Giese, Ellen Gail (14 Jul 1973)

Peace Lutheran Church in the town of Frankfort (Marathon Co.) was the setting of the July 14, 1973 wedding of Miss Ellen Gail Giese, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Giese, route 1, Edgar, and David Harold Syring, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Syring, also of route 1, Edgar.

Rev. L. Davidson performed the 1 p.m. ceremony before the altar bedecked with apple blossoms.

Mrs. Dennis Telschow as the organist, and Edward Mielke Jr. sang “The Lord’s Pryaer” and “Take My Hand Dear Father.”

Given in marriage by her father, the bride chose a gown of nylon organza and Chantilly lace with bishop sleeves, scalloped lace trim with sequins on the bodice and skirt, modified waist, A-line skirt, and detachable chapel sweep train. A Camelot headpiece secured the lace edged cathedral veil. She carried a sweetheart bouquet of yellow sweet roses, white carnations and Fuji mums.

Miss Barbara Ormond of Neillsville, a friend of the bride, was her maid of honor. The bridesmaid was Miss Linda Bauman of Edgar, a cousin of the bride. The attendant’s dresses were styled with a sheer bodice, baby doll sleeves, and modified A.-line skirt with self-ruffle flounce, the maid of honor in orchid and the bridesmaid in pink. They wore floral headpieces and carried a casual bouquet of pink carnations, yellow daisies and yellow baby’s breath.

The miniature bride was Miss Marsha Shepherd of Mosinee, and the ring bearer was Joel Waldinger of East Peoria, Illinois.

Attending the groom were Russell Giese, the bride’s brother, as best man, and Larry Syring, the groom’s brother. Terry Bauman and Ricky Syring provided the ushering services.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the bride’s home, a dinner in the church hall, and then a dance in the evening at the Trianon Ballroom.

The new Mrs. Syring is a 1970 graduate of Colby High School, and attended the University of Wisconsin, River Falls for two years. She is employed at Crestline in Wausau. Her husband graduated from Stratford High School in 1967, and is engaged in dairy farming.

After a wedding trip to Mackinac Island, Michigan, the couple will be at home at route 1, Edgar.
