Blazel, Edith M. (6 AUG 1946)

Peach and white made up the color scheme used for the wedding at St. Ann’s Church, Stanley, Wis., and the following reception at her parent’s home on Tuesday, Aug. 6, 1946 when Miss Edith Marie Blazel and Clifford R. Heiser were united in marriage. The bride chose as her wedding day the 33rd wedding anniversary of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Blazel. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Mike Heiser of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.).

Rev. Paul Pitzenberger performed the double ring ceremony at a nuptial mass at 9:30 o’clock.

Miss Margaret and Ray Molling sang "A Message From the Sacred Heart" at the offertory and "O Lord I Am Not Worthy" at the communion, accompanied at the organ by Mrs. Clarence Thorpe, organist, who also played Lohengrin’s Wedding March.

The bride wore a white gown of ninonette over taffeta.

The fitted bodice had a rounded yoke trimmed with designs in tiny pearls and three-quarter length push up sleeves and the full skirt fell entrain. Her lace edged fingertip veil was held in place with a beaded tiara. Her jewelry was pearl earrings; the bridegroom’s gift and her bouquet was of white roses, lilies and gardenias.

Mrs. Pat Jordan, as matron of honor, and Miss Bernice Drilling, as bridesmaid, wore identical gowns of white net over peach taffeta with white blusher veils. Their bouquets were peach colored gladioli and white baby breath tied with peach satin ribbon. Both wore rhinestone earrings, gifts of the bride.

The groom, wearing a blue suit, and his attendants, Wallace Blazel, brother and of the bride, and Pat Jordan, wearing brown suits, all had white carnations boutonnieres.

Mrs. Blazel witnessed her daughter’s marriage wearing a brown suit with matching brown accessories and both wore corsages of pink carnations.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents. Covers were laid for 75 guests for the wedding dinner. Cut flowers in peach, blue and white decorated the home and tables. A three-tiered wedding cake and lighted tapers adorned the bride’s table.

A wedding dance was held at Mileaway in the evening.

Mrs. Heiser, since her graduation from Stanley High School with the class of 1944 has been employed at the Blue Moon, Thorp. The groom was discharged in May after two years of service, one year of which was overseas.

After a brief honeymoon, Mr. and Mrs. Heiser will be at home with the groom’s parents at their farm home near Thorp.
