Vieau, Mary Lynn (Marriage - 21 March 1970)

Given in marriage by her father, Miss Mary Lynn Vieau, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Vieau of Rt. 1 Merrillan, became the bride of Herman H. Seebandt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Seebandt of Rt. 1 Neillsville at 1 p.m. March 21, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. The Rev. George M. Nelson officiated at the double-ring ceremony.

For her wedding the bride chose a floor length Empire styled bridal gown fashioned with a peau d’ange lace bodice featuring long tapered sleeves and a high neckline. Appliqués of lace traced the A-line skirt of peau satin that was highlighted by a sweeping detachable train. She carried a bouquet of white roses and hyacinths.

Sandra Vieau served her sister as maid-of-honor, Claudean Lezotte, sister of the groom, was bridesmaid. They wore dresses of blue lace and organza that featured Empire styled bodices of lace fashioned with baby doll sleeves and mandarin necklines. A back panel of lace accented the A-line silhouette. Harmonizing veils were secured to a petal cluster. Each carried a colonial bouquet of blue carnations and white roses.

David Boehm of Black River Falls was bestman and John Vieau was groomsman. Thomas Vieau and Stanley Raatch seated the guests.

Music was provided by Sister Elise and the Children’s Choir of St. Mary’s Parish.

A lunch was served at the Sportsman’s Club followed by a reception at the Beau Vieau tavern in Hatfield with 150 guests attending.

Following a wedding trip to some of the mid-western and southern states, Mr. and Mrs. Seebandt will reside at 604 W. Blodgett St. Marshfield.

The bride is a graduate of St. Joseph’s Hospital School of nursing in Marshfield and is employed as a registered nurse at the hospital there. The groom is a senior at Wisconsin State University-River Falls and is a member of the Delta Theta Sigma fraternity.
