Popp, Esther (Marriage - 5 Sept. 1942)

Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Fenske have returned from a wedding trip in northern Wisconsin and are now at home on the farm of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Popp, Marshfield, Route 3. Mr. Fenske is employed in the Mellenthin cheese factory.

On Sept. 5, Miss Esther Popp, of Marshfield, became the bride of Clarence Fenske, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Fenske, in a ceremony performed in the Immanuel Lutheran church in Marshfield. The Rev. G. M. Krueger read the vows at 2:00 o’clock, Saturday afternoon.

The flower girl, Jacqueline Popp of Athens, dressed in white and the ring bearer, Arthur Hermanson, of Milwaukee, preceded the bride to the altar. The bride’s gown of white ninon and Chantilly lace was styled with sweet heart neck line, leg o’mutton sleeves and a long train. Her long veil and the illusion veil were held by a head dress of seed pearls. A heart shaped locket, the gift of the groom, and an arm bouquet, of white gladioli, completed the bride’s ensemble.

Attending her as matron of honor was her sister, Mrs. Clara Hermanson of Milwaukee, Miss Myrtle Wilhelmi, Abbotsford, and Miss La Vera Fenske, sister of the groom, were bridesmaids. Their frocks were of peach, blue and yellow ninon, respectively, made with tight bodices, full lace edged skirts and puffed sleeves. They had matching veils held with natural gladioli and they carried arm bouquets of the same flowers. All wore heart shaped lockets, gifts from the bride.

Edwin Fenske, brother of the groom, and Arthur Popp, brother of the bride, were the groom’s attendants.

During the ceremony, the song, "O, Perfect Love," was sung by the church organist.

A 6:00 o’clock dinner for 75 guests at the home of the bride’s parents was followed by a wedding dance at Bakerville. For the wedding reception at the home, streamers of white, peach, blue and yellow were used. A large cake and tall candles formed the center piece of the table on which sprays of variegated vine and fresh flowers were laid.

Among the guests from away were: Mr. and Mrs. Albert Fenske, Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Wilhelmi, daughter, Myrtle, Mrs. John Bremer, son, John, Abbotsford; Mr. and Mrs. Art Bremer and Miss Elsie Bremer, Mr. and Mrs. Hilmer Hermanson and family, Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. Wilbert Maaze and Mr. and Mrs. Emil Neuman and family, Oconomowoc; Mr. and Mrs. Herman Fenske, Gillett; Mr. and Mrs. Herman Wallner and son, Charles, Sanger, Calif., Mr. and Mrs. William Schneider and family, Medford; Ed Popp and family, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Borke, Mr. and Mrs. Ludwig Wiesner and daughter, Anne, Athens; and Mr. and Mrs. Francis Jaronski, Wisconsin Rapids.
