Rohland, Teresa (22 JUL 1972)

The Rev. A.F. Hellert of Nazareth Lutheran Church, Withee, performed the double ring ceremony on Saturday, July 22, 1972, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, which united Miss Teresa Rohland, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edmond Rohland of rural Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), and Gerald Rakovec, son of Mr. and Mrs. Cyril Rakovec of rural Greenwood (Clark Co.). The bride's father escorted her to the altar, which was adorned with floral arrangements of white gladiolas and mums.

Soloist was Richard Steiner, accompanied by Miss Amber Nirva at the organ.

The bride's gown was floor length lace and white sheer trimmed with satin ribbon around the shoulder and under the bodice. Her three-tier floor length trailing veil was connected to a small cap made of lace. The gown was fashioned with long full sleeves with large cuffs. She carried a large round bouquet of summer mixed flowers and red roses with baby's breath.

Mrs. Ralph Fetting, sister of the bride, was matron of honor, and bridesmaids were Miss Carol Kaz, Marshfield, Miss Diane Ciomber, Milwaukee, Miss Elaine Rohland and Miss Patty Rohland of Withee. Their floor length gowns of white sheer with multi-colored flowers set in were empire styled with long full sleeves and large cuffs. The bridesmaids dresses were under laid in different colors of pink, lilac, blue, yellow and green, and they wore large white hats with ribbons. They carried baskets of summer daisies with mums tipped to match each girl's gown.

Serving as best man was Ralph Fetting of Spencer, and groomsmen were Michael Rakovec, Greenwood, Terry Rohland, Withee, Edward Kollmansberger of Loyal, and Edward Smrecek of Marshfield. Ushering were Mike Rohland, Melvin Rohland Gene Rakovec, and Cyril Rakovec Jr.

Following the wedding a reception was held in the church hall, with a dance and reception that evening at the American Legion Hall in Owen.

Following a wedding trip to Canada and the western states, the newlyweds will make their home in Greenwood.
