The bride wore a gray suit for the occasion, with wine colored accessories and carried a wedding bouquet of white roses. The groom wore a green suit.

Attending the couple were Mr. and Mrs. Orville Asselin of Eau Claire. Mrs. Asselin was dressed in a glin plaid suit with black accessories and carried a bouquet of yellow roses.

After a short honeymoon, the happy couple will make their home at Milwaukee, where the groom is employed.
