Krueger, Alice E. (3 AUG 1963)

Miss Alice Ethel Krueger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Krueger, Route 2, Colby, became the bride of Kenneth Oelke, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Oelke, Route 1, Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.), Saturday, Aug. 3, 1963. The Rev. J.V. Wohlfeil read the double ring service at 2 o'clock in St. Paul's Lutheran Church, town of Green Grove.

Mrs. Vernon Boss was organist and the congregation sang "O Perfect Love," and a nuptial hymn during the ceremony.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, appeared in a long sleeved taffeta and lace bridal gown that had a bell shaped, floor length skirt. The taffeta bodice had a scalloped lace edged Sabrina neckline embellished with iridescent sequins. A wreath of waxed orange blossoms secured her butterfly veil of nylon illusion. She carried a bouquet of white, pink and green pompons.

Attending the couple were Mr. and Mrs. Vincent Vignuolo of New Brunswick, N.J., brother-in-law and sister of the bride' Miss Bonnie Kayhart of Colby, a friend of the bride, and Fred Krueger, Colby, a brother of the bride.

The matron of honor was attired in pastel pink and the bridesmaid in light green. Their dresses were made alike with full taffeta skirts with overskirt of nylon and lace bodices with long, lace sleeves. They wore small matching veils and carried bouquets of pompons in white and colors to match their dresses.

To her daughter's wedding, Mrs. Krueger wore a light green dress and a corsage made of the same flowers and colors as in the bride's bouquet.

Mrs. Carl Ploeckelman of Abbotsford, grandmother of the groom, was attired in a black dress accented with a corsage of green, white and pink pompons.

Bouquets of garden flowers decorated the altar of the church and the home of the bride's parents was decorated with garden flowers, white wedding bells and streamers for the reception which followed the ceremony. About 175 guests attended. In the evening, a wedding dance was held at the Atwood Hall.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Oelke are making their home at Route 2, Thorp (Clark co., Wis.), where he is engaged in farming.

Guests at the wedding came from Abbotsford, Colby, Stetsonville, Merrill, Tomahawk, Dorchester, Curtiss, Owen, Unity, Marshfield, Thorp, Neillsville, Granton, Wausau, Neosho, Chicago, Ill. and New Brunswick, N.J.
