Galvin, Burleigh A. (22 AUG 1964)

Miss Burleigh Ann Galvin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John J. Galvin of Abbotsford, and James Raymond Behn, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Behn of route 2, Gleason, were united in marriage Saturday, Aug. 22, 1964, at the First Methodist Church at Marshfield. Vases of red roses adorned the altar before which the Rev. Wesley Dafoe read the service at 7:30 o'clock. During the candlelight ceremony, Miss Mary Hickner sang "Hawaiian Wedding Song" and "The Lord's Prayer." Maldon Plank was the organist.

The bride wore a regal linen dove sheath floor length gown with a detachable train. Venice lace trimmed the Sabrina neckline, elbow length sleeves, skirt hem and train. She had a waist length veil and carried a sheaf of five red roses.

Attending her was Mrs. Nancy Gunning of Barron as matron of honor, and Miss Cheryl Weisenberger as bridesmaid.

They wore identical pink silk linen gowns styled with empire A-line skirts, elbow sleeves and scoop necklines. Each carried a red rose.

Donald Allen of Madison was the best man and Pat J. Galvin of Abbotsford was the groomsman.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the Hotel Charles, Marshfield. Guests from a distance were from Pleasantville, Youngsville and Corey, Pa., Milwaukee, Grafton, Madison, Waupaca, Wis. Rapids, Tomah, Milladore and Merrill.

After Sept. 1, Mr. and Mrs. Behn will be at home at 2550 East Dayton, Madison.

The groom is a Dane County traffic officer and deputy sheriff and his wife is a registered nurse.
