The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Wrobel, La Crosse, Carla Rae Wrobel, became the bride of Kenneth Peter Hansen, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Leland Hansen of Granton (Clark Co., Wis.), Saturday, Jan. 27, 1962. The wedding, which took place at St. Mary’s Pro-Cathedral, La Crosse, was performed by Monsignor Kundinger at 11 a.m.

As she approached the altar the bride wore a gown of white delustered satin which was trimmed with pearls and extended into a chapel train. Her elbow length veil was caught to a crystal crown and she carried red Happiness roses and stephanotis entwined with pearls.

Mrs. Leo Pfaff of La Crosse attended her sister as matron of honor and bridesmaids were Diane Hansen, Granton, and Sharon Wrobel of La Crosse. Pamela Wrobel of La Crosse was the junior bridesmaid. She is a niece of the bride. They wore dresses of red velveteen with white fur headpieces. White fur muffs with red Happiness roses completed their ensembles.

Mrs. Wrobel saw her daughter’s wedding in a dusty rose embroidered organza over taffeta dress, and the mother of the groom wore a beige brocade tunic outfit with moss green accessories. Each was presented with a rose orchid and carnations corsage.

Serving as best man was Harold Kaiser of Milwaukee, with Carl Wenzler of Madison and Jon Fisher of Granton as groomsmen. Junior groomsman was Craig Wrobel of La Cross, who is a nephew of the bride. Flower girl and ring bearer were Lorraine Hansen, the groom’s sister of Granton, and Sammy Pfaff of La Crosse, the bride’s nephew. Ushering duties were performed by Gary Clay of Minneapolis, Minn. and Russell Balge of Madison.

A dinner and reception were held at the Chateau Supper Club at La Crosse. The bride is a graduate of the Winona Secretarial School, Winona, Minn. Her new husband is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin at Madison and has accepted a position in Windsor Locks, Connecticut where they will make their home. A honeymoon trip will be spent in Minneapolis.
