Bach, Fern A. #2 (1 MAY 1954)


On Saturday morning, May 1st, 1954 at 9:30 at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Stetsonville, Fern Alice Bach, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Math Bach of Medford, and Harold H. Laube of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), were marriage in a double ring ceremony performed by Rev. Joseph Seeboth.


The bride, given in marriage by her father, was beautifully attired in a chapel length dress with a fitted bodice of rosepoint lace over satin, topped with a sweetheart neckline and closed in the back with tiny lace covered buttons.  The rosepoint lace sleeves formed points over the hands and the skirt was of nylon tulle over satin topped with a half skirt of deep scalloped rosepoint lace.  Her fingertip veil of nylon tulle was held in place by a crown of tiny stephanotis with attached streamers to which were tied tiny white stephanotis.


Rosemary Hohl of Capron, Ill., sister of the bride, the matron of honor, and Harriet Plummer of Stanley, a friend of the bride, and Agnes Stelzel of Dorchester, a friend of the bride, wore ballerina length gowns of lace and nylon tulle over satin with a lace bolero, styled identically in colors blue, yellow and pink.  Their harmonizing wrist corsages were of carnations.


Eileen Potocnik of Owen, niece of the groom as flower girl, wore a gown of light blue nylon tulle netting over sheer blue nylon with a matching bonnet.


Perry Bublitz of Owen, nephew of the groom, acted as flower boy, and Aaron Staab of Dorchester, nephew of the bride, was ring bearer.


Francis Hohl of Capron, Ill., brother-in-law of the bride, was the best man, and the other attendants of the groom were Richard Laube of Owen, brother of the groom, and a friend, Dennis Mertens of Dorchester.


A dinner was given by the bride’s parents at the Stetsonville Church parlors for approximately 150 guests.


The happy couple left on a wedding trip to southern Wisconsin and Iowa and will be at home in the near future on their farm south of Owen.


The bride is a graduate of the Medford High School in 1951 and has been employed in secretarial work at the Thorp Finance Co.


The groom, a graduate of the Owen High School in 1949, has been engaged in farming after spending two years in the army.
