Schreier, Mildred (15 JUN 1963)

Baskets of deep pink peonies, white gladiolas, and white mums were on the altar of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Edson when Miss Mildred Schreier, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Math Schreier, Stanley, became the bride of Wm. Mickett Jr. on Saturday, June 15th, 1963. Rev. Father Knopp performed the double ring ceremony at ten a.m. The senior choir sang the Nuptial Mass and Mrs. Arland Wald sang “On This Day Our Beautiful Mother,” as the bride place a bouquet on the Blessed Virgin’s altar and the groom lit a Votive light at St. Joseph’s altar.

The bride, given away by her father, wore a floor length gown of white imported hand clipped rose point lace over white satin, the basque bodice was fashioned with a Sabrina neckline and long tapered lace sleeves. The bouffant skirt of tiered ruffles was flowing into a peacock chapel train caught with tiny bows in the back. Her fingertip veil of sheer imported illusion nylon tulle hand rolled edge fell from a Queen’s crown of seed pearls. She also wore white pearl earrings. She carried a cascade bouquet of red roses, entwined with her father’s white pearl First Communion Rosary and she also carried a white crystal rosary, a gift of the groom.

Miss Rita Schreier was her sisters’ maid of honor, wearing a Nile green floor length gown of Enka Nylon sheer with shirred strapless bodice and cover up jacket, full bouffant skirt with white scalloped velveray panels down the side with bow trim. The white velveray was also carried out in the jacket. She carried a cascade bouquet of pink carnations, and also carried a green crystal rosary and lace handkerchief, gifts of the bride.

Mrs. James Seufzer, sister of the bride, and Mrs. Claude Benzschawel, sister of the groom, were bridesmaids, wearing gowns styled identically to the maid of honor’s, only in pale pink, and their cascade bouquets were green tinted carnations. They all wore double crown headpieces of pearl with a full circular maline veil to match their gowns, also pearl earrings. Each carried a crystal rosary and lace handkerchiefs, gifts of the bride.

The groom’s attendants were James Seufzer, brother-in-law of the bride, and Claude Benzschawel, brother-in-law of the groom, wearing dark tuxedoes with white carnation boutonnieres. The groom wore a red rose boutonniere and the bride’s gift to the groom was a St. Joseph’s Missal prayer book.

Mrs. Howard Forman baked the wedding cake which was cut and served by Mrs. Gene Benzschawel and Mrs. Charles Scheinkoenig, sisters of the groom. Mrs. Peter Depa, sister of the bride, was in charge of the guests book and registered the gifts.
