Angelos, Georgia (27 AUG 1960)


A private ceremony in St. Patrick’s Church in Eau Claire Saturday, Aug. 27th, 1960, united Miss Georgia Angelos in marriage to Gerald J. Hiebsch.  The Rev. Henry H. Lee officiated at the Nuptial High Mass.


Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Nick H. Angelos, Beaver Dam, and Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Hiebsch of Owen.  The bride’s father gave her in marriage.


For the double ring ceremony, the bride wore a ballerina length gown of silk organza over taffeta.  Embroidery bordered in an eyelet effect detailed the gown which was styled with a portrait neckline and fitted Basque.  The short sleeves were finished with scalloped edging.  Back detail and a matching bow of silk organza highlighted the flared skirt.  A wreath of apple blossoms made of pearl trimmed with rhinestones held her fingertip illusion veil.  The bride carried a colonial bouquet of lace, greens, pine and white and Dubonnet carnations.


Attending the couple were Miss Mary Catherine Ganka and Merlin K. Hammer.  Miss Ganka wore a street length gown of pink silk organza over taffeta featuring a scoop neckline and three-quarter puffed sleeves.  The satin bow at her waist matched the one she wore as a headpiece.  She carried a white basket of Dubonnet carnations.


Following the ceremony, a wedding dinner was held at the Hotel Eau Claire.  The bride’s mother wore a blue sheath with white accessories.  A black sheath with matching accessories was worn by Mrs. Hiebsch.  Each mother had a corsage of pink carnations.


After a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin, the couple will be at home at 457 Summit Ave., Eau Claire.  The bride is employed at the district office of the telephone company.  The groom will be a senior at Wis. State College here.


Prenuptial events included showers given by: Mrs. Gladys Tupper, Miss Ganka, and by the bride’s co-workers.  A stag party for the groom was given by Fred and David Wilson.
