Seibold, Elaine (23 JUN 1957)

The altar of the Immanuel Evangelical and Reformed Church was banked with baskets of pink and white gladioli, carnations and spring flowers on Saturday afternoon, June 23, 1957 when Miss Elaine Dorothy Seibold, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Seibold, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), and Robert Scott Nichols, son of Scott B. Nichols, Lansing, Mich., came before the Rev. Charles Koch to be married in a double ring ceremony.

Appropriate music during the 1:30 o'clock service was provided by Charles Ivey, organist, who also served as accompanist for Judith Behrens, Madison, who sang "Because" and "The Lord's Prayer."

Chantilly lace was featured in the skirt and the headpiece of the ensemble donned by the bride, who was given in marriage by her father. Lace and net over satin formed the skirt of the floor length gown. The bodice was fashioned with a scoop neckline and sleeves that came to points at the wrists. Her fingertip veil of illusion was caught to a cap of lace and seed pearls. Her bouquet was a cascade of pink and white roses.

Pale green dresses and white hats were chosen by the bride for her attendants, Miss Joan Irvin, Greenwood, as maid of honor; Joanne Warren and Susanne Bensend, Madison, as bridesmaids. Their cocktail dresses were styled of peau de soie with bouffant skirts and Sabrina necklines that dipped low in back. They carried bouquets of pink and white carnations.

Herman James Holtan, Whitehall, a friend of the groom, was best man, Larry Vollrath, Amherst, cousin of the bride, and Wm. Anderson Jr., Rockford, Ill., soucin of the groom, doubled as ushers and groomsmen.

The bride's mother wore a gown of dusty rose lace over taffeta, with white accessories and a corsage of white roses and stephanotis.

The date for the wedding was especially appropriate, in that it was the bride's birthday and the 30th wedding anniversary of her parents.

A three-tiered wedding cake plus a birthday cake and anniversary cake were featured at the reception that followed the ceremony in the church parlors. Dinner was served to 150 guests from Lansing and Royal Oak, Mich.; Media, Pa; Rockford and Waukegan, Ill.; Minneapolis, Minn.; Whitehall, Stevens Point, Eau Claire, Long Lake, Cumberland, Madison, Satona, Kaukauna, Owen and Loyal.

The bride is a graduate of the Greenwood High School and the Luther Hospital Nursing School, Eau Claire. The groom is a graduate of the Whitehall High School and the University of Wisconsin, and is employed by the National Cash Register Co., Madison. The bride is employed at Wis. General Hospital. They will reside in Madison.
