Miss Beverly Ann Neitzel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Neitzel of Unity, and Donald Utke, son of Mr. and Mrs. LeRoy Utke of Curtiss, were married Saturday by Rev. Robert V. Langseth in the Trinity Luthean church at Unity, Wis. Miss Sandra Lee Neitzel sang "O Perfect Love," accompanied by Miss Marilyn Messer on the organ. The church was decorated with zinnias and gladioli.
Miss Neitzel carried a white Bible topped with a white orchid and lily of the valley streamers as she appeared for her wedding on the arm of her father. She wore a floor-length dress of lace over satin and tulle styled by long sleeves and a scalloped scoop neckline. Her fingertip veil fell from a pearl crown headpiece.
