Hackel, Marie (Marriage - 8 May 1948)

Miss Marie Hackel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Hackel, town of Holton, became the bride of Arthur J. Hummer, town of Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Hummer, Athens, Saturday morning, May 8. The Rev. Raymond Schultz read the double ring ceremony before the 9:00 o’clock nuptial high mass, in St. Thomas’ Catholic church, Milan.

The bride, who was presented in marriage by her father, wore an attractive gown of heavy ivory slipper satin, detailed with a Bertha neckline in off the shoulder effect. It was styled with a sunburst basque waist, shirred bodice and full skirt and had a sweeping train. Her full length lace edged veil was held in place with a crown of pearlized orange blossoms. Her shower bouquet was composed of gardenias, deep pink roses and was tied with a large white satin ribbon and long satin streamers. The strand of pearls she wore was a gift from the groom.

Attending the bride as maid of honor was Miss Janet Baronsky. She wore a frock of pink marquisette over satin, styled with a sweetheart neck line, puffed sleeves, and full skirt. Tiny bows of pink satin decorated the sleeves and skirt.

Miss Cecelia Hackel, sister of the bride, Miss Mildred Hummer, Wausau, sister of the groom, and Mrs. Raymond Hackel, sister-in-law of the bride, were the bridesmaids. They wore identical gowns of blue and flowered head dresses to match their gowns. All wore pearl earrings, gifts of the bride, and carried Colonial bouquets of pink and yellow carnations, with ribbons to match their gowns.

Attending the groom, as best man, was Charles Hummer, brother of the groom. Raymond Hackel, brother of the bride, Benno Venzke and Alois Lang were ushers.

For the ceremony, the bride’s mother wore a navy blue dress, accented with a shoulder corsage of carnations and roses. Mrs. Hummer was attired in a powder blue dress and wore a similar corsage.

Following the ceremony a dinner for 35 immediate relatives was served at the home of the bride’s parents. The home was decorated with white, pink and blue streamers. The bride’s table was centered with a three tiered wedding cake, topped with a miniature bride and groom. A wedding reception was held in the afternoon, which was attended by 120 guests and in the evening a dance was held at the Trianon ballroom.

Guests were present from Marathon, Eau Claire, Milwaukee, Medford, Athens, Milan, Colby, and Abbotsford, Wis.

The bride is a graduate of the Abbotsford high school in the class of 1945 and has since been employed as bookkeeper at the Laabs Cheese Co., at Milan.

Mr. and Mrs. Hummer are now at home to friends on a farm near Athens.
