Garbisch, Virginia Erna (Marriage - 18 March 1967)

The Rev. E. T. Keller of Pittsville officiated at a double ring ceremony Saturday uniting in marriage Miss Virginia Erna Garbisch daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Garbisch of Rt. 1, Granton, and David John Olson of Bloomer. The 2 p.m. ceremony was performed in Zion Lutheran Church in Granton.

For her wedding the bride chose a floor length gown of linen fabric, with a delicately scoop neckline. The three-quarter length sleeves were edged with Venice lace. The Empire waistline flowed into an A-line skirt. A fingertip veil was attached to a pearl head piece. She carried an arm cluster, of white calla lilies.

Her attendants, Miss Eileen Garbisch of Granton, maid of honor, and Miss Cheryl Harvey of Neillsville, bridesmaid, were seen in floor length sheaths of light blue chiffon over taffeta. Their gowns were enhanced with raised waistlines, elbow length sleeves and bateau necklines. There were lace inserts throughout the bodices. Small veils billowed from bow headpieces. Each carried a Madonna lily.

Patty Olson of Minneapolis, Minn., as flower girl, wore a floor length gown of white crepe styled like that of the bride. She also carried a Madonna lily.
