Anderson, Paula Rae (26 Aug 1972)

The Rev. David Pankow performed the nuptial rites uniting Miss Paua Rae Anderson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Anderson of Abbotsford, and Lawrence Lenard Mader, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence O. Mader of Menasha. The 3 p.m. ceremony took place Saturday, August 26, 1972 at Zion Lutheran Church in Colby before 300 guests.

The bride approached the altar wearing a white organza gown enriched by Venice appliques. A high collar set off the illusion neckline with the Venice appliques accenting the bodice front to the fitted waist and full skirt, which fell into an attached chapel train. The Juliet sleeves had matching Venice lace at the cuffs.

Her silk illusion veil cascaded from the headpiece fashioned from an organza and Venice lace cluster. The white rose bridal bouquet was centered with a yellow lipped orchid.

Mrs. Marla McGlin of Menasha was the matron of honor, and bridesmaids were Mrs. Betty Handel, Appleton and the bridegroom’s sister, Miss Lynn Mader, Appleton, and Mrs. Donna Olk, Menasha. The miniature bride was Miss Jodi Shulta of Wausau, the bride’s godchild.

The attendant’s gowns were of blue velveray floral print over a white background. The ruffled yolk and renaissance sleeves set off the A-line skirt. They carried baskets of white, blue and yellow mums, and flowers were scattered through their hair.

Completing the wedding party were Richard Rocland of Appleton, who was the best man, and Larry Handel, Appleton, Neal Anderson, Abbotsford, brother of the bride, and Wm. Mader, Sherwood, brother of the bridegroom Budd Vander Heyden, Appleton, nephew of the bridegroom, served as ring bearer.

The bride is a graduate of Colby High School and the Lakeshore Technical Institute in Sheboygan, and was formerly employed as a medical assistant. Her husband is a graduate of Menasha High School and is engaged in the business of farming.

Out of town guests attending the wedding were from Appleton, Menasha, Neenah, Green Bay, Sherwood, Spencer, Marshfield, Madison, Wausau, Fremont, Hilbert, Owen, Dorchester, Unity, Kimberly and Kaukauna.
