Borreson, when Miss Selma Viola Knight, Lake Forest, Ill., daughter of Mrs. Helga Knight of Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Levi H. Ecke, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ecke, 1603 Washington Av., Marshfield.

Given in marriage by John Lokken, the bride, attired in a white marquisette gown and fingertip veil, carried a colonial bouquet of all white flowers. Her attendant, Miss Hazel Christensen of Milwaukee, wore a frock of blue celanese and carried a bouquet of mixed flowers.

Albert Dering of Prentice, was best man, and Arthur Lokken and Arthur Stadler Jr., ushered.

Special music was provided by Miss Maxine Thorson, organist, William Richardson, violinist, and Eugene Koplitz, soloist.

Following a buffet supper served at the Owen Golf Club the couple left on a brief wedding trip. Upon their return they will reside in Marshfield where Mr. Ecke is employed as a cheesemaker.
