As the bride appeared in the church she was wearing a ballerina-length gown of Chantilly bridal lace, the gown having a portrait neckline with sequin and pearl trim, also a Basque bodice and a bouffant skirt. The veil of silk illusion, chapel-length, billowed from a tiara crown glimmering with pearls and sequins. Her bouquet included red roses and white pompons tied with white satin ribbon.

Attending the bridal pair were Mr. and Mrs. Gary Weiler of Colby, Mrs. Weiler donning a ballerina-length gown of silk organza for the occasion. It was styled with a rounded neckline and bell-shaped skirt. Complementing her ensemble was a matching headpiece and she carried an arrangement of mint green chrysanthemums with white pompons.

Dinner for the immediate family was served at the bride’s parents’ home, where the 2 p.m. reception and the 4 p.m. supper were held for relatives and friends. The dance was held at the Atwood Hall.

Mrs. Weiler, a 1961 graduate of Owen-Withee High School, has been employed as a secretary for the Knutson Mortgage and Loan Co. in Minneapolis. Mr. Weiler, who was graduated from Colby High School in 1959, works for the American Motors Corp. in Kenosha, where the newlyweds are residing.
