Wibben, Bonnie Jean (23 OCT 1965)

Christ Lutheran Church of Abbotsford was the setting for the exchange of marriage vows between Bonnie Jean Wibben and Theodore B. Polzin Saturday, October 23, 1965. The Rev. F.H. Sprengler officiated at the 2 p.m. ceremony, at which Robert Benson was the organist as Mrs. Marge Daellenbach sang “The Lord’s Prayer” and “O Perfect Love.”

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wibben of Colby and Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Polzin of Abbotsford.

Attending the couple were Mrs. Donald Wibben as matron of Honor, and Donald Wibben as best man. The Misses Nancy Wibben of Colby and Esther Polzin of Abbotsford were bridesmaids, and Eugene Frane of Mayville and Robert Wenzel of Colby were groomsmen.

The bride wore a floor length gown of Chantilly lace with scalloped Sabrina jewel trimmed neckline on the Basque bodice. The bouffant skirt of lace with nylon tulle ruffles at the hemline in front featured a back of alternating tiers of lace and tulle. Her bouffant silk illusion veil was secured to a queen’s crown of lace edged with pearl and accented with aurora borealis. Her bouquet was a bridal arrangement of red and white roses.

The attendants wore parakeet blue floor length gowns of peau satin with bateau necklines. Small bows trimmed the front of the A-line skirts and the backs were completed by Watteau panels with large bow trim. They wore matching velvet cabbage rose headpieces with pouf veils, and carried bouquets of yellow and white gardenias.

A reception was held at the Colby City Hall, and a wedding dance was held at Sportsmen’s Park.

Guests were present from Abbotsford, Wausau, Chippewa Falls, Curtiss, Owen, Medford, Chetek, Marshfield, Stetsonville, Janesville, Bloomer, Wisconsin Rapids, Unity, Fond du Lac, Dorchester, Atwood, and Mondovi.

Both the bride and groom are employed at the Packaging Corporation of America at Colby, where the couple will make their future home.
