------ Calmes, Sandra M. (22 MAY 1965)

During a 12 o’clock nuptial high mass at St. John’s Catholic church, Wuerzberg, Saturday, May 22, Miss Sandra M. Calmes and Vernon O. Diers, both of rural Athens, exchanged marriage promises.  The Rev. Charles Schumacher officiated.

Mr. and Mrs. Norbert Calmes and Mr. and Mrs. Leo Diers, all of rural Athens, are the parents of the bridal couple.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was attired in a floor-length gown of silk organza with a removable chapel train which extended from the shoulders.  The fitted bodice featured a bateau neckline and the bell-shaped skirt was enhanced with re-embroidered alencon lace appliques at the waistline and skirt front.  Her bouffant fingertip veil was secured to a sparkled cabbage rose with small flowers and leaves.  Pink garnette roses and white pompons were combined in a cascade arrangement for the bridal bouquet.

Attending the couple were Miss Barbara Guralski and Norman Diers of Athens, a brother of the groom, and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Augustine of Kenosha, brother-in-law and sister of the bride.

Floor length formals of acetate peau in American beauty shade were worn by the bride’s attendants.  They were designed with a bateau neckline and had small bow trim at the front of the waistline and a Watteau back panel.  Matching double bow headpieces with bouffant veil and bouquets of white and pink tinted pompons completed their ensembles.

The festivities of the wedding day took place at the Trianon ballroom where a reception was held following the ceremony, dinner served at 4:30 o’clock, and a dance in the evening.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Diers are making their home at Athens, route 2.  Before her marriage, the bride was employed as a bank teller.  Her husband is a truck driver for Alton Zettler Construction, Athens.

Guests attending the wedding were from Minnesota, Chicago, Milwaukee, Wausau, Abbotsford, Merrill, Kenosha and Marathon.
