----- Rogstad, Marian (21 JUL 1962)

On a honeymoon to the west coast are Marian Sylvia Rogstad and Melvin Thomas Ayers, who were married Saturday, July 21, 1962 at St. Anthony's Catholic Church. The church choir sang the 10 a.m. Nuptial High Mass with Mrs. Edward Trnka as accompanist. Rev. Norbert E. King officiated.

Parents of the newlyweds are Mr. and Mrs. Edward Rogstad of Loayla dn Claude Ayers of Neillsville.

As the bride stood before the altar she wore a floor length nylon chiffon gown in snowy white with neckline detail and waist accent of a delicate Venice lace. The fitted bodice featured long tapered sleeves. Her crown of imported Fleur de Lies blossoms shaped to a forehead "V" and held her bouffant English illusion veil. A cascade of red roses with stephanotis completed her attire.

The bride chose Mary Ellen Bertz of Loyal to be her maid of honor and bridesmaids were Doreen Aumann of Minneapolis and Jeanette Elsinger of Loyal. They were seen in identical gowns of mint green nylon sheer fashioned with pleated bell street length skirts and a fitted bodice with oval neckline and "V" corded front detail. Each carried a heart arrangement of white roses. A navy blue lace dress with white accessories was worn by the mother of the bride.

A cousin of the groom, Herman Garbisch of Eagle River was best man and groomsmen were Pat Mrotek of River Falls and William Erickson of Madison. Ushering duties were performed by Terrance Rogstad, a nephew of the bride, of Loyal, and Michael Endel, a cousin of the groom from West Allis.

A brunch in the church dining hall followed the ceremony and a reception during the afternoon was held at the home of the bride's parents. A supper was served in the church all and a dance was held at the Silver Dome Ballroom in Neillsville.

Mrs. Ayers, who is a 1960 graduate of Loyal High School, is employed at Parkin Ice Cream Co. at Marshfield. Her husband, who is employed at Russell's Furniture and Hardware Store at Neillsville, received his education in the Neillsville High School. The couple will make their home at Neillsville.
