Grammer, Beverly Ann (Marriage - 28 Dec. 1954)

Miss Beverly Ann Grammer of Wausau, Wis., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Grammer of Colby, and Clyde F. Peissig of Curtiss, son of Mr. and Mrs Franklin Peissig of Dorchester, were united in marriage at a ceremony in St. Mary’s Catholic church in Colby, Wis., Rev. Vincent Schwartz officiating, Tuesday morning, Dec. 28.

The bridal gown of chapel length was fashioned of Chantilly lace and tulle over white satin. The molded bodice was accented by a tulle yoke, and Peter Pan collar, both of which were outlined with white satin braid. Lace appliqué also pointed up the yoke edging. The long lace sleeves were secured at the pointed wrists by tiny covered buttons as was the back of the bodice. Lace appliqués and white satin braid encircled the bouffant tulle skirt. Her ensemble was completed by a finger-tip veil of illusion edged with scalloped Chantilly, and held in place by a carved tiara, encrusted with mother of pearl sequins and outlined with silver bugle beads. She carried sweetheart roses and stephanotis arranged around a white satin braided "lovers knot."

As her sister’s maid of honor, Miss Mary Dona Grammer of Colby, was attired in a gown of cranberry red velvet and nylon net over taffeta. A white spread V collared bolero jacket with cap sleeves was worn over the strapless bodice of velvet outlined across the top of ruffles of fine pleated net. Her full skirt was of graduated circular tiers of net to the floor.

Misses Marilyn Peissig of Chippewa Falls and Idelle Bowen of Curtiss, both cousins of the groom, wore gowns identical to that of the maid of honor, while all carried crescent floral pieces of white mums and holly leaves, with varied backgrounds. Their headbands contained sprigs of holly and berries.

Valarian Marchiniak of Antigo was chosen as best man and Dale Bowen, and James Peissig, both cousins of the groom from Curtiss, served as groomsmen. Raymond Barts of Abbotsford, cousin of the bride, and Robert Bowen of Curtiss acted as ushers.

Dinner for the wedding party and immediate relatives was followed by a reception at the home of the bride’s parents.

The groom is stationed at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., and the bride is employed at Employers Mutual in Wausau. Both are graduates of Abbotsford High School.
