Paulson, Judith Rae (Marriage - 20 September 1958) 

The Congregational Church in Neillsville was the setting Saturday for the marriage of Miss Judith Rae Paulson and Leonard Alfred Trainia. The Rev. Frank B. Harcey performed the 7 p.m. double ring candle-light service before an altar banked with pink, white and blue garden flowers. 

The bride, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Paulson, Neillsville, was given in marriage by her father. She wore a white silk taffeta princess style dress.  The very full bouffant skirt, with Alencon lace inserts, was floor length with a full sweep train.  The fitted bodice was accented with a scooped neckline.  Her finger-tip veil cascaded from a taffeta cap headpiece, edged with seed pearls.  She carried a lace covered Bible adorned with Lily of the Valley, stephanotis and pink rosebuds. 

Miss Susan Paulson attended her sister as maid of honor.  Bridesmaids were Miss Joan and Rose Marie Trainia, sisters of the groom. They were attired in waltz length dresses of grape flue iridescent taffeta.  The bouffant skirts were princes style and the bodices with short sleeves, were fashioned with scooped necklines.  They wore matching bow headbands and berry pink shoes, and carried colonial bouquets of shaded pink roses. 

Best man was Giuglio Mainetti of Poughkeepsie, N. Y.  Groomsmen were Richard Goeden, Okauchee, and George Tomko, Milwaukee. 

Susan and Barbara Pankou, as flower girls, were dressed in white taffeta with grape blue sashes and wore bows in their hair.  Their dresses were fashioned with bouffant skirts and puffed sleeves and they carried colonial nosegays of shades of pink roses.  Peter Paulson, cousin of the bride, carried the rings on a white satin pillow. 

A buffet supper for 150 guests was held in the church parlors, followed by a reception at the Legion Hall. 

On their return from a wedding trip to Quebec, Canada, and the eastern states, they will reside in Townsend, Mass. 

The bride is a graduate of Neillsville High School and Mount Sinai School of Nursing in Milwaukee.  She also attended Wisconsin State College in Eau Claire. She will write her state board exams in mid-October in Massachusetts. The groom is a graduate of a college in Schenectady, N. Y., and is a first lieutenant in the army stationed in Ft. Devens, Mass.
