Miss Diane Marg, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Marg of Rt. 3, Neillsville, and Larry Carlson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clare Carlson of 306 Park Street, Neillsville, were married Saturday afternoon, November 17, 1954, at St. John’s Lutheran Church at Neillsville. The Rev. Alfred Schewe, pastor of the church, performed the double ring ceremony before an altar decorated with white and yellow ‘mums. 

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore the traditional white.  Her gown was of white satin with a net overskirt.  The lace bodice was complete with a fitted jacket.  Her fingertip veil was fastened to a satin headband. She carried a bouquet of red roses. 

Miss Ellen Marg, sister of the bride, was her maid of honor.  Her dress was of aqua satin with a velvet jacket and a net overskirt.  Jo Ann Carlson, sister of the groom was her bridesmaid.  Kathy Carlson and Jeannie Thompson acted as junior bridesmaids.  They all wore dresses identical to that of the maid of honor in coral, pink and blue respectively.  All of the attendants carried Colonial bouquets.

A reception following the ceremony was held for approximately 100 guests in the Lutheran School basement.
