Elsasser, Paula (Marriage – 14 September 1974)

Miss Paula Elsasser became the bride of Jack Oldham in a 2 p.m. ceremony performed Saturday, September 14, at the Neillsville Methodist Church by the Rev. William Noble. A reception was held afterwards at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Langreck on Court St. in Neillsville.

The bride, presented in marriage by her father, is the daughter of Mrs. Lucille Cherry, Curtiss, and Donald Elsasser, Pittsville. Mr. and Mrs. Ray Oldham, Rt. 2 Neillsville, are the groom’s parents.

A bouquet of white carnations and red roses with white ribbon streamers complemented the empire style bridal gown of satin with fitted sleeves, and bodice of Chantilly lace. A pleated ruffle formed the high collar, and a deep lace ruffle edged the hemline and chapel train. The bouffant veil was caught be a headpiece of Venice lace, ribbons, and seed pearls.

Mrs. Connie Grubofski, Pittsville, was the matron of honor, and Mrs. Mary Langreck, Neillsville, the bridesmaid. Their orchid empire style gowns of polyester crepe, shaped by a back-tied sashing were fashioned with long, Juliet sleeves, and featured self-fabric neckline ruffling. Each carried an orchid carnation surrounded by white carnations with white and orchid ribbon streamers.

Attending the groom were Fred Grubofski, Pittsville, as bestman, and Bruce Rochester, Neillsville, as groomsman.

Mrs. Jas. Musil was the organist.

The new Mrs. Oldham is a 1968 graduate of Pittsville High School. Her husband attended Neillsville Public schools, and is employed by a local firm. The couple will live on Oak St. in Neillsville.
