Hempleman, Caroline H. (5 JUN 1965)

Carnations were on the altar of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Thorp, when Miss Caroline Hempleman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Hempleman, Thorp, became the bride of Robert Edward Halida, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Halida, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Halida, Lublin, on Saturday, June 5th, 1965. Rev. Robert Olson performed the 2:30 p.m. ceremony. Miss Linda Tieman sang, "Wedding Prayer," "Crown with the Benediction" and "Lord's Prayer," accompanied by Mrs. Wm. Boardman as organist.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a vision of luxurious French gown designed with scalloped Chantilly lace, highlighted with sequin scoop neckline and long traditional tapered sleeves with a chapel train. A fingertip sheer illusion veil fell from a crown of seed pearls and crystal and lace. The bride carried a modified cascade of pink sweetheart roses and pink, blue and white carnations. She wore her mother's gold pendant cultured pearl necklace and ear rings.

Miss Nancy Hempleman, sister of the bride, was maid of honor, wearing a ballerina baby pink dress with long sleeves of sheer organza over taffeta. The body of lace was between taffeta and organza. A sheer blush veil fell from a crown of seed pearls and crystal.

Bridesmaids were Miss Nancy Halida, sister of the groom and Miss Karen Hempleman, cousin of the bride. They wore baby blue dresses styled identically to the maid of honor's, with headpiece to match. All carried bouquets of pink and white carnations and wore pearl necklace and ear rings, a gift from the bride and groom.

Robert Plecko, cousin of the groom, was best man, and groomsmen were Jack Kewin, a friend, and Kenneth Meissmer, cousin of the bride.

A supper for 200 guests was served in the church parlors. A dance was held at Sciezor's Hall, Lublin, with music by Kodl's band and the grand march led by Eugene Budzinski.

The bride's mother wore a white lace suit with taffeta with blue accessories. The groom's mother wore a pink lace suit, and each wore a corsage of blue carnations and pink and white roses.

After a wedding tip to Wis. Dells and other states, the couple will make their home at Sheboygan, where the groom is employed in a factory.

Out of town guests were from Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, Fall Creek, Holcombe, Gilman, Lublin, Owen, Withee, Stanley, Durand, Boyd, Thorp, Wausau, Caledonia, Eleva, Portage, Cadott and Cornell, Wis., and Chicago, Ill.
