------ Frane, Patricia (26 NOV 1966)

Now at home at 414 ½ Lynn St., Horicon, Wis., are the new Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Flick, after a honeymoon trip to northern Wisconsin.

The wedding of Miss Patricia Frane and Wayne Flick took place Saturday, Nov. 26, at St. Bernard’s Catholic church, Abbotsford.

The Rev. Emil Hodnik officiated at the 12:30 o’clock nuptial high mass during which marriage vows were repeated by the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Kalepp of Abbotsford and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Flick of Colby.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her step-father was attired in a floor length gown. The Chantilly lace bodice had a scalloped round neckline. A small bow detailed the empire waist line on the A-line skirt of peau de soie which had an overskirt train edged in lace. A bouffant illusion veil was secured to a crown of pearls and aurora borealis crystals. She carried a bouquet of red Better Time roses and white pompons

Mr. and Mrs. Clement Apfelbeck, brother-in-law and sister of the bride, were the honor attendants. Mrs. Melvin Schneider, another sister, Miss Priscilla Flick, sister of the groom, Charles E. Flick, a brother of the groom, and Ronald Frane, a brother of the bride, completed the wedding party.

Moss green floor length formals were chosen for the bride’s attendants. The frocks were designed with velvet bodices with bateau neckline. The sheath skirts of acetate faille were accented at the empire waistlines with satin and had satin Watteau panels with bow trim. They wore matching green crown pillboxes with bow trim and pouf veils. Gold and white pompons were combined in a cascade arrangement for the matron of honor and yellow and white pompons for the bridesmaids.

Glen Frane, brother of the bride, and Art Remus, brother-in-law of the groom, seated the guests at the church who came from Colby, Abbotsford, Athens, Wausau, Mayville, Horicon, Owen, Dorchester, Milan, Slinger, Elkhorn, Milwaukee, Edgar, Wisconsin Rapids, Unity, West Bend, Dubuque, Ia., Park Ridge, Ill., Cyrene and Bowling Green Mo.

Festivities of the wedding day included a reception, following the ceremony at the Abbotsford city hall, dinner at 4:30 o’clock at the church hall and dancing in the evening at Sportsmen’s Park, Colby.

Both the bride and groom are employed at Mayville Metal Products where the new Mrs. Flick is employed in the factory and her husband is an arc welder.
