Schmutzler, Sally (26 AUG 1965)

Miss Sally Schmutzler, Riplinger, became the bride of Sydney Bauer, Colby, at a wedding ceremony held Thursday, August 26, 1965 at the First United Church of Christ, Colby. The Rev. Kenneth Dix officiated.

Parents of the bridal couple are Mr. and Mrs. Woodrow Schmutzler Sr., Riplinger, and Mr. and Mrs. Maynard Bauer, Colby.

Attending the groom were Dennis Boss, best man, of Curtiss, and Allen Schmutzler and Dale Bauer, both of Colby.

The bride wore a gown of Chantilly lace styled with bouffant skirt with a plain front panel and ruffled tiers sweeping into a chapel train. Sequins and Pearls enhanced the Sabrina neckline and ruffles of the skirt. The three-tiered butterfly pouf veil of illusion was caught to a crown of tulled petals edged with pearls. She carried a cascade bouquet of red roses and white button pompons with red garnet roses tied to the ribbon streamers.

(Note: the list of bridesmaids was missing from this announcement)

The bride’s attendants wore street length gowns of royal blue brocaded satin with fitted bodice, scoop necklines and elbow length sleeves. Their bell-shaped skirts were fitted with bows at the back. They wore headpieces with a forward cluster of leaves and loops, trimmed with pearls secured to a circular veil, and carried cascade bouquets of yellow and white mums.

The church was decorated with two large bouquets of white gladiolas at the altar.

Kenneth Schulz sang “The Lord’s Prayer” and “O Perfect Love,” accompanied by Mrs. Vernon Boss on the organ.

A supper in the church parlor and a reception at the Cherokee Hall followed the ceremony.

Guests were present from Indiana, Iowa, Dixon, Illinois, Minneapolis, Fond Du Lac, Shawano, Marshfield, Owen, Menasha, West Allis, Curtiss, Colby, Greenwood, Loyal, Abbotsford, Riplinger, Unity, Spencer and Wausau.

The bride was employed at the Marshfield Clinic, and her husband works for Spencer Sports Products, Spencer. Following a wedding trip to Canada, the couple will make their home in Unity.
