York, Christine May (20 OCT 1973)

The First Presbyterian Church at Abbotsford was the scene of the afternoon wedding when Miss Christine May York of Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.) became the bride of Peter Ray Paul Kaz of rural Owen (Clark Co.). Miss York is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James York of Dorchester, and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Kaz of Owen. The Rev. Taylor performed the two o'clock ceremony on Saturday, October 20, 1873. Music was rendered by Misses Peggy and Elaine Sillampa, with Jill Bremer at the organ.

The bride's wedding gown was a white satin dress with V-neck, high waist, and the skirt was overlaid with chiffon. The bodice and full train was trimmed with a triple row of seed pearls and the gown was fashioned by the bride. Her three-quarter length veil was held to a headpiece with a double tier of crown pearls. Her bridal bouquet was of white roses and light and dark blue carnations.

Attending the bride as matron of honor was Mrs. Robert Ours of Payton, Ohio., with bridesmaids, Miss Pamela Cornue of Batavia, Illinois, and Miss Darlene York of Dorchester.

Their gowns were of Royal blue, fashioned with high waistlines, scooping neckline of shimmer knit nylon, accent by white satin tie in the back sashes. Their bouquets were of light and dark blue carnations.

The little flower girl was Kate Kaz, and the ring bearer was John Kaz.

Attending the groom was Jeff Greschner of Longwood as best man, and groomsmen were David Jankee and Michael Kaz of Owen. The ushers were Douglas Lueth and Michael Greschner.

Following the ceremony a reception was held in the church and that evening a buffet supper and wedding dance were held at the Sword at Colby.

The bride is a 1972 graduate of the Abbotsford High School, and is employed by Dr. Gaulke at Colby. The groom is engaged in farming and is a 1971 graduate of the Owen-Withee High School.

Their wedding trip took them to the Eastern states.
