Vanderhyden, Ann (13 FEB 1965)

Miss Ann Vanderhyden, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wilfred Vanderhyden, Thorp, became the bride of John Geving, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Geving, New Richmond, Wis., in a double ring ceremony performed by Father Donovan Murlet at one p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13th, 1965 at St. Bernard's Catholic Church, Thorp.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, chose a long white satin gown trimmed with Alencon lace, sequins and seed pearls, being styled with scalloped neckline, bow in back at waistline and long chapel train. Her headpiece was the same as was worn by her grandmother, and she carried a trailing bouquet of American beauty roses and stephanotis.

Mrs. Eugene White, a friend of the couple, was matron of honor, and bridesmaids were Joyce Mielke and Louella Badzinski, both friends of the couple, and Dean Carlson, niece of the bride. They wore dresses of burgundy velvet tops with ice pink brocaded skirts, styled with elbow length sleeves and a bow attached in front at the waistline. There flowers consisted of pink and white carnations.

Flower girls were two nieces of the bride, Becky and Cynthia Vanderhyden.

Best man was a friend of the couple, Eugene White, and groomsmen were Tom Simma, a friend of the couple, and Henry Geving and Sidney Geving, brothers of the groom. Ushers were Quentin Geving and Jerry Micke.

A dinner and reception for 300 guests were held at the church and American Legion Hall, which was decorated with pink, burgundy and white crepe paper streamers and bells.

The bride has worked at the American National Bank, St. Paul, for the past two years. The groom, who is with the U.S.A.F. has just returned from 1 1/2 years stationed in the Philippine Islands, and now will return to duty at Eglin AFB, Florida. After March 10 the new couple will make their home at Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
