Kohnhorst, Carol (11 JUL 1959)


Miss Carol Kohnhorst, Wausau and Emil Untiedt Jr., Curtiss, came before the Rev. John B. Pinion in St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Colby Saturday, July 11th, 1959, to exchange marriage vows.  The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. Kohnhorst and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Untiedt Sr., were married in an 11:00 o’clock service.


Mrs. Lyle Kappa, Wausau, was matron of honor, with Misses Janet Kohnhorst, Wausau, Beverly Kohnhorst, Wausau, and Joanne Untiedt, Curtiss, as bridesmaids.  Lyle Kappa as best man, was assisted by Ronald Hake, Curtiss, Bill Horner, Curtiss, and Richard Beneke, Milwaukee, as groomsmen.


The bride’s attendants wore identically styled ballerina length gowns of pure silk organza over taffeta in blue.  Their fitted organza bodices showed scooped necklines embroidered with organdy applique.  The full skirts also showed organdy applique and they wore matching headpieces in the same shade as their gowns, with halo veils.  Deep blue ribbon tied their cascade bouquets of pink and white carnations.


Sheer nylon tulle over nylon net and white faille taffeta styled the bride’s traditional gown.  The molded bodice showed a scalloped lace portrait neckline dotted with embroidery of iridescent sequins.  Her veil of imported English illusion fell to her fingertips and was caught to a pleated tulle crown with a scalloped seed pearl border.  She carried a cascade bouquet of red roses and white carnations.


The couple greeted friends and relatives at a reception at the groom’s home in Curtiss.  A dinner was served at noon in St. Mary’s School.  The couple will honeymoon in Washington, D.C. before returning to make their home on route 1, Curtiss, where the groom is engaged in farming.  He is a graduate of Colby High School.  The bride is a graduate of Wausau Senior High School and has been employed at the D & M Beauty Shop in Wausau.
