Langfeldt, Joann (10 JULY 1957)


Her bridal attendants, in identically styled gowns of nylon sheer in a pale aqua shade, preceded Joann Kathryn Langfeldt up the aisle of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church at 10 p.m. Wednesday, July 10, where she was married to Donald Glen Oestreich. The young women carried colonial bouquets of roses, carnations, and lilies. Their gowns were styled with low bodices, scalloped necklines, and short sleeves, and their full length skirts were complimented with large back bows. Mrs. Norman Polasek, Wild Rose, sister of the bride, was matron of honor, and Doris Schneider and Beverly Schumacher, both of Marshfield and Wilma Walbruck, of Wausau were bridesmaids.


Father Gerald Fischer officiated at the nuptial rites that united in marriage the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Max F. Langfeldt and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Everett Oestreich.


Nylon tulle over satin made the bride’s gown. The dress was styled with a long torso waistline to which was attached the floor length skirt. Alencon lace-edged panels trimmed the short sleeved bodice and lace-edged cross pleated panels of nylon tulle trimmed the bouffant skirt. Her finger-tip veil was held by a head piece of sequins and pearls.


Wearing short gauntlets she carried a cascade arrangement of red roses with streamers of stephanotis and rosebuds.


The groom chose for his best man, Norman Polasek of Wild Rose, brother-in- law of the bride and for hiss other attendants he chose his brothers, Richard and Robert Oestreich, Loyal, and a friend Herbert Sonneider of Marshfield.


Ushers were Herbert Langfeldt of Loyal, brother of the bride, and Ronald Reindl, Neillsville, brother-in-law of the groom.


In a floor length of white satin with a front panel of net and a lace ruffled back, wearing gauntlets and carrying a basket of white daisies, Bonnie Sue Langfeldt, sister of the bride, served as flower girl. Mickey Oestreich, a cousin of the groom, carried the rings for the double ring ceremony


Mrs. Langfeldt attended the wedding of her daughter in a linen orchid dress with white accessories and her corsage was yellow and white roses.


The groom’s mother wore a dress of blue nylon with white accessories and her corsage was pink and white roses.


A dinner and supper were served in St. Anthony’s Dining Hall and a reception was given at the bride’s home. A wedding dance was given at Riverview Ballroom with music by the Howie Sturtz orchestra.


Both of the young couple attended the Loyal High School. The bride attended Central State College at Stevens Point for two years and is employed as a bookkeeper for the Three Sister’s Store in Marshfield. The groom operates a farm at Loyal R. 1, where they will reside when they return from a honeymoon in southern states.
