Englebretson, Karen Kay (19 JAN 1963)

Appearing before the Rev. Arvid Myhrwold to be married Saturday, January 19, 1963, were Miss Karen Kay Englebretson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Englebretson, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), and Russell Lawrence Dresdow, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Dresdow, route 1, Owen.

Scene of the Dresdow-Englebretson ceremony at 2 p.m. was Our Savior's Lutheran Church at Greenwood. Mr. Englebretson gave his daughter in marriage and Mrs. Myhrwold sand "O Perfect Love" and "The Wedding Prayer," accompanied by Mrs. Warner, organist. Pink gladioli decorated the church altar.

The floor-length bridal gown of Chantilly lace and tulle was styled with a jewel trimmed Sabrina neckline, Basque waistline and full hoop skirt of tulle and scalloped lace panels. Featuring jewel trimmed lace appliques.

The bridal veil of illusion billowed from a crown of aurora borealis crystals. The bride held a colonial bouquet of red roses and white carnations.

Preceding the bride into the church were her attendants, Mrs. Donald Knoll, Greenwood, the matron of honor, and Miss Faye Englebretson, route 1, Owen, the bridesmaid.

The aides wore royal blue and powder blue frocks fashioned with full gathered skirts and fitted bodices with rounded necklines. Their flowers were white and powder blue carnations in colonial formation.

Donald Knoll, Greenwood, was the best man; Jimmy Englebretson, route 1, Owen, the groomsman; and Gary Englebretson, route 1, Owen, and Terry Emberson, Greenwood,w ere the ushers.

The wedding reception in the church parlors followed the ceremony. A wedding trip has been planned for this summer. At present the newlyweds are residing in a home 4 miles north and a half mile west of Withee.

Mrs. Dresdow attended Greenwood High School and her husband is a 1962 graduate of Owen-Withee High School. He is a truck driver and is employed at the Longwood Cheese Factory.
