------ Ohlinger, Marian (22 MAY 1965)

Miss Marian Ohlinger and Bernard Wavrunek, both of Marshfield, were united in marriage Saturday, May 22, at St. Mary’s Catholic church, Colby.  The Rev. John Pinion heard their exchange of promises during the 12:30 o’clock nuptial mass.

Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Ohlinger of route 2, Colby, and Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Wavrunek of Neillsville are the parents of the bridal couple.

For their attendants, the couple chose friends: Miss Jan Drescher and Gene Williams of Marshfield, as honor attendants; Harold and Beverly Utke of Curtiss and Miss Ruth Blumenstein and Jesse Burt of Marshfield completed the wedding party.

The bride appeared in a floor-length gown of silk organza over taffeta with a bateau neckline and fitted bodice.  Lace appliques with seed pearl trim accented the front of the controlled skirt and the detachable lace monk’s cape was outlined with silk organza.  An open crown pillbox of lace with seed pearl trim held her bouffant veil.  She carried a cascade bouquet with rounded by stephanotis and entwined with ivy.

Fan shaped bouquets of pink gladioli and button pompons with white streamers were carried by the bride’s attendants who were attired in Nile green acetate peau formals.  The floor-length gowns featured bateau necklines, empire waistlines and controlled skirts with a three tiered panel and bow in the back.  They wore matching floral headpieces with seed pearl trim and bouffant veils.

A wedding reception was held at Sportsmen’s Park and in the evening the new Mr. and Mrs. Wavrunek greeted friends there at a wedding dance.  Supper for the guest was served at St. Mary’s school gymnasium.

Abbotsford will be the home of the newlyweds upon their return from a honeymoon trip.  The bride is employed as a registered nurse at St. Joseph’s hospital and her husband is an orderly at the same hospital.
