The wedding of Helen Zumstein, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Zumstein, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), to Edward Kwiatkowski, son of Mrs. Victoria Kwiatkowski, Milwaukee, took place at 10 a.m. Saturday morning in the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Owen. Father Raymond Bornbach read the nuptial ceremony.

Attending the couple were Kathleen Zumstein, a sister of the bride, as maid of honor, and bridesmaids were Helen Kwiatkowski, sister of the groom, and Shirley Sobkowiak, cousin of the bride,. Johnny Greshner, a close friend of the couple, attended the groom as best man.

The bride approached the altar for her marriage wearing a lovely gown of white organza, with a chentille and ruching protruding above the cowl with a flying panel on each side having a trim chentille lace and a long sweeping train over slipper satin. Her veil was of imported illusion veiling with three rows of stitching at the hem. It was caught up at the sides to a matching lace crown beaded with seed pearls and rhinestones. She carried a cascade boquet of white roses.

The maid of honor wore a gown of orchid organza with matching lace cowl and four skirt panels. She also wore matching gauntlets and a braided crown.
