Daellenbach, Margaret (Marriage - 12 Oct. 1946)

Miss Margaret Daellenbach, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Daellenbach, of Abbotsford, was given in marriage by her father, Saturday afternoon, Oct. 12, to Harold Papenfuss, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Papenfuss, of Abbotsford, Wis. The Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiated at the double ring ceremony at 2:30 o‘clock at Christ Lutheran church.

The choirs of the Dorchester and Abbotsford Lutheran churches combined to sing, "The Lord Is My Shepherd," and "O Perfect Love," with Herbert Juneau, Dorchester, as soloist.

The bride wore an entrained gown of ivory brocaded satin, designed with long sleeves, a net yoke, with drop shoulder effect, and small, satin buttons down the back. Her shoulder length veil was caught to a bonnet of net with a bead trim pearls. She wore a single strand of pearls, the gift of the groom and carried a colonial bouquet of red and white roses and baby breath.

Attending as maid of honor was Miss LaVern Hoffman, of Marathon, who teaches at the same school as the bride. She wore a simple frock of aqua velveray, made with a plain bodice and full skirt.

Miss Vangel Bobbe, of Abbotsford, was bridesmaid. Her frock of pink taffeta was also simply designed. Both attendants wore gold snake chains and ear rings, gifts of the bride. They wore a single white carnation in their hair and carried colonial bouquets of two shades of pink carnations and white daisies.

Richard Ziebarth, Marshfield, a friend of the groom, was best man. Richard Preller, Marshfield, also a friend of the groom, was usher.

The bride’s mother wore a black dress, and the groom’s mother wore a black and white printed dress. Their corsages were alike of red and white roses and daisies.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents where a color scheme of white, aqua and pink was carried out in the canopied streamers. Supper was served to the immediate families of the bridal party. A wedding cake, decorated with roses, and white candles formed the centerpiece for the bridal table.

The young couple greeted their friends at a wedding dance at Merry Ol’ Gardens on Sunday night. They left on a short wedding trip to northern Wisconsin.
