Wendt, Teriann Betty Lee (Marriage - 20 June 1964)


St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Neillsville was the setting Saturday of the wedding of Miss Teriann Betty Lee Wendt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Wendt of Neillsville, and Stanley Lee Kurasz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Kurasz of Rt. 3 Neillsville. The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. Norman Lindloff before an altar decked with bouquets of pink and white peonies. White lace ribbon bows centered by dark pink roses marked the pews.


Two hundred guests witnessed as the bride approached the altar with her father, who gave her in marriage.


For her wedding the bride was attired in a floor-length white gown of silk organza and lace over bridal taffeta. The Basque bodice featured a square neckline trimmed with lace and miniature crystals. Long, tapered sleeves came to a point at the wrists. A modified full skirt cascaded from the waist. The back of the dress was accented with a sweetheart bow.  For her headpiece she chose an ornate crown of imported pearls and crystals from which a bouffant veil of nylon illusion cascaded.


Miss Kathleen Wendt, a sister was maid-of-honor.  Bridesmaid was Janice Wendt, a cousin, of Neillsville. The attendants wore floor-length dresses of yellow ___, nylon organdy over taffeta, featuring bell-shaped skirts and fitted bodices with rounded necklines.  The skirts fell from a set cummerbund in the back. Their attire was complete with a watteau sheer panel of organdy, flowing from a bow attached at the back of the neckline. They carried bouquets of yellow carnations.


William Holt of Neillsville was bestman. Groomsman was Gary Emerick of Appleton.  Ushers were Jeff Gall and Melvin Wendt.


Nuptial music was played by Victor Lehman and soloist was Kendall Smith.


The bride is a 1963 graduate of Neillsville High School and has been employed in Rock Falls, Ill.  The groom, a 1961 graduate of Neillsville High School, attended Wisconsin State College in Stevens Point.
