Miss Alice Follen was given in marriage by her father, Harry Follen of Arpin, to Eldon D. Fisher, son of Mrs. C. B. Stevens of Spencer at Immanuel Lutheran church in Wisconsin Rapids. The Rev. E. G. Kuechle performed the double-ring ceremony at 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11.


White satin formed the princess-style bridal gown, detailed with a Chantilly lace yoke. The bride’s long veil, which was worn by both of the attendants at their weddings, was trimmed with Chantilly Lace and was attached to a cap. She carried white gladioli and pompoms.


Mrs. Wilbur Fisher of Wisconsin Rapids was her sister’s matron of honor. Another sister of the bride, Mrs. Wilmer Ter Maat of Vesper, was bridesmaid. Both attendants wore light blue moiré, styled with scalloped necklines, extended cap sleeves, and a scalloped peplum. The crescent-shaped bouquets they carried consisted of salmon-colored gladioli, and the y wore matching flowers in their hair.

Carmen Fisher was the flower girl in a frosted pink organdy dress similar to the gowns worn by the senior attendants. She carried a bouquet of pink rosebuds and blue forget-me-nots. Dale Ter Maat was ring bearer.


The Arpin community hall was the setting for a 7:30 dinner, which was attended by 70 guests. A dance followed the dinner.


Mr. Fisher graduated from the Loyal high school with the class of 1941, and he also studied accounting at the Milwaukee vocational school. His bride is a graduate of the Auburndale high school.
