Miss Doris J. Karmas of Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.) and James E.

For her wedding the bride chose a one piece gown designed with an oval neckline, three-quarter length sleeves and bodice extensions forming draped ties, looping in the back. The bell-shaped skirt had soft pleats and long train. Her veil was train length with a flower cluster crown. She carried a bouquet which was made with a white orchid and white daisy mums.
