Seif, Judith Ann (Marriage - 4 October 1958) 

On Saturday Miss Judith Ann Seif and James H. Metzke were married in a 7 p.m. candlelight service at Trinity Lutheran Church in Greenwood. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Seif, Rt. 3, Neillsville, and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Metzke of Greenwood. 

The Rev. H. F. Brauer performed the double ring ceremony before an altar decorated with baskets of yellow, whie, pink and purple ‘mums and asters. 

Miss Sarah Albrecht, accompanied by Deon Larsen at the organ, sang, "Oh Promise Me" and "The Lord’s Prayer." 

As the bride was given in marriage by her father, she wore a floor length dress fashioned with a full bouffant skirt with tiers of Rochelle lace extending from waist to floor. The smooth fitting bodice was accented with a sweetheart neckline and long fitted sleeves.  Her fingertip veil of sheer illusion net cascaded from a hand-rolled, edged Alencon head crown of pearls and sequins.  Her heart shaped bridal bouquet consisted of red roses and Lily of the Valley, centered with a white orchid. 

Miss Marlene Metzke, Milwaukee, was maid of honor.  Bridesmaids were Mrs. Jerry Radlinger, Dorchester, and Miss Betty Otis of Greenwood.  Miss Joan Metzke was junior bridesmaid. 

Misses Janice Seif, Neillsville, and Barbara Klueckman, Strum, were flower girls.  Masters John and Michael Metzke were ringbearers.

A wedding reception fro 200 guests was held at 8:30 p.m. at the home of the bride’s parents on Route 3. 

Both young people are graduates of the Greenwood High School. The groom is employed in Greenwood. 

They will reside in Greenwood on their return from a wedding trip through southern states.
