Now on a honeymoon through Canada are Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Esselman, who were married Saturday at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Bakerville. Rev. Francis P. Rushman officiated for the 10 o'clock Nuptial High Mass for which the church choir sang.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. John Gessert, route 1, Marshfield and Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Esselman, route 2, Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.).

For her wedding, the former Julie Gessert of route 1, Marshfield chose a floor length gown of Chantilly lace and nylon tulle. It was designed with scalloped Sabrina neckline, having rhinestone trim, and a bouffant skirt with ruffled nylon tiers cascading down the back, the skirt front with a Chantilly lace apron effect having lace motifs. Flowing from her aurora borealis crystal headpiece was her hand rolled edged nylon sheer veil. She carried an arrangement of red roses and white feathered carnations.

A sister of the groom, Mrs. Mary Ann Bliesener of Loyal was matron of honor at the wedding and bridesmaids were Mrs. Lawrence Gessert and Donna Baltus, both of Marshfield; a sister-in-law and niece of the bride, respectively.

Their street length formals, topped with bolero jackets having satin bow trim, were silk organza over taffeta and styled with bateau necklines, fitted cummerbunds and fully gathered skirts finished with deep hems. Their headpieces were crowns of pearls and aurora borealis crystals, to which face veils were attached. Each held a colonial arrangement of pink roses and stephanotis.

A brother of the bride, Lawrence Gessert of Marshfield was best man, with James Beaver and Donald Becker of Loyal as groomsmen. Clem Esselman, a brother of the groom, and Alois Gessert, a brother of the bride, were ushers.

For her daughter's wedding, Mrs. Gessert wore a black and brown dress with black accessories and Mrs. Esselman wore a blue dress with black accessories.

Following the ceremony a wedding breakfast was served at the home of the bride's parents. A dinner, reception and dance took place at the Eagles Hall in Marshfield.

The groom is a graduate of Loyal High School and is engaged in farming on route 2, Loyal, where the couple will make their home upon their return from Canada.

The bride, who attended Marshfield Senior High School, has been employed at North Parkway at Marshfield.
