The Rev. Harvey E. Schall officiated at the marriage Saturday at 2 P.M. at the Methodist Church, of Kermit Lang, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Lang, Unity, and Marion Wentzel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Wentzel of Curtiss.

The bride was attended by Miss Carejean Molle and the bridegroom’s sister, Nina Lang, as maid of honor and bridesmaid, respectively, and Mr. Lang was attended by the brother of the bride, Clifford Wentzel, of Poynette, best man, and his brother, Roger Lang of River Falls, groomsman.

The bride’s attendants, both from Unity, had gowns styled alike, blue for Miss Molle, and shrimp for Miss Lang. Ruffles decorated the back of the floor length skirts, and the bodices were strapless.

They carried white and yellow carnations tied with white satin ribbon.

The scalloped neckline of the bride’s dress was filled in with a nylon net yoke. Nylon net in combination with lace to match that of the bodice formed her skirt. A crown of pearls and rhinestones held her fingertip veil. She carried red roses and white gladioli.

Friends of the couple, among them several from out of town were greeted after the ceremony at the reception at the Colby city hall.

Out-of-town guests came from Edgar, Stratford, Greenwood, Marshfield, Wausau, Rhinelander, Owen, River Falls, Withee, Oshkosh, Riplinger, New Holstein, Thorp, Green Bay, Madison, Spencer and Bliss, Texas.

The groom is a graduate of Loyal high school and his bride attended Colby high school.
