Description Black and white photographic portrait of Arthur Buchtel and Helen A. Wolf's wedding ceremony. Arthur and Helen are in the center of the photo standing in the apse in front of the altar. The priest is facing them and standing on a platform in front of and above the couple. Helen is wearing a white dress with lace sleeves and a high lace collar. Her full skirt appears to be made of chiffon. She is also wearing a tulle veil held in place by a white hat. Arthur is wearing a tuxedo with a light colored jacket and a black tie. He also has a rose boutonniere affixed to his lapel. Also visible in the photo are two altar boys and three bridesmaids with their backs to the camera, three groomsmen and an altar boy facing the camera with their backs to the wall. The couple was married at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Jordan, MN on January 28, 1956. There is no identification on the photo for the members of the bridal party but newspapers from Jordan and Shakopee list each individual and their relation to the bride and groom. Maid of honor was Mary Ann wolf, the bride's sister. Mrs. Loretta Wolf (bride's sister-in-law) and Katherine Buchtel (groom's sister) were bridesmaids. Douglas wolf was best man. The ushers were Leo Vierling (groom's brother-in-law) and Cyril Wolf (bride's brother). Two other brothers of the bride, Kenneth and Dennis Wolf were also attendants. There is a black stamp on the back of the photo which reads, "Photograph by The Werner Studio/ Tel. 95/ Chaska, Minnesota."
