Plummer, Harriet (7 SEP 1954)


Bouquets of white gladioli decorated the altar of St. Mary’s Catholic Church for the marriage on Tuesday morning, Sept. 7, 1954, at 9:30 a.m., of Miss Harriet Marie Plummer to Richard L. Laube of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.).  The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Margaret Plummer of 236 Lincoln St., Stanley.  The groom’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. Henry Laube, Owen.  Rev. Ralph Geissler performed the double ring ceremony in the presence of a large gathering of friends and relatives, the bride being given in marriage by her godfather, Nick Jankowski of Stanley.


The bride wore a floor length gown of white Chantilly lace by Calais and nylon tulle over satin.  The long full skirt of nylon was adorned with scalloped lace panels merging into a fan effect in the back.  Her fingertip veil of imported illusion net fell from a coronation crown of seed pearls.  Her jewelry was a pearl hocker, a gift from the groom.  She carried a shower bouquet of red roses with white stephanotis and ivy.


The bride chose Miss Beverly Olson of St. Paul, a cousin, to serve as her maid of honor.  She was dressed in a mint green ballerina gown of nylon tulle, featuring a strapless bodice with matching nylon tulle stole and she wore a mint green headpiece.  Her rhinestone necklace and earrings were gifts from the bride.  She carried American Beauty roses placed on a white lace fan.


The bridesmaids, Miss Anna Mae Gruber, Stanley, cousin of the bride.  Mrs. Bernice Potocnik, Owen, sister of the groom, and Mrs. Fern Laube, Owen, sister-in-law of the groom, were gowned in dresses identical to that worn by the maid of honor and carried identical bouquets.


Eileen Potocnik, Owen, a niece of the groom, as the flower girl, was attired in a dress of nylon tulle over taffeta, of shrimp color, with a matching headpiece.  Her dress was made by the bride’s mother.  Her gold cross and chain were a gift from the bride.  She carried a fan shaped basket filled with mixed garden flowers.


Donald G. Plummer, brother of the bride, was best man.  The gentlemen attendants were Edward Potocnik and Harold Laube of Owen.  The ushers were Leander Schneider of Stanley, and Virgil Bublitz of Owen.  Glen Bublitz, Owen, a nephew of the groom, was the ring bearer.


St. Mary’s Choir sang the music for the nuptial mass, with Mrs. Robert Theirl singing the "Ave maria."


Mrs. Plummer chose a dress of beige lace, with brown accessories for her daughter’s wedding.  Her corsage was of American Beauty roses.  The groom’s mother wore a deep purple crepe dress with black accessories and a corsage of yellow roses.


An 11:30 dinner for 150 guests was served at St. Hedwig’s Hall at Thorp, with a reception there beginning at 2:30 in the afternoon for over 350 relatives and friends.  The hall was decorated with green and shrimp colored streamers and bouquets of garden flowers adorned the tables.
