white and plum edged bows and bells marked the bridal aisle.

Judy Groirian, Brock, was organist and accompanied Susi VonBergen, Auburn, as she sang "The Wedding Song," "The Lord's Prayer," and "My Sweet Lady."

Lighting the candles were Janelle Wendelin, Lincoln, who was attired in a plum floor length taffeta gown, and Tom Leahy, Manhattan, Kansas, who wore a grey cut away tuxedo.

The bride escorted to the altar by her father, wore a white sheerganza gown over bridal taffeta. Her fitted bodice and Queen Anne neckline were trimmed with Chantilly lace that also accented her sheer Bishop train. Her smooth sheer skirt had a wide border trim of matching lace that traveled into a chapel train that had an inverted insert of tier upon tier of lace ruffles. Her ensemble was completed with a silk flowered and pearl trimmed halo that held imported illusion tulle in a waltz length. She carried a white crocheted handkerchief of her mother's beneath her arrangement of plum and grey dried flowers, and wore a pearl necklace and earrings, a gift from the groom.

Kay Heidzig, Johnson, sister of the bride, was matron of honor. Bridal attendants were Pam S. Ottemann, Butte, Sharon Pollard, Syracuse, sister of the groom, Pam Alexander, Auburn, and Jayne Ourada, Lincoln. They were gowned in floor length taffeta and carried arm bouquets of plum and grey dried flowers.

Michelle Heidzig, Johnson, niece of the bride, was flower girl and carried a white and plum crocheted basket which was made by the bride's maternal grandmother. Amy Pohlman, Tecumseh, served as ring bearer and carried a white crocheted ring pillow made by the bride's maternal grandmother. Both girls wore plum and white ruffled tea length dresses and flowered halos in their hair.

The groom was attired in a white tailed tuxedo. His boutonniere was dried plum and grey flowers.

Steve Miller, Tecumseh, brother of the groom, served as best man. Groomsmen were Steve Pietryk, Des Moines, Iowa, Chris Hutt, Spalding, Jim Parrish, Lincoln, and Terry Pollard, Syracuse, brother-in-law of the groom. They wore grey cutaway tuxedos with dried flower boutonnieres.

Ushers were Tim Gobber, Johnson, brother of the bride, Tom Heldrig, Johnson, brother-in-law of the bride, Doug Goracke, Tecumseh, Todd Leahy, Manhattan, Kansas, and Don Bareds, Lincoln. They also wore grey cutaway tuxedos with plum silk rose, boutonnieres.

Sue Gorcacke, Tecumseh, and Holly Gobber, Table Rock, were guest book attendants. Marcy Campe, Auburn and Tracy Clark, Sterling, handed out programs and rice.

Receiving gifts were Pam J. Ottemann, Johnson, Shirley Laflin, Tecumseh, and Debra Pugh, Johnson.

Mr. and Mrs. Eldon Bohling, Johnson, and Mr. and Mrs. Keith Hutt, Tecumseh, were hosts and hostesses.

A reception was held in the church basement. Mrs. Evelyn Greenlee, McLean, Virginia, aunt of the bride, and Mrs. Ruth Leahy, Manhattan, Kansas, aunt of the groom, served the wedding cake which was accented with Precious Moments bells and figurines. Mrs. Melanie Miller, Tecumseh, sister-in-law of the groom, served punch with Mrs. Todda Amther, Sidney, Iowa, serving coffee. Mrs. Pat Lampe, Auburn, attended the serving table. Janice Gerdes, Johnson, Linda Kuhlmann, Tecumseh, Donna Hahn, Nebraska City, and Lori Gerking, Brock, served the bridal table.

Following the reception, a dance was held in honor of the couple at the Johnson Legion Hall, with music by Mirage.

Mr. and Mrs. Donald C. Miller hosted a pre-nuptial supper and barn dance at the Arnold Gobber farm on October 19. Music was provided by a disc jockey from KFRX.

After a short wedding trip, Randy and Lori will reside in their county home outside Tecumseh, where Randy is farming and Lori will remain working in Auburn for the law firm of Cullen & Cain.
