Sell, Jennifer Ann (11 Nov 1972)

Miss Jennifer Ann Sell, daughter of Mrs. Lorraine Sell, Wausau, became the bride of Clifford H. Sauer, Schofield, son of Mr. and Mrs. Hebert Sauer of Colby, on November 11, 1972 at a 3 p.m. ceremony performed by the Rev. Donald Dinsmore at the First Methodist Church in Wausau.

For her day the bride chose a floor length velvet gown with matching mantilla train veil. The gown was styled with a molded empire bodice with high collar of Venice lace and bishop sleeves that were appliqued with lace and edged with Venice beading. The train veil was secured to a small circular pillbox headpiece bordered with Venice lace.

She carried a crescent shaped bouquet of red roses, baby’s breath, miniature Fuji mums with greens.

The bride’s sister, Miss Diane Sell, was the maid of honor, and bridesmaids were Zoa Abel, Wausau, and Barbara Mickoleski, also of Wausau.

The bridal attendants were attired in two-toned formals designed with a contour shaped empire bodice of rouge velvet, ruffled V-neckline, and long tapered sleeves which had ruffled cuffs. A velvet bow centered the waistline at front and back. The shirred skirts of pink Dacron were detailed with ruffled panels and had a wife ruffled flounce. Each carried a single pink mum tied with a pink ribbon.

Other members of the wedding party were Randall Miller, Dorchester, serving as best man, and Walter Sell, Wausau, the bride’s brother, and Roger Sauer, Colby, brother of the groom.

Performing ushering duties were Frank Mickoleski, Les Laub, Nick Kleparski, Unity, and John Johnson, Dorchester.

Following the ceremony a reception and dance were held at the American Legion Golf Club in Wausau.

The bride is a 1970 graduate of Wausau East High School, and is employed as a medical assistant at Wausau. Her husband is a 1969 graduate of Colby High School, and a 1971 graduate of North Central Tech at Wausau. He is presently employed as an automotive machinist at Wausau Crankshaft.
