Reidner, Phyllis L. (8 JUN 1963)

Miss Phyllis Lorraine Reidner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Reidner, Ladysmith, and Robert Geroge Peterson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leland Peterson Sr., Bruce, were married Saturday afternoon, June 8, 1963, at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ladysmith. The Rev. Eldore Messerschmidt of Ladysmith, and the Rev. E.M. Kuerschner, Morristown, Minn., officiated at the double ring ceremony at 3:30 p.m.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride chose a full length gown of luxurious silk peau de soie. The traditionally styled bodice was designed with an oval neckline and long, tapered sleeves ending with lily points over her hands. An applique of re-embroidered Alencon lace enriched with seed pearls, accented the bodice and enhanced the center panel of the slightly belled skirt, sweeping to a graceful chapel train.

Her veil of sheerest imported illusion fell from a bridal hat of spring orange blossoms.

The bride's bouquet was fan shaped with stephanotis and blue pomps.

Miss Linda Nelson of Ellsworth, friend of the bride, assisted the bride as maid of honor. She was attired in a ballerina length gown in pastel blue sheer over rustling pea taffeta. The short bolero jacket fashioned with oval neckline and short thimble sleeves, were encircled with dainty scallop edging. Inverted pleats, drawn by a bow, gave fullness to the slightly belled skirt.

The bridesmaids were Miss Nancy Kulibert of Minneapolis, cousin of the bride; Miss Ellen Means of Mercer; Miss Joan Kuzel of Herbster, and Miss Joyce Boss of Bruce, friends of the bride. They were dressed like the maid of honor. Matching crowns held their blusher veils. Their colonial bouquets were of blue and white daisies.

The groom's friend, William Doyle of Kansas City, was best man. Groomsmen were Robert Reidner, brother of the bride; Donald Peterson, Leland Peterson Jr., and William Peterson, brothers of the groom. Ushers were Thomas Reidner, cousin of the bride; Larry Keith, LaVerne Hinaus, and Jim Collins, friends of the groom. Organ selections were provided by Mrs. John Webb of Superior, one of the bride's former college instructors. Vocal soloist for the occasion was Edward Sevals, also of Spooner.

A reception dinner was held in the church parlors following the ceremony.

The bride and groom are both graduates of Wis. State College at Superior. Mr. Peterson is on the teaching staff at Colby (Clark Co., Wis.). The bride will teach int eh Colby schools next fall.

Pre-nuptial showers were held at the Erle Barber and Raymond Kulibert homes in Ladysmith; The Gilbert Smith home at Bruce, and Helen Linders and Barbara Sheridan homes in Superior.

Upon their return from a honeymoon in northern Wisconsin, the newlyweds will be at home at Colby.

Out of town guests attending the wedding and reception were from Morristown, Minn.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Rice Lake; Hopkins, Minn.; Minneapolis; St. Paul; Hayward; Bruce; Weyerhauser; Ellsworth; Kansas City, Mo.; Amery' Eau Claire; Superior; Herbster and Milwaukee.
