Kieser, Carol Mae (Marriage - 7 Feb. 1959)


Miss Carol Mae Kieser and Kurt J. Bartz exchanged marriage vows in a candle light ceremony at Christ Lutheran church, Saturday evening. The Rev. F. H. Sprengler read the service at 6:30 o’clock.


Parents of the bridal couple are Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb G. Kieser of Abbotsford and Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Bartz of Celle, Hannover, Germany.


During the ceremony, Herbert Juneau played the organ and accompanied himself as he sang "The Lord’s Prayer," and "O Perfect Love."


The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a long sleeved ballerina length gown of white lace over taffeta with a very bouffant skirt. The bodice had a scoop neckline trimmed with sequins and pearls. Pearls also trimmed the crown which held her lace edged finger tip veil. She carried a cascade bouquet of red roses and stephanotis with white streamers.


Miss Marilyn Kieser, sister of the bride, and Weldon Brown, a friend, were the attendants. Dennis Kieser acted as usher.


Miss Kieser’s dress was of cotillion blue lace over taffeta, waltz length. It was detailed with ruffles at the back. She wore a matching head piece of lace and pearls and carried a cascade bouquet of yellow and white carnations with yellow satin ribbon.


Yellow and white gladioli in the two altar vases and two large bouquets of the same flowers adorned the church.


Following the ceremony a reception was held the home of the bride’s parents and dinner was served at the Casa Grande.


Mr. and Mrs. Bartz left on a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin and Michigan and will make their home in Abbotsford in the Franklin Kraus home on Spruce Street.


The bride is a graduate of the Abbotsford high school and is employed as waitress at the Coffee Shop. The groom is attending Wausau Vocational School.
