Wagner, Delores M. (27 OCT 1956)


Miss Delores M. Wagner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Wagner, Rt. 1, Stanley, became the bride of James A. Peterson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Peterson, Second Av., Stanley, on Saturday, Oct. 27, 1956.  The Rev. Edmund Cramer read the double ring ceremony at nine o’clock a.m. at St. Anne’s Catholic Church.


Given in marriage by her father, the bride was attired in a gown of lace and net over taffeta.  The fitted, lace bodice, featuring long pointed sleeves, Peter Pan collar, net yoke, and covered buttons down the back, extended into a lace and net bouffant floor length overskirt over satin.  She carried a fan shaped bouquet of white roses centered with an orchid.  Her fingertip veil and held in place with a pearl and sequin cap.


The bridesmaids were Mrs. William Peterson, sister-in-law of the groom, and Miss Ilene Steinmetz cousin of the bride.  Their gowns were of orchid lace over taffeta styled with sleeveless bodice with matching jacket, and full lace skirt, caught up with tiny rosebuds.  They each wore rhinestone necklace and earrings, and carried colonial bouquets of white and yellow mums.


Preceding the wedding party down the aisle were the two flower girls.  Mary Peterson, niece of the groom of Boyd, and Marie Wagner, sister of the bride.  They each wore a gown of white brocaded satin featuring fitted bodice, Peter Pan collar, orchid sash, and floor length skirt.  Each carried a bouquet of white and yellow mums.


Jerome Wagner of Eau Claire, the bride’s brother, served as best man and ushers were the bride’s brother, Lauverne Wagner of Appleton, Wis., and Donald Peterson, the groom’s brother, of Wis. Rapids.


A wedding breakfast was served at ten-thirty o’clock at the home of the groom’s parents.  A reception was held during the afternoon at the Stanley auditorium with about two hundred guests in attendance.


Following a wedding trip to Chicago, Green Bay and Wis. Rapids, the young Mr. and Mrs. Peterson will be at home at 145 Second Av., Stanley.  The bride was attired in a red knit suit with the orchid from her bouquet as her corsage as they left on their trip.


Both the bride and groom attended Stanley High School.
