Stelter, Gail L. (16 October 1976)
St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church the setting for the October 16 wedding of Gail L. Stelter, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Stelter, Rt. 3 Neillsville, and Donald A. Walker, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Walker, Neillsville. The Rev. Norman W. Lindloff officiated at the 2 p.m. ceremony.
Presented in marriage by her father, the bride appeared in a white princess style gown fashioned with long sleeves of Venise lace, a pearl-trimmed mandarin neckline and a chapel length train. Her fingertip veil was caught by a Camelot headpiece. She carried a basket of trailing ivy with fern accent, white carnations, baby’s breath and apricot silk roses.
Fall colors were used in the cape-sleeved, V-neckline gowns worn by Miss Sandy Volz, maid-of-honor, and Jan Rasmussen and Marlea Lescynski of Marshfield and Diane Walker, bridesmaids. Each held a basket of silk daisies, fresh pompons, sprengeri and baby’s breath.
Rick Ziegler served as bestman and Jim Langreck, Dennis Walker and Allen Mohr, as groomsmen. Guests were seated by Fred Stelter, Jr., of Milwaukee and Tim Wiesman of Madison.
The bride’s nephew, Todd Krehmeyer, was the ringbearer, and her niece, Heather Pagenkopf, as flower girl.
Special musical selections included “The Lord’s prayer” and “Wedding Prayer.”
A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents and a dinner was served at St. John’s school.
The bride was honored at prenuptial showers given by Diane and Linda Walker and by Colleen Blackwood, Jan Rasmussen and Marlea Lescynski.
The newlyweds, both 1974 graduates of Neillsville High School, are making their home at 1105 Grand Ave. in Neillsville. She is employed as a c ashier at dental offices in Marshfield, and he, as a carpenter locally.
