Robinson, Jane (10 JUN 1950)


In a 7:30 p.m. ceremony Saturday, June 10, 1950, in the Epworth Methodist Church of Belleville, Ill., Beverly W. Kippenhan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Kippenhan of route one, Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.), took as his bride, Miss Jane Robinson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stewart Robinson of Belleville.


The sanctuary was decorated with palms and ferns, and altar vases filled with white flowers stood at the altar.  Candles marked the altar, and tall white tapers lighted the altar.  Dr. L. S. McKawn officiated at the ceremony.


The bride, given in marriage by her father, was preceded to the front of the church by her maid of honor, Miss June Heidinger of Belleville, and her cousin, Miss Judy Yocum of Gary, Ind., the bridesmaid.  They were met at the altar by the groom and his brothers, Cecil Kippenhan (best man) and Kenneth Kippenhan (groomsman).


The bridal gown of ivory slipper satin was made of redingote style, sweeping into a wide circular train over an anti-bellum formal of nylon tulle.  The fitted bodice had long tapering sleeves and a picture frame shawl collar.  Her fingertip veil of French illusion was secured by a satin cap.  She wore a choker and pearl rhinestone earrings and carried a feather fan, to which white bridal roses and stephanotis were attached.


Misses Heidinger and Yocum wore Nile green and mauve pink gowns of nylon filled net.  The formal length gowns were made with full gathered skirts and strapless fitted bodices, veiled by matching Alencon lace and deep net capes edged in lace.  Their pearl and rhinestone earrings were gifts of the bride.


Ushers were Leland Grieve and Robert Guest.


Mrs. Robinson was attired in a champagne colored dress for her daughter’s wedding, with which she wore cocoa and brown accessories and a brown cymbidium orchid.  Mrs. Kippenhan was attired in a gray print dress, with black and pink accessories.  Her corsage was of Vanda orchids.


After a honeymoon in the Ozarks, Mr. and Mrs. Kippenhan will live in Madison, where the groom is majoring in electrical engineering at the University of Wisconsin.


The groom graduated from the Loyal High School with the class of 1945 and attended the Eau Claire State Teachers College.  While serving in the air force, he spent a year on Labrador.  The bride, a graduate of Belleville Township High School, is a past member of Job’s Daughters.  She was employed in the Belleville office of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., and has transferred to the Madison office.


To the newlyweds, the Loyal Tribune extends its wishes for a long and happy married life.
