Holnbach, Barbara (01 SEPT 1956)


Upon the return of the new Mr. and Mrs. Preising from a honeymoon spent touring the western states, they will live at 2323 W. Capital Drive, Milwaukee.


The York Center Methodist Church was the scene of the wedding of Miss Barbara Jean Holnbach, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Holnbach, Loyal, and Donald G. Preising, son of Mrs. Ida Preising, Marshfield.


The nuptial ceremony was performed by the Rev. Charles Swanson at 2 p.m. Saturday, September 1, 1956. Marlene Anderegg sang, "Because" and "Dearly Beloved’ during the service and Miss Ruth Pietenpol was accompanist.


The bride’s gown featured a strapless chantilly lace bodice and a lavishly full waltz length skirt, trimmed with Appliques of lace and swirls of nylon tulle ruffles. It was completed with a tiny lace jacket with long sleeves and mandarin collar. Her veil of silk illusion was attached to a pillbox cap of rosepoint lace with a pleated tulle edge scattered with pearls. Her flowers were Stephanotis, yellow roses, and an orchid orchid.


The maid of honor, Miss Marie Preising, Marshfield, sister of the groom, and the bridesmaid, Mrs. Henry Knoll, Wisconsin Rapids, sister of the bride, wore waltz length gowns of orchid nylon tricot, with a draped bodice styled with hi-lo necklines. Their hats were all around flowered crowns of matching color and their bouquets were semi-colonial arrangements of yellow and bronze pom poms.


Wayne Holnbach, Loyal, brother of the bride served as best man, and Henry Knoll, brother-in-law of the bride, was groomsman. Ushering duties were performed by Clarence Aumann, Milwaukee, brother-in-law of the groom, and Emil Roggenbauer, Milwaukee.


A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents.
