Opelt, Rosemary Lyn (Marriage – 4 September 1976)

Miss Rosemary Lyn Opelt and Steven Gary Buchholz were married Saturday, September 4, in a 7 p.m. ceremony performed at the Neillsville United Church of Christ by the Rev. Gary Clark. A reception and dance followed at the Neillsville Country Club.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Rudy Opelt, Rt. 2 Neillsville, and Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Buchholz, Rt. 1 Greenwood. Mr. Opelt presented his daughter in marriage.

For her wedding day, the bride selected an elegant, empire style gown of white knit fashioned with a standup collar, long sleeves and a chapel train. The bodice was adorned with Venise lace and pearls. A Camelot headpiece caught her fingertip veil trimmed with matching lace. She carried a cascade arrangement of peach roses, stephanotis and baby’s breath.

Mrs. Tom Opelt was the matron of honor and Miss Susan Opelt and Miss Kay Buchholz were the bridesmaids. The honor attendant’s rust-hued polyester gown with off-white crocheted lace bodice trim was accented by a bouquet of peach roses, white daisies and baby’s breath. She wore a floral headpiece in her hair. The bridesmaids wore floral knit gowns of rust with blue and held nosegays of blue carnations, white daisies and baby’s breath. Crown headpieces of baby’s breath completed their ensembles.

Tom Opelt served as bestman and Mike Buchholz and David Opelt, as ushers.

Mrs. Wayne Zoutendam was the organist and Mary Jo Short, the vocalist and guitarist.

The new Mrs. Buchholz, who graduated from Neillsville High School in 1974, is employed as a laboratory technician at an area research farm. Her husband graduated from the same school in 1973 and works for an area construction firm.

Upon their return from a wedding trip to Wisconsin Dells, they will live on Rt. 1 Greenwood.
