Mathias, Sharon J. (Marriage - 12 November 1966)

The Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kaukauna was the setting Saturday for the wedding of Sharon J. Mathias, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Otto of Kaukauna, and Edwin W. Meissner, son of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Meissner of Rt. 1 Chili. The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. John Mattek before an altar graced with baskets of bronze and yellow chrysanthemums.

Three hundred guests witnessed as Mr. Otto presented his daughter in marriage.

For her wedding, the bride chose a rich white velvet floor-length gown, styled with a scoop neckline and long, tapered sleeves. The floor length skirt of lacy sheath design was trimmed with imported re-embroidered Alencon lace, and was highlighted by tiny seed pearls. The double floor length removable chapel swept train, fastened at the back waistline, was trimmed with imported lace. Her Elizabethan styled head piece, embellished with pearls and crystal tear drops, held her elbow length veil. The bridal bouquet consisted of yellow roses and white carnations centered with an orchid.

Miss Sandra Meissner of Chili was maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Darlene Thiele of Kaukauna, Miss Linda Beil of Chili, and Mrs. Robert Dahlke of Granton. The attendants wore floor length dresses fashioned with brocade bodices and crepe skirts. Watteau trains of brocade were fastened to the back shoulderline. Small hair braid hats held their blusher veils and floor length illusion streamers. Each carried a bouquet of bronze chrysanthemums.

William Mathias, brother of the bride, was best man. Groomsmen were Roger Hansen of Marshfield, Ronald Meissner of Markesan, and Robert Dahlke of Granton. Ushers were Gary Mathias of Kaukauna and LaVerne Meissner of Chili.

The bride, a 1965 graduate of Kaukauna High School, has been employed in a rest-home in Kaukauna. Mr. Meissner, a 1964 graduate of Marshfield Senior High School is engaged in farming on Rt. 1 Chili, where they will reside on their return from a wedding trip in Wisconsin and Michigan.
