LaZotte, Linda (Marriage - 27 June 1970)

Miss Linda LaZotte of Minneapolis, Minn., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Glenn LaZotte, Jr., of Neillsville was united in marriage to Gordon Gross of Minneapolis, Minn., son of Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Gross of Pierz, Minn., Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Neillsville. The Rev. George M. Nelson performed the double ring ceremony in the presence of 135 guests.

The bride wore a white gown of organza over taffeta, an empire A-line silhouette with a scoop neckline and long bishop sleeves, with a long, flowing train. The gown, sleeves and train were accented with venise lace. She wore a Camelot crown of Venise lace and a shoulder-length veil. She carried a bouquet of pink roses, daisy ‘mums and stephanotis as she was escorted to the altar by her father.

Miss Denis LaZotte was maid-of-honor and Miss Sandi Gross and Miss Carol Hanson were bridesmaids. They wore pink chiffon gowns with scoop necklines, full bishop sleeves and an A-line skirt with a soft gathering at the back. Motif banding encircled the empire waists with Camelot hats and shoulder-length veils. They carried bouquets of white daisy ‘mums and baby’s breath.

Floyd Gross was bestman and Bruce LaZotte and Harvey Gross were groomsmen. Wayne Gross and David Slaby were ushers. Paul LaZotte was the ringbearer and Christine Blum was the flowergirl.

The children’s choir of St. Mary’s sang, accompanied by Mrs. Glenn Short.

A reception was held at Bali-Hai Supper Club, with 135 guests attending. The club was decorated in white floral arrangements with candles.

The bride attended Wisconsin State University-Eau Claire and is employed in the University of Minnesota Hospital. The groom attended the University of Minnesota Dental School and will graduate in June, 1971.

The couple will make their home at 982 15th Ave., Apt. 3, Minneapolis, Minn.
