Mantik, Sally Kay (5 JUN 1971)

First Baptist Church in Medford was the setting Saturday, June 5, 1971, for the marriage of Miss Sally Kay Mantik, Wausau, and Mark L. Arndt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Arndt, Medford.

The Rev. Albert Stroh performed the 2 p.m. ceremony.

Given in marriage by her father, Sally wore a traditional wedding gown of English lace with detachable train, styled with a molded bodice having a fitted ruffle neckline of sheer organza defined with narrow Venice braid.. The hi-ride waistline was encircled with a band of the narrow Venice braid, and the braid also trimmed the short puff sleeves bordered with a wide ruffle of sheer organza. The semi-bouffant skirt was softly shirred at the waistline and the transparent removable panel train was trimmed with a wide border of the English lace.

She carried a cascade bouquet of white and aqua daisies, baby's breath, and ivy. A small cluster of daisies and baby's breath held her fingertip veil.

The groom's sister, Miss Kris Arndt, Medford, was the maid of honor. The bridesmaids were Mrs. Don Peissig, sister of the bride, Benton Harbor, Michigan; Mrs. Jerald Mantik, bride's sister-in-law, Abbotsford; and Mrs. Norman Dassow, Medford. The bride niece was the flower girl.

The bridal aides wore dresses of flowered white sheer over aqua lining, empire waist, short puff sleeves, mandarin collars trimmed with lace flowers. They wore aqua straw hats and carried large baskets of pastel daisies and baby's breath.

Perry Arndt of Medford served his brother as best man. The groomsmen were Don Peissig, bride's brother-in-law, Benton Harbor, Michigan; Jerald Mantik, brother of the bride, Abbotsford; and Norman Dassow, Medford. The ring bearers was Jamie Armstrong of Park Falls.

A reception and buffet supper in the church parlors followed the ceremony.

The couple are on a wedding trip to southern Wisconsin, after which they will be making their home in Medford.

The new Mrs. Arndt graduated from Abbotsford High School in 1968 and is presently employed as a bookkeeper at the State Bank of Medford.

The groom graduated from Medford High School in 1968 and is a senior at Wisconsin State University, River Falls.
