Stai, Grace (19 OCT 1952)

Norman Dittner claimed Grace Stai as his bride Sunday, Oct. 19, 1952 at the English Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer at Eau Claire. Reading the double ring rites at 2 p.m. was the Rev. Herbert Juneau. A reception in the church parlors followed the nuptials.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Stai, Rt. 20. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Dittner, Eleva, are the bridegroom's parents.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white slipper satin entrain, styled with a sweetheart neckline and long sleeves. Her fingertip veil, edged in lace, was fastened to a crown of seed pearls, white roses and pompoms.

Mrs. Donald Curlen, Fall Creek, as matron of honor, wore a gown of rose lace over net. A lace jacket was worn over the strapless bodice of the dress. Mrs. Duane Briggs, Eau Claire, serving as bridesmaid, wore a similar gown in blue. Both aides carried boqueuts of white chrysanthemums and yellow pompons.

Penny Blackseth, Eau Claire, cousin of the bride, acted as flower girl. Her gown of white net was trimmed with satin bands and she carried a basket of flower.

Maynard Dittner, Eau Claire, served as his brother's best man. Duane Briggs, Eau Claire, was the groomsman, and ushers were Gordon Walker, Osseo and Johnny Curlen, Eau Claire.

The couple left for a wedding trip in northern Wisconsin. They will make their home at 418 1/2 W. Madison St. after Oct. 26. (The Eau Claire Leader)
