The wedding ceremony which united Jerry Kollath of Abbotsford, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Kollath of Merrill, and Donna Jane Schmidt of Marshfield, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter B.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was attired in a coral shantung with a bone colored street length lace jacketed dress of lace overskirt and short veil and accessories in the bone hue. She carried a coral nosegay of zorina roses surrounded by salal leaves.
