Seebandt, Claudean (Marriage - 4 May 1968)

Marriage vows were exchanged Saturday in St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Neillsville by Claudean Helen Seebandt of Neillsville, and Douglas James LeZotte of Kohler. The Rev. George M. Nelson performed the nuptial ceremony at a 12 noon high mass. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Henry Seebandt and Mr. and Mrs. Edward LeZotte, both of Rt. 1 Neillsville. The children’s choir of St. Mary’s sang.

Mr. Seebandt gave his daughter in marriage. For her wedding the bride chose a white floor-length peau de soie empire-styled A-line dress. The back featured a detachable train trimmed with Venetian lace. The headpiece held her fingertip veil. The entire ensemble was made by the bride. She carried an elongated cascade bouquet of gold roses and miniature white carnations.

Miss Joan Holnbach of Rudolph was matron-of-honor. Bridesmaids were Miss Marcia LeZotte of Neillsville, Miss Connie Sundberg of Burlington, Mrs. Roger Bender of Loyal, and Miss Joanne Seebandt of Loyal. They wore avocado empire-styled A-line gowns, fashioned with pleated sleeves and cage effect back. Each carried an elongated bouquet of yellow carnations.

The groom’s attendants were Wayne Holnbach, bestman; Herman Seebandt of Neillsville, Larry Hainz of Cedar Rapids, Ia., Bill Wiesjahn of Wisconsin Rapids and Locke Paulson of Kohler, groomsmen, and ushers were Ronald Ratsch and Bruce LeZotte.

Refreshments were served at the bride’s home following the ceremony, with a reception at 4:30 p.m. in the Legion hall in Neillsville and a dance in the evening.

The bride will be graduated May 31 from Stout State University. Mr. LeZotte is a mechanic at the Kohler Company in Kohler, where they will make their home.
