The marriage of Miss Mary Lou Hopperdietzel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Hopperdietzel, and Robert A. Dorn, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lowell Dorn, all of Abbotsford, took place at St. Bernard’s Catholic church, Abbotsford, Monday, December 26.

The bride was given in marriage by her father. The double ring ceremony was performed during a nuptial high mass sung at 4:30 in the afternoon by the Rev. Emil Hodnik.

For her wedding the bride chose a semi-fitted sleeveless street length dress of red brocade with a long sleeved white lace overdress. She wore a triangular lace veil and carried a long stemmed read rose.

Attending the couple were Miss Barbara Merkel of Madison and David Nikolay of Abbotsford, friends of the couple.

The maid of honor was attired in a red velvet dress with empire waist and long sleeves with silver trim and had a corsage of white mums. Her headpiece was a white lace chapel veil.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Dorn greeted their guests at a reception at the Abbotsford city hall.

About 70 guests were in attendance from Athens, Madison, Wauwatosa, Wausau, Fond du Lac, Neillsville, Marshfield, Abbotsford and Evanston Ill.
