Sands, Wendy (06 Aug 1966)

Pink carnations and white gladioli adorned the church altar for the wedding of Miss Wendy Rae Sands and James Richard Resong who were married Saturday, August b6, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Neillsville.

The Rev. George Nelson, pastor of St. Mary’s Church officiated.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. James Sands; and Mr. and Mrs. John Resong, Neillsville.

Mr. Sands gave his daughter in marriage at the 1:30 p.m.ceremony and Mass for which Brother Francis was the organist and the Brothers of St. Pius & choir of DeSota sang. The Communion solo, “The Lord is my Shephard,” was sung by Brother Conrad.

The bride wore a chantilly lace over taffeta dress designed with a scalloped Sabrina neckline, basque bodice and a full skirt having a ruffled tier. The train fell from two bows at the shoulder line and her veil from a leaf cluster headpiece decorated with seed pearls. Her bouquet consisted of pink and white carnations with pink rosebuds.

Miss Kris Englebretson, Loyal, was the maid of honor; and Miss Mary Ann Resong, Neilsville was the bridesmaid.

The aides wore pink floor-length dresses with empire waists, crepe skirts and lace bodices over taffeta and carried white carnations and pink rosebuds. Their headpieces were designed like that of the bride.

John Hoesly, Marshfield, was the best man; and Randall Sands, Prescott, was groomsman.

Kent Dull, Loyal, and Larry Marshall, Neillsville ushered the guests attending from Racine, Loyal, Marshfield, Prescott, Green Bay, Sheboygan, and Iowa.

All of the wedding events including a reception, dinner and dance took place in the Legion Hall at Neillsville.

The bride attended school for the first three years of high school in Loyal and was a 1966 graduate of Prescott High School, Prescott. The groom is a 1966 graduate of Neillsville High School and is employed at Nelson Muffler Co., Neillsville. After a wedding trip to southern Wisconsin the couple will make their home in Neillsville.
