Stevens, Ione Fae (Marriage - 11 August 1951)

Miss Ione Fae Stevens, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Irving Stevens, became the bride of John Urban, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. John Urban, Sr., at a three o’clock ceremony performed at the Neillsville Methodist Church on August 11. The Rev. Virgil Nulton performed the double ring ceremony. They repeated their vows before an altar banked with baskets of gladiolus and mixed flowers.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, chose a ballerina length gown of Chantilly lace over net and satin. Her fingertip veil fell from a Juliet cap trimmed with seed pearls. She carried a bouquet of white carnations centered with an orchid.

Miss Joanne Stevens sister of the bride, as maid of honor was attired in a gown of green net over taffeta. She carried a colonial bouquet of mixed flowers.

Harold Ammentorp of Milwaukee, brother-in-law of the groom, served as best man. Byron Trachte and Robert Spiegel ushered.

Leland Dopp, brother-in-law of the bride, played appropriate music prior to the ceremony and the wedding march.
