Witt, Janice (27 AUG 1960)


On Saturday, Aug. 27, 1960, Miss Janice Witt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry H. Witt of Stanley, became the bride of Mr. William Wagner, son of Mr. and Mrs. William S. Wagner of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.)  The Rev. Frank Salveson officiated at the double ring ceremony held at 2:00 at Our Saviorís Lutheran Church in Stanley.


Miss Witt was given in marriage by her father.  She wore a floor length gown of hand clipped Chantilly lace over taffeta.  The front of the skirt featured a V-insert of appliqued tulle, while the back of the gown had a cascade of Chantilly lace and nylon tulle ruffles.  The dress had a Basque bodice with a sequin trimmed Sabrina neckline & long sleeves.  The brideís headpiece was a half hat of folds of pleated tulle and rose point lace accented by a small pearl crown and pearl trim.  She wore a fingertip French illusion veil and carried a white orchid over her motherís white Bible.  Gold leaves and miniature mums completed her bouquet.  A strand of pearls, a gift of the groom, was worn around her neck.


The matron of honor, Mrs. Richard Wagner, wore a gold silk shantung sheath with gold overskirt of nylon chiffon over net.


The bridesmaids, Mrs. Ronald Witt and Miss Doris Berens, and the junior bridesmaids, Miss Lois La Gasse and Miss Lynn La Gasse, wore bronze silk shantung sheaths with overskirts of silk organza over net.  All attendants wore circlets of gold and bronze mums as headpieces and carried cascade bouquets of gold and bronze mums.  The flower girl, Miss Cheri Witt, was dressed in white lace and also wore a headband of white and gold mums.  She carried a basket of fall flowers.


Richard Wagner attended his brother as best man.  Ronald Witt, brother of the bride, and Gerald Glasshof were groomsmen.  The ring bearer was Dean Witt.  Gerald Witt, Ray Czech and Robert Anderson served as ushers.


Mrs. George Lane sang "Intrigue Me Not to Leave Thee" and "The Lordís Prayer."  Mr. Peter Anderson sang "Wedding Prayer."


A supper was served to 350 guests in the church parlors.  A lawn reception was held at the home of the brideís parents, both before and after the supper.
