Marriage vows were exchanged between Helen Arleen Fillingim and AMH -3 La Vern Franklin Kalepp, Sunday afternoon at 3:00 o’clock in Christ Lutheran church. The Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiated at the double ring ceremony during which Herbert Juneau sang "Because," and "The Lord’s Prayer."

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a waltz length dress of pale blue embroidered nylon organza. Her short veil of matching color was attached to a pearl head piece. She wore a pearl necklace and carried a shower bouquet of pink gardenias, centered with two white orchids, backed with lily of the valley.

They wore street length dresses of pink chiffon over net and taffeta with V neck lines, satin trimmed. Their matching veil head pieces were similar to the bride’s. They carried cascade bouquets of blue camellias with blue net and pink ribbon background.
