Ciesielski, Nancy Sue (1 JUL 1972)

St. Bronislava Catholic Church in Plover (Wisconsin) was the setting for the nuptial vows of Miss Nancy Sue Ciesielski and David Clement Schmidt Saturday, July 1, 1972.

The Reverend Francis Przybylski celebrated the 2 p.m. mass for the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert E. Ciesielski, Plover, and son of Mr. and Mr.s Clement Schmidt, Junction City. The Debbie Fisher group from St. Joseph's Church provided the music.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a gown fashioned with fitted Empire bodice of Venice lace. Tiny floral Venice lace motifs enhanced the bodice, mandarin collar and cuffs for the Camelot sleeves. A narrow blue satin ribbon, woven through lace, encircled the waist line. The sheath skirt of organza had two rows of the same lace around the hemline and the chapel train. A bouffant veil of imported English illusion was secured to a Camelot cap trimmed with embroidered Venice lace, floral motifs, and seed pearl petals. The bridal bouquet was a cascade of blue and white carnation interspersed with baby's breath.

Miss Diane Cychosz was maid of honor. Bridesmaids were the Misses Sandy and Sue Schmidt, sister of the groom, and Miss Louis Johnson. They wore powder blue gowns of flocked organza over taffeta in a bell silhouette. The fitted bodices had natural waistlines trimmed with tiny pearl buttons, square necklines outlined with narrow Venice lace, and full sleeves. The waistlines were marked with wide satin ribbon accented with white Venice lace, floral motifs which formed streamers at the back. Each carried a white wicker basket filled with blue and white daisies.

Miss Susan McCormick, a cousin of the bride, served as flower girl.

Robert Ciesielski Jr., brother of the bride, was best man. Mark Ciesielski, brother of the bride, Dan Schmidt, brother of the groom, and Dale Wehlacz, cousin of the groom, were groomsmen. Seating tuests were Noel McCormick, uncle of the bride, and Clarence Schmidt, uncle of the groom.
