Her bridal bouquet was a white orchid surrounded by yellow roses and white carnations.

Bridal aides were Mrs. Russell Lyons of Neillsville, sister of the bride, as matron of honor, Annette Hannan, another sister of the bride, and Donna Bardell, a cousin of the bride as bridesmaids. They wore identical gowns of green satin with hoop skirts.

The groom was attended by James Hannan, brother of the bride, as best man. Robert Hannan, another brother of the bride and Donald Sturtz, a brother of the groom, as groomsmen.

A dinner was served at the church parlors for 70 guests. The decorations were green and white wedding bells.

After October 4, they are to be at home at Loyal. Their wedding trip took them to Canada.
