Vine, Mildred Ann (Marriage - 1960)

Mildred Ann Vine and Jeffrey Lane Trimble were married at a candlelight service in Afton Community Church Saturday evening. The Rev. Fred D. Pitman, Garden Village Church, Beloit, read the ceremony. Twin brothers of the bridegroom, Brian and Craig Trimble were candle-lighters. Bronze and gold chrysanthemums decorated the altar.

Chantilly lace over net and taffeta fashioned the bride’s gown which was styled with scalloped scoop neckline, long tapered sleeves and bouffant floor length skirt. A crown of crystal beads and teardrop pearls held her illusion veil. She carried a colonial bouquet of white carnations and pink rosebuds.

Jane Jones, the bride’s roommate when she attended Madison Business College, was honor attendant. Karen Swain, Afton, and Sandra Nicholson were bridesmaids. Their green lace sheath dresses were detailed with net overskirt and their circular veils were held by matching pleated headbands. Gold and bronze chrysanthemums were in the aide’s bouquets.

Julie Thomas, Birchwood, Wis., was flower girl and Keith Johnson, Loyal, Wis., ring bearer. Both are cousins of the bride.

Robert Fox was best man for Mr. Trimble who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lane Trimble, Libertyville, Ill. James Wells and Joseph Wemstrom were groomsmen and Richard Kilmartin and William Millard, ushers. Norman Thierman sang "I Love You Truly" and "The Lord’s Prayer." Mrs. Richard Kilmartin was organist.

Two hundred fifty attended the reception- dance at Afton Town Hall. The Hilltopers, Cambridge, provided the music.

Mr. and Mrs. Trimble have departed on a southern honeymoon. The bride, a graduate of Janesville High School and Madison Business College, was receptionist at Fox Body Corp. Her husband, a graduate of Arlington Heights High School, attended the University of Northern Illinois. He is a sales representative for Fox Go-Bay Carts Inc.

The bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Chester Vine, Afton Road, gave the rehearsal dinner at 5 o’clock Saturday afternoon.

The bride was honored at three variety showers; Mrs. Laurel Kapke entertained at the Monterey Hotel; Jane Jones and Sandra Nicholson as the home of Miss Jones and Mrs. Hugh Vine in the Vine home.
