Miss Sharon Marie Pflanzer, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ted Pflanzer, route 1, Colby, became the bride of Frank Archambo, son of Mr. and Mrs. Royal Archambo of Abbotsford, on Saturday, July 6, 1963, at St. Bernard's Catholic Church, Abbotsford. The double ring exchanged of vows took place at 11 o'clock before the nuptial high mass, with Rev. Raymond B. Schulz officiating.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, appeared in a floor length gown of rosepoint over taffeta detailed with ruffles at the back. The fitted bodice had a jewel neckline. Her fingertip veil was secured with an open crown of pearls and aurora borealis. She carried a cascade bouquet of roses and feathered white carnations.
