Fasse, Janet H. (1 Jul 1972)

In an early afternoon ceremony performed by the Rev. Len Stachek on July 1, 1972 in Milan, Miss Janet H. Fasse, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Fasse of Athens became the bride of Helmut Bernt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Bernt, Abbotsford.

Organ music was played by Mrs. William Denzin and Mrs. Thomas Lotter played the guitar. A solo was sung by Mrs. Gary Jicinski.

The bride wore a gown of organza and re-embroidered lace with semi-cathedral train, which was styled with a molded empire bodice, having a round sheer yoke outlined with a band of lace and a wedding band collar of lace.

The Queen Ann sleeves were trimmed with lace, as were the cuffs and waistline. The A-line skirt and train were also edged with lace. The train veil was secured to a Camelot headpiece of Venice lace.

She carried a sweetheart arrangement of white carnations and full mums, accented with yellow, gold coast roses and white satin streamers.
Maid of honor was Mrs. Gordon Jensen of Abbotsford, the bride’s sister. Bridesmaids were Mrs. Virgil Underwood, Athens, the groom’s sister; Miss Marilyn Schreiber, Athens, friend of the bride, and Miss Ursula Wellman, Abbotsford, the groom’s cousin. Flower girl was Miss Brenda Jensen, Abbotsford, niece of the bride.

The bridal attendants wore formals of powder blue chiffon with fitted bodices of puckered chiffon with high ruffled neckline circle with a band of white Venice lace and floral lace threaded with matching satin ribbons.

The long pouf sleeves of the puckered chiffon were trimmed with the lace and ribbon combination, which also detailed the cuffs and waistline. The bodice was attached to an A-line skirt of plain blue chiffon.

They wore powder blue satin bown headpieces with long streamers and long tied veils and carried crescent bouquets of white stardust pompom, accented with blue pompoms.

The flower girl wore a gown like the bridesmaids, only white and short in length.

Best man was Gordon Jensen of Abbotsford, brother-in-law of the bride. Groomsmen were Virgil Underwood, Athens, the groom’s brother-in-law; Gerd Wellman, Abbotsford, the groom’s cousin, and Walter Bernt, Abbotsford, the groom’s brother. Ring bearer was Jeffrey Gregory, Colby, cousin of the bride.

The reception, supper and dance were held at the Trianon Ballroom for 360 guests.

The bride is a 1971 graduate of Abbotsford High School and is employed by Figi’s, Marshfield, as a key punch operator. The bridegroom is a 1966 graduate of Abbotsford High School and works at Northern Star Homes, Stratford.
