Miss Carol Oldenhoff of Athens was presented in marriage by her father to Daniel Buss of Abbotsford in a ceremony performed at Trinity Lutheran church, Athens, Saturday, April 24.  The Rev. W. R. Krueger read the service during which Mrs. Lucille Boneske sang “The Lord’s Prayer” and “O Perfect Love”.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Ervin Oldenhoff of Athens and Mr. and Mrs. James Buss of Abbotsford.

For her wedding, the bride was attired in a gown of Chantilly lace designed with tiers of lace on the skirt, accented with sequins and a fitted bodice that featured a scalloped neckline.  A crown of net and pearls with a butterfly design held her bouffant veil.  She carried a bouquet of red roses, white stephanotis and ivy.

Mrs. Dennis Bowen of Tomahawk, a cousin of the groom and Miss Donna Oldenhoff, a sister of the bride, and Mr. Bowen and David Oelstrom of Highwood, Ill., completed the wedding party.

Larry Mueller of Athens and Wayne Schade of Abbotsford seated the guests at the church for the one-thirty o’clock ceremony.

The bride’s attendants were attired alike in floor length gowns of lavender taffeta with a Watteau panel in the back.  Both had bouquets of tinted lavender carnations.

About 170 guests attended the wedding day festivities which included a reception and dance at the Trianon ballroom and dinner at the church hall.  Honored guests at the wedding were the grand parents of the bride, Mr. and Mrs. Kuck, of Athens, and Mr. Oldenhoff of Menomonee Falls and the grand parents of the groom, Mr. and Mrs. Nedry Sterling of Abbotsford.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Buss are making their home on North Second St. in Abbotsford.  The bride, a graduate of Athens high school, and the groom, a graduate of the Abbotsford high school, are both employed at Weyerhaueser plant at Marshfield.
