Brueggeman, Sherry Ann (9 Jun 1973)

St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Athens was the setting of the June 9, 1973 wedding of Mis Sherry Ann Brueggeman of Hamburg and David Gerald Olson of Watertown.

Rev. Ralph Geissler conducted the 12:45 p.m. ceremony uniting in marriage the children of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Brueggeman, Hamburg, and Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Olson, Watertown. Miss Candy Horn of Thorp was the soloist and Miss Robin Huls of Thorp was the organist.

For her wedding the bride chose a gown with Cluny lace bodice, with beaded pearl trim, bishop sleeves, modified waist, slightly gather skirt, lace panel trim and detachable chapel sweep train. A lace Camelot headpiece secured the cathedral length veil.

Miss Pamela Redman of Wausau was maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Miss Cathy Brueggeman and Miss Rose Brueggeman, sisters of the bride, and Miss Janice Olson, sister of the groom.

The bridal attendants were attired in dotted vaille of maise and orchid with self-ruffle square neckline, gather skirt with a ruffle flounce edge and bishop sleeves. Picture hats completed the ensemble.

The groom’s brother, Steve Olson, was his best man. Groomsmen were Ronald Checkai, Madison, David Ertl, Watertown, and Albert Brueggeman, Sturtevant, cousin of the bride.

The ushers were Gene Brueggeman of Black Earth and David Brueggeman of Sturtevant.

Following the ceremony a reception, dinner and dance were held at the Trianon Ballroom.

The new Mrs. Olson is a graduate of Athens High School and is attended the University of Wisconsin, River Falls. Her husband graduated from Watertown High School and is also a student at River Falls.

They are making their home at 218 W. Charlotte Street, River Falls.
