Kuester, Barbara Ann (Marriage - 18 July 1970)

Miss Barbara Ann Kuester, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Kuester of Rt. 3 Neillsville, was united in marriage to Bruce Wayne Opelt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Opelt of Rt. 2 Neillsville, July 18 at 2 p.m. The service was performed in the United Church of Christ in Neillsville, with the Rev. Gale Wolf in charge.

The bride wore a floor-length, A-line gown in Edwardian style, of imported rayon organza over taffeta with Venetian lace on the bodice and around the detachable Watteau train. A bouffant veil fell from a face framer Camelot of Venetian lace. She carried an arrangement of yellow roses and daisies, as she was escorted to the altar by her father.

Miss Sharon Lueck was maid-of-honor, and Miss Debra Ayers, Mrs. Walter Quicker and Mrs. Harold Eddy were bridesmaids. They wore yellow sheer marquisette-over-linen material dresses, with green ribbon trim down the back. They carried baskets of yellow and white daisies.

Steve Opelt was bestman. Randall Opelt, Walter Quicker and Harold Eddy were groomsmen. Usher was David Opelt.

Miss Mary Peters sang, accompanied by Mrs. Jess W. Scott.

A supper was held at the American Legion Hall and a reception was held at the bride’s home. A dance was held later at the Silver Dome.

The bride graduated from Neillsville High School May 28. The groom attended the same high school. They are making their home on Rt. 3, Neillsville where he is engaged in farming.
