Pernsteiner, Janice (Marriage - 24 January 1970)

Miss Janice Pernsteiner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph C. Pernsteiner, Jr., of Rt. 1 Granton, was given in marriage by her father to Wayne J. Kuhl, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harland Kuhl of Rt. 2, Granton Saturday at 12 o’clock noon at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Neillsville. The Rev. George M. Nelson officiated at the double-ring ceremony. Gladioli and ‘mums decorated the altar and white pompon ‘mums and red carnations marked the pews for the 300 guests.

For her wedding the bride chose a floor-length bridal gown of velvet fashioned with full length sleeves highlighted by deep cuffs of white fur. White fur also appeared on the wedding ring collar and on the sweeping chapel train. An open pill box hat of white fur secured her veil. She carried a cascade of red roses decorated with a falling twine of roses, holly and white ribbon.

Miss Juli Kuhl of Granton, sister of the groom, was maid-of-honor. Bridesmaid was Miss Sherry Lavey, also of Granton, and bride’s matrons were Mrs. Franklin Boh of Neillsville and Mrs. Charles F. Eberhardy of Marshfield, both sisters of the bride. They wore floor-length A-line dresses of flame red velvet fashioned with long sleeves and bateau necklines. Venise lace encircled the waistlines of the A-line silhouettes. Their headpieces were styled of white fur and they carried white fur muffs decorated with a cascade of red roses trimmed with holly and white ribbon.

Jack Downer of Milwaukee was bestman and Bill Kuhl, brother of the groom, Franklin Boh of Neillsville and Tom Elmhorst of Granton served as groomsmen. Ushers were Lennie Reich of Granton and Charles F. Eberhardy of Marshfield.

Mr. and Mrs. Joe Pernsteiner, III, of Granton served as official witnesses.

Sister Elise played the organ and the children’s choir sang.

Approximately 300 guests attended the 1:30 p.m. dinner and reception held at the Bali Hai supper club followed by a dance at the Silver Dome Ballroom.

The bride graduated from Granton High School in 1969 and the groom in 1966. The groom also graduated from the Farm Short Course at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in 1968. He is engaged in farming.

On their return from a wedding trip to Florida and other southern states they will reside on Rt. 1 Granton.
