Johnson, Altine J. (22 JUN 1946)

A pretty wedding was solemnized on Saturday, June 22, 1946, at 2:30 p.m. when Miss Altine Jeanette Johnson, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Julius Johnson of Houston, Minn., became the bride of William O. Boardman, son of Mr. and Mrs. M.C. Boardman of Thorp, Clark Co., Wis., at the Houston Lutheran Church, Rev. O.A. Anderson performed the double ring ceremony in a setting of beautiful flowers and before a large gathering of friends and relatives.

Miss Ingrid Julsrud played the traditional wedding music at the organ and Miss Rosemary Olson of Northfield, Minn., sang several numbers.

The bride entered the church with her father. Her gown was of imported white marquisette made with sweetheart neckline and full train and long flowing veil of net was held in place by a crown of lilies of the valley and small bunches of the lilies were gathered in ruffles at the bottom. Her bouquet was made up of white roses and lilies of the valley.

The maid of honor, Miss Rosalind Hess from Wauwatosa, Wis., was dressed in a pale green gown of net made colonial style. The bridesmaid, Miss Melva Krueger of Milwaukee, wore a dress of deep yellow, while the junior bridesmaids, Miss Cora Boardman, sister of the groom, and Miss Anita Johnson of Houston, wore pink net all made colonial style.
