Edblom, Carol R. (1 Feb 1964)

Miss Carol Rae Edblom, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arlyn Edblom, and Allen Hugh Duvall, son of Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Duvall, were united in marriage Saturday, Feb. 1, 1964, in the Trinity Lutheran Church, Unity.

The bride, who was presented in marriage by her father, appeared before the altar wearing a full length gown of Chantilly lace, featuring a modified Sabrina neckline trimmed with sequins and pearls. A full length panel of lace accented the front of the skirt, which was completed with all around tiers of lace edged with sequins.

Her fingertip veil of French illusion was secured to a crown of pearls with lace insertions. The bridal bouquet was a cascade arrangement of pink roses, white pompons and streamers with rosebuds.
