St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Gilman, was the setting for the ceremony. The church choir sang, with Lucille Kondrasuk as organist.

An ankle length bridal gown of satin was worn by the bride, fashioned with long V-sleeves and detachable train, with daisies at the neckline and on the skirt. Her fingertip net veil was secured by a crown of pearls and aurora. White feathered carnations surrounding a white orchid comprised her bridal bouquet. The bride was escorted to the altar by her father.

Royal blue peau de soie satin gowns were worn by the maid of honor, Mary Ann Bischel, Bloomer, and the bridesmaid, Jan LaBarron, Chippewa Falls.. The ankle length A-line gowns featured elbow length sleeves. Blue veils and crowns with pearls and white short gloves completed their costumes. Circular, ball-shaped pink and white carnations were carried by gold chains.

Richard Van Den Heuvel, Gilman, served as best man. Groomsman was Harold Van Den Heuvel and ushers were Bernard Van Den Heuvel of Gilman and Ralph Swovoda, Bloomer.

Two hundred and fifty guests attended the wedding reception at Koolmo's Club and Ballroom in Gilman from 3 to 5 p.m.

The couple has planned a trip to Canada this summer.
