Denzin, Karen (31 OCT 1964)

Miss Karen Denzin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Denzin of route 1, Abbotsford, and Ronald Olson of route 1, Ripon, son of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Olson of route 1, Abbotsford, exchanged marriage promises Saturday, oct. 31, 1964, in Bethlehem Lutheran Church at Milan with the Rev. F.R. Timler officiating. During the 1:30 o'clock ceremony, Mrs. William Denzin Jr. sang "The Song of Ruth" and "Wedding Prayer." Mrs. Orville Barkow Sr. was the organist.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was attired in an exquisite floor length gown of bombazine and lace. The molded basque bodice was styled with a lace appliqued neckline, embellished with iridescent sequins and pearls, and long sleeves tapering to points over the wrist. The princess panel front balanced with ruffled tieres of bombazine edged with sequins. A crown of rhinestones and crystal drops held the bouffant fingertip illusion veil. Yellow roses with white stephanotis and long streamers formed the bridal bouquet.

Honor attendants were Mrs. Ronald Brock of Ripon, a sister of the groom, and Robert Denzin of Abbotsford, a brother of a bride. Miss Roberta Becker, a friend of the couple, and Miss Lynette Denzin, both of Athens, a cousin of the bride, and Ronald Brock of Ripon and Vern Wittlinger of Abbotsford, a cousin of the bride, completed the wedding party.

Roger Denzin of Abbotsford, a cousin of the bride, and Russell Stollfus of Rosendale, a brother-in-law of the groom, seated the guests at the church.

The bride's attendants were attired in floor length emerald green Laguna peau gowns with three-quarter length sleeves and high scooped necklines. Dainty bows detailed the fitted midriffs and the A-line of the flared skirts was enhanced by a detachable Watteau panel.

Adorning their heads were velveray floral hats with four tier bouffant veils. They carried baskets of yellow and bronze mums and cattails.

Yellow and bronze mums were combined in the corsages which the mothers wore with their ensembles.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the Milan clubhouse, followed by a 4 o'clock dinner in the church basement. In the evening a wedding dance was held at Sportsmen's Parks, Colby.

Guests at the wedding came from Phillips, Ripon, Neenah, Rosendale, Wausau, Aniwa, Athens, Edgar, Mosinee, Abbotsford, Colby and the surrounding area.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Olson are making their home at Rosendale. The groom is employed by Jacob Brenner at Fond du Lac. Prior to their marriage the bride was employed at Standard container at Edgar.
