Archambo, Carol (Marriage - 27 Apr. 1957) 

Mr. and Mrs. John Reichersamer have returned from a honeymoon trip and are at home in Abbotsford. 

Their marriage took place Saturday, April 27, at St. Bernard’s rectory, with the Rev. Raymond B. Schulz officiating at the double ring ceremony at 1:00 o’clock. 

The bride, the former Carol Archambo, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Royal Archambo and the groom is the son of Mrs. Ethel Reichersamer. 

For her wedding, the bride wore a gown of white satin. The lace bodice was designed with a scalloped neckline, long sleeves, that tapered to points over the wrist. Lace detailed the waltz length skirt. Her finger tip veil was fastened to a tiara of rhinestones and pearls. A single strand of pearls and matching earrings from Japan, belonging to her aunt, was the "something borrowed" in the bridal ensemble. Her bouquet was a fan arrangement of lace, red roses, white carnations and stephanotis. 

A street length frock of white Dacron with lace trim, accented with lacing of baby blue velvet, was chosen by Miss Anne Nikolay, Milwaukee, who served as maid of honor for her niece. A single strand of pearls was worn at the V-neckline and with it she wore matching earrings. In her hair, she had pink rosebuds and her nosegay bouquet of pink and white carnations was tied with blue ribbon. 

Frank Archambo, brother of the bride, was best man. 

For the ceremony, the bride’s mother wore a beige dress with pink accessories. Navy blue was selected by the groom’s mother and also by Mrs. Anna Nikolay, grand mother of the bride. Mrs. Loys Buell, grand mother of the groom, had a beige print. Each one had a corsage of pink roses and white carnations. 

At 2:30 o’clock, a reception was held at the armory club rooms and a 5:30 supper was served 65 guests, who included relatives and a few friends. The club rooms were decorated in pink and blue streamers and white wedding bells and potted plants. 

The bride is a member of the 1957 graduating class of the Abbotsford high school. The groom, a last year’s graduate, is employed at the Motor Inn Garage. He is a member of the 173rd F. A. Bn., of the National Guard and will attend school at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, in Maryland, to take a welder-blacksmith course, starting June 20. 

Among the guests from away were Miss Anne Nikolay, Mrs. Eugene Hess, and daughters, Jeanne and Mary, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Kawczynski, Phil and Bernard Cleppe, and Mrs. John Ettinger and son, Richard, all of Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. George Nikolay, Oxford; Miss Mary Grisvold, Wausau; Mr. and Mrs. Roger Reichersamer, Spooner; Mr. and Mrs. Jim Archambo and five children, Phillips; Mr. and Mrs. Charles Sievert, Stratford; Mr. and Mrs. Art Schrader and two children, Dorchester; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Nikolay and Mr. and Mrs. Adam Illig, Rozellville; and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Pudlas, Curtiss.
