Grauman, Judith (17 AUG 1968)

Miss Judith Grauman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Grauman of rural Colby, and Richard H. Schmitz, son of Mrs. Herbert Schmitz of Janesville, were united in marriage Saturday, Aug. 17, 1968, at St. Mary's Catholic Church at Colby.

Father John Pinion officiated at the 11 a.m. ceremony and the children's choir sang.

The church was decorated with mixed bouquets of gladiolas.

The bride wore a linen A-line floor-length gown with a cowl collar. Venice lace accented the elbow sleeves and the cathedral panel train attached at the back. A queen's crown of pearls held her bouffant English silk veil. She carried a cascade of white carnations with an accent of yellow gladiola petals.

The maid of honor was Miss Janice Grauman of Waukesha, a sister of the bride, and bridesmaids were Mrs. Ronald Schmidt of Janesville, the groom's sister, and Mrs. Tom Nehring of Taylor Falls, a friend of the bride.

They wore skimmer A-line gowns of orange chiffon over linen. The gowns head cowl necklines of satin with matching front buttons and back panels. Small bows held their face veils. They carried a topiary ball covered with white, yellow and bronze pompons.

Miss Cathy Brehm of Colby was the miniature bride. She is a cousin of the bride. Her gown was a replica of the bride's.

The groom's brother, Ronald, of Janesville, was the best man, and Roger Wenger, Janesville, a friend of the groom, and Michael Grauman, rural Colby, the bride's brother, were the groomsmen.

The groom's nephew, Kenneth Koenig, of Idaho Falls, Idaho, was the ring bearer.

James Brehm of Colby and Lefe Moseng, Whapton, N.D., were the ushers.

Diner followed the ceremony at St. Mary's gym, and a reception and dance were held at the Colby Hotel, with music provided by The Incidentals.

The bride teaches special education classes for mentally handicapped children, and the groom works at the Fisher Body Division of General Motors at Janesville and is attending Whitewater State University.

Following a wedding trip through northern Wisconsin, the couple will make their home at 635 Harding, Janesville, Wis.

Wedding guests attending from out of town came from Janesville, Sparta, Tomah, Norwalk, Taylor, Eau Claire, Waukesha, Wausau, Idaho Falls, Idaho, Bryant, S.D., and Whapton, N.D.
