Kieser, Dorothy A. (27 DEC 1964)

The marriage of Miss Dorothy Ann Kieser, Abbotsford, to Quintin F. Quade, St. Louis, Mo., took place Dec. 27, 1964 at the Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in Dorchester. The Rev. F.H. Sprengler officiated, and the Rev. H.G. Woodworth delivered the sermonette.

Parents of the bridal couple are Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb G. Kieser, Abbotsford, and Mrs. Rena Quade, Hastings, Neb.

For her wedding, the bride wore a floor length gown of peau satin. The scoop neckline and elbow length sleeves were accented with embroidered Alencon lace. The fitted bodice was styled with an overlay of lace at the waistband. Unpressed pleats fashioned the controlled skirt, which swept into a regal chapel train and was topped at the waistline by a flat bow. A petit crown of lace and pearl with crystal drops held her bouffant veil of sheer illusion. She carried a white Bible set in a lace cover, on which was mounted a white poinsettia and stephanotis set in holly foliage with white satin streamers.

Attending the bride were the sisters of the bride, Miss Muriel Kieser, Abbotsford, maid of honor, and Miss Marjorie Kieser, Eau Claire, bridesmaid.

The Rev. D.R. Patterson, Chester, Neb., was best man, and Dennis Kieser, Abbotsford, brother of the bride, served as groomsman. Ushers were Gary Dassow of St. Louis, Mo., and Warren Puhl of Bruce.

The bridesmaids wore floor length gowns of Kelly green and royal brocade with scoop necklines and elbow length sleeves accenting the fitted bodices. The dome skirts were fashioned at the sides and back and with a bow at the front waistband. A velvet rose set in peaks of pearls held their blush veils of Kelly green. They carried bouquets of red poinsettia and white pomps, set in holly foliage and red streamers.

Music for the wedding included "Air in G," "Lord, Jesus Christ, be Present Now," "O, Holy Spirit, Enter In," "Jesus, Joy of Man's Desiring," "Praise Be to God, Immortal Praise," "All Glory Be to God on High," "Lord, Who at Cana's Wedding Feast," "O Happy Home" and "Trumpet Voluntary in D." The music was performed by the men's chorus, accompanied by Robert L. Benson on the organ.

The church was decorated with two red poinsettia plants at the altar rail and two baskets of red poinsettias and white gladioli on stands. There were also two flocked Christmas trees with red lights and red candles in the windows.

For the reception, the basement of the church was decorated with green and white streamers. The table centerpieces contained red candles entwined with imitation poinsettia and holly vine. Each centerpiece contained a small paper testament which was opened to a chapter of the Christmas story.

The reception immediately followed the service.

The bride is a graduate of Abbotsford High School and had been employed as a bookkeeper at the Abbotsford Hardware Store. The groom is a graduate of St. John's College and is presently a graduate student at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.

The newlyweds are making their home at 2128 Forest, St. Louis, Mo., 63117.
