Dern, Carla Kay (Marriage - 29 June 1969)

Miss Carla Kay Dern, daughter of Mrs. Arthur K. Dern and Dean B. Struble, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Struble, both of Neillsville, exchanged wedding vows Sunday at 7 p.m. at the united Methodist Church. The Rev. William Dushek officiated at a double-ring ceremony. Candlelight and bouquets of fresh garden flowers decorated the church as Anton H. Dern escorted his sister to the altar before 125 guests.

The bride’s floor-length gown of candlelight worsted silk was trimmed with galloon lace, as were the three-quarter-length sleeves and the round neckline. It featured a detachable chapel train. Her fingertip veil was of English silk illusion. Ivory roses carried on a Bible were the bride’s flowers.

Mrs. Cherylee Dern of Wisconsin Rapids served as matron-of-honor. Her floor-length gown of light blue linen, with matching lace trim was styled identically to the bride’s. She carried a bouquet of ivory roses with a touch of blue.

Bestman was Dave Thompson of Black River Falls. Ushers were Jim Nozar and Bruce Bremer.

Mrs. Ruth Van Gorden sang “The Lord’s Prayer,” accompanied by Mrs. Jas. A. Musil at the organ.

Fresh garden flowers decorated Bali Hai supper Club, where the 125 guests gathered for a wedding reception.
