Ramminger, Pauline A. (15 JUN 1963)

Miss Pauline Audrey Ramminger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Ramminger, Abbotsford, and Marvin John Riemer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Riemer of Stetsonville, exchanged marriage promises before a nuptial high mass Saturday, June 15, 1963, at 10 o'clock at St. Louis Catholic Church, Dorchester. The Rev. Gerald Schuh officiated.

The bride appeared in a traditional long sleeved gown of embroidered lace over white faille taffeta. Tiny seed pearls and sequins trimmed the scalloped lace neckline and the hemline. The skirt was detailed in the front with three lace roses and the back was styled with tiers of lace and sequins all the way to a full sweep train. An Italian inspired double tiara of pearls and crystals held her fingertip veil of French illusion. She carried a white prayer book with Amazon lilies, garnet roses and stephanotis.

Attending the bride were Mrs. Otto Olson Jr. of Medford, as matron of honor and Mrs. Eugene Erickson of Milwaukee, Mrs. Milton Ramminger of Dorchester, and Miss Janet Borchardt of Owen, as bridesmaids.

They were attired alike in mint green bell shaped dresses of lace and satinette with a lace bodice that featured a scoop neckline. A large bow and streamer accented the back. They wore mint green braid crowns trimmed with pearls and aurora stones and halo veils. They carried colonial bouquets of pink and white carnations.

Otto Olson Jr. was best man, Eugene Erickson of Milwaukee, Milton Ramminger of Dorchester and Norman Diers of Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., completed the bridal party.

Mrs. Lawrence Bengford was the organist for the adult choir which sang during the nuptial mass.

Festivities of the wedding day included brunch at the home of the bride's parents, a reception from 2 to 4:30 at the VFW Hall at Medford, followed by supper there for about 200 guests. In the evening a wedding dance was held at Memorial Hall, Dorchester.

Mr. and Mrs. Riemer left on a honeymoon trip to California, Washington, Colorado and other western states and on their return will live at Stetsonville, where the groom is employed as a carpenter and mason. The bride is a beautician at Marion's Beauty Salon, Colby.

Guests at the wedding came from Prentice, Medford, Stetsonville, Dorchester, Abbotsford, Colby, Milan, Curtiss, Merrill, Owen, Marathon, Waterloo, Milwaukee, Viroqua, Rhinelander, Withee and Chicago, Ill.
