------ Kieser, Muriel Edith (5 JUN 1965)

Miss Muriel Edith Kieser, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb G. Kieser of Abbotsford, and Warren Harold Puhl, son of Mrs. Adel Puhl of Colfax, pledged their vows of marriage Saturday, June 5.  The 4 o’clock ceremony took place at Christ Lutheran church, Abbotsford, with the Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiating, before the alter graced with two bouquets of orchid and white gladioli.

Pre-service organ music was provided by Robert Lee Benson of Abbotsford and included “Lord Jesus Christ Be Present Now”, “Air on G”, “God Himself is Present” and “O Holy Spirit Enter In”.  As a precessional he played “Processional of the Prophets” by Raelser and “Trumpet Voluntary in D” was the recessional march.

During the ceremony Herbert Juneau of New Lisbon sang “The Wedding Prayer”, “o Perfect Love” and “The Lord Bless You” with Mr. Benson as accompanist.

The bride was attired in a luxurious gown of peau de soie styled with long sleeves and a scoop neckline complementing the lace mock bolero.  The princess line of the skirt was accented at the back by a magnificent lace court train.  A double crown of pearls and crystals held her bouffant veil of sheer illusion.  She carried a prayer book on which there was an arrangement of phalaenopsis and stephanotis.

Attending her as maid of honor was her sister, Marjorie, and as bridesmaid, Miss Sylvia Puhl of Colfax, a sister of the groom.  The groom was attended by his brother, Richard, Eau Claire, as best man, and by Vernon Kressin of Colfax, a cousin, as groomsman.

Dennis Kieser, brother of the bride, and Quintin Quade, a brother-in-law, performed the ushering duties.

Floor-length semi-sheath dresses in orchid crepe were chosen for the bride’s attendants.  They were styled with elbow-length sleeves, scoop necklines and a lace Watteau panel.  A petal cloche in harmonizing colors held their bustle veils.  They carried colonial bouquets of orchid tinted pompons surrounded by white carnations.

Following the ceremony a reception was held and dinner served to 175 guests in the church parlors, after which the couple left on a honeymoon trip to northern Wisconsin.

Menomonie will be the future home of Mr. and Mrs. Puhl sometime in August after he completes summer school in St. Paul.  He will be an instructor in the chemistry department at Stout state university, Sept 1.  He is a graduate of Colfax high school in 1957 and of Eau Claire state college in 1961.  In August, 1964, he received his Masters in Natural Science from Highlands university, Las Vegas, and taught at Bruce the past year.

His bride was graduated from the Abbotsford high school in 1959 and has been employed as district secretary for the Abbotsford public schools.

Guests at the wedding were from Abbotsford, Athens, Boyceville, Colby, Colfax, Curtiss, Dallas, Eau Claire, Eleva, Kenosha, Madison, Medford, Merrill, Melrose, Menomonie, Milwaukee, Rib Lake, Shell Lake, Wausau, Wheeler, Neillsville, Mason City, Ia., Minneapolis, Minn., and St. Louis, Mo.
