Freimund, Barbara Ellen (20 JUN 1970)

A double ring ceremony uniting Miss Barbara Ellen Freimund and Michael John Fasse took place Saturday afternoon, June 20, 1970, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Milan. Rev. Ferdinand Timler read the 2:30 o'clock vows.

A traditional wedding gown of organza and lace was worn by the bride. It had a detachable train and was styled with a fitted bodice of lace with Sabrina neckline, accented with pearls and had long, tapered sleeves of lace. The bouffant skirt had a divided overskirt of organza bordered with lace. The lace trimmed train extended into a full chapel sweep. The bouffant veil of illusion was secured to a pearl and crystal crown accented by organza bows. She carried a white orchid surrounded by red roses.

The attendants wore floor length formals of chiffon over taffeta styled with standup collars of lace and long sheer sleeves, the amid of honor in mint green, and the bridesmaids in maize. Their short bouffant veils were attached to headpieces of satin bows with floral clusters.

The maid of honor carried a ball of yellow and white centered daisies, and the bridesmaids' bouquets were white with yellow.
