Haselow, Karen (10 June 1961)

Baskets of white glads and orchid mums decorated the altar of Trinity Lutheran Church for the wedding of Karen Marie Haselow and Arthur Brearley on Saturday afternoon, June 10. Rev. Ganz united the daughter of Mrs. Edwin Haselow and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Brearley of 1615 Conrad Place, New Berlin.

Jean Noldner presided at the organ and Donald and Nathan Noeldner sang “The Lord’s Prayer” and “Today O Lord.”

As the bride was given in marriage by her uncle, Arthur Sorenson of Marion, Indiana, she wore a gown of white nylon tulle with a V-neckline and it was edged in Chantilly lace. Tiers of tulle and lace formed the chapel sweep of the long bouffant skirt. The gown featured long fitted sleeves and her finger-tip veil to a headpiece of seed pearls. An orchid surrounded by stephanotis made her bouquet.

Maid of honor was Geraldine gray and bridesmaid was Susan Kissinger of West Bend. The young women wore frocks of white organza over orchid taffeta and were styled with simple neckline and short sleeves in a cocktail length. Orchid embroidery accented the skirt and bodice and they carried an orchid surrounded by stephanotis.

Mrs. Haselow saw her daughter’s wedding in a blue embroidered organza over taffeta dress with white accessories and the groom’s mother wore a dress of beige organza over taffeta with beige accessories. Each was presented with a corsage of pink rose buds and white carnations.

The groom chose Richard Wadsworth of Downey, Illinois to be his best man and groomsman was Jon Tierney of Superior. Gordon Haselow of Spencer and Charles Haselow of Owen, both cousins of the bride, seated the wedding guests.

Wedding day events included a reception, supper and dance at Bruno’s Supper Club at Marshfield.

The new Mrs. Brearley is a 1958 graduate of Loyal High School and will be a senior at the University of Wisconsin at Madison next fall. Mr. Brearley graduated from Solomon Juneau High School at Milwaukee in 1957 and was graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison on June 5 and also was commissioned as Ensign in the Navy on that day. The bride is a major in Home Economics and the groom majored in science. He will be leaving in July for San Diego, California where he will be stationed. After a honeymoon through Northern Wisconsin they will live in Milwaukee.
