Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Neuendorf, Neillsville, are the groom’s parents.

For her marriage, the bride chose a gown of white angel mist taffeta and Chantilly lace styled with a cathedral-length train and complimented by a shoulder-length veil. She carried a cascade bouquet of orange roses and fall colored pompons.
