------ Wiese, Audrey Ann (18 JUN 1966)

After an extended honeymoon trip, Mr. and Mrs. Ted Calmes will make their home at 533½ Clermont St., Antigo, Wis.

The wedding of Miss Audrey Ann Wiese and Theodore A. Calmes took place at St. Bernard’s Catholic church, Abbotsford, Saturday, June 18.  The Rev. Raymond B. Schulz officiated at the one o’clock nuptial high mass for which St. Bernard’s choir sang with Mrs. Dan Decker as organist.

Mr. and Mrs. Francis E. Wiese of 113 N. Fifth St., Abbotsford, and Mr. and Mrs. Norbert Calmes of route 2, Athens, are the parents of the bridal couple.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was attired in a gown of bonded embroidered lace styled with an empire waist line and lowered neckline.  The front of the A-line skirt was lace trimmed and three rows of lace trimmed the detachable Watteau train that extended from the shoulders.  Her four-tier shoulder length veil was attached to a rosette of white.  She carried a heart shaped bouquet centered with a white orchid and surrounded by yellow garnette roses and white mums.

Attending the couple as honor attendants were Miss Shirley Schuette of Abbotsford and Roger Calmes of route 2, Athens.

Mr. and Mrs. Carlton Pecher of Abbotsford, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Augustine of route 3, Athens, Mr. and Mrs. Gary Lehman of Marathon, and Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Diers of route 2, Athens, Miss Sarah Lee Krug of route 2, Owen, as miniature bride, and Norbert Calmes Jr., of route 2, Athens, as ring bearer, completed the bridal party.

Pat Galvin of Abbotsford and Duane Zettler of route 2, Athens, performed the ushers’ duties.

The bride’s attendants wore identically styled empire dresses with A-line skirts of mint green peau de soie trimmed with white lace.  They wore headpieces fashioned of nylon tulle with mint green rose petals and carried lace fans with yellow carnations attached.

The miniature bride was dressed like the bride and carried a lace fan with yellow roses and white mums.

The ensembles wore by the bride and her attendants were all hand made by the mother of the bride.

About 275 guests attended the festivities of the wedding day which included a reception following the ceremony at the Abbotsford city hall, 4:30 o’clock wedding dinner at St. Bernard’s church hall and wedding dance at Trianon Ballroom.

The bride is a graduate of the Abbotsford high school.  Her husband is a graduate of the Athens high school and Wisconsin state university at Whitewater and is now a teacher of commercial subjects at Merrill.
