Greisch-Geltemeyer Nuptials Are Held Saturday Evening
{With Photo of Bride}

Miss Patricia Ann Greisch was the bride and David W. Geltemeyer, the bridegroom, in a service of marriage that was held Saturday at six o'clock in St. Paul's Lutheran Church. The Rev. Arnold E. Wenger was the officiant.

Two bouquets of white gladioli and pink charming ladies were placed upon the altar and there were white satin pew markers.

Elroy Begalke, soloist for the occasion, sang `The Lord's Prayer' and `Because.' The organist, Mrs. James Bayens Jr., accompanied him and played other music for the nuptials.

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Achsel, 2119 Maryland Ave., are the bride's parents and the other principal is the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Geltemeyer, 219 Dicke Ave., Sheboygan Falls. The stepfather of the bride gave her in marriage.

The bridal group of five attendants consisted of Mrs. Ted Nebel, who came from Oshkosh to be matron of honor, three bridesmaids, Miss Joanne Henning, Miss Carol Pfotenhauer, the bride's cousin, and Miss Donna Kloppmann, former college roommate from Green Bay, and one in a junior role, Pamela Tuuri, Milwaukee, another cousin of the bride.

Each wore a light blue nylon sheer dress over taffeta with a diamond-stitched design on the fitted bodice and a Sabrina neckline. The cummerbund of taffeta with bustle for back interest was another detail. The street-length skirt was made of nylon sheer over taffeta. Nylon braid fashioned the crowns in petal style with pearl trim. The face veil of silk illusion matched the dress. White satin leaves were backing for the colonial bouquet of pink tea roses and pink carnations which each bridal aid held.

Gown of the bride was designed of lace and nylon tulle and was made with short sleeves and scalloped, Sabrina neckline with fitted lace bodice. The bouffant, floor-length skirt of nylon tulle had a lace overskirt. An elbow-length bridal veil of silk illusion had a hand-rolled edge and was held by a nylon braid crown in petal design with pearl trim. Tea roses and white feathered chrysanthemums adorned the prayerbook carried by the bride with ribbon streamers completing the arrangement.

A resident of Sheboygan Falls, Patrick Bowser, had the duties of best man and the trio of groomsmen, Richard Greisch, the bride's brother, Gary Geltemeyer, Sheboygan Falls, brother of the bridegroom, and Patrick Healy of the same city, the last two in roles of ushers.

They came from Minneapolis, Minn., Menominee, Mich., Chicago, Ill., Antigo, Rice Lake, Oconto, Sister Bay, Green Bay, Menasha, New London, Appleton, Oconomowoc, Milwaukee, Clinton, Madison, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac and Manitowoc.

After a trip to northern Wisconsin and Mackinac Bridge, the couple will be residing at 641A Algoma Blvd., Oshkosh, their at-home date to be Aug. 29. the bride was graduated from North High School in 1954 and from Wisconsin State College, Oshkosh, in June. She received a B.S. degree in education and will be teaching third grade in Omro this fall. The same college is the one at which the bridegroom will be a junior this fall. He is taking the liberal arts course. Three years he served in the U.S. Marine Corps and previously received his diploma from Sheboygan Falls High School, class of 1954.
