------ Burrow, Carolyn W. (21 JAN 1967)

Miss Carolyn W. Burrow and Patrick J. Miller were united in marriage Saturday, January 21, at a 1:30 p.m. nuptial high mass in St. Mary’s Catholic church, Colby. Rev. John B. Pinion officiated and St. Mary’s school choir sang, accompanied by Sister Louise Marie, organist.

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Moore, Medford, and Mr. and Mrs. Leo Miller, Colby, are the parents of the bridal couple.

The bride, given in marriage by her stepfather, appeared in a long sleeved sheath gown of chantilly lace styled with portrait neckline and empire bodice. Her queens coat with chapel length train, was attached at the shoulders with taffeta bows and was detailed with lace appliques. Her bouffant veil was attached to a lace covered pillbox headpiece re-embroidered with seed pearls and aurora borealis crystals. She carried a cascade bouquet of white pompons and red rose buds entwined with ivy and streamers of white lace ribbons.

The bridal attendants were attired alike in gowns of red moire taffeta fashioned with empire waistlines, portrait necklines and watteau trains attached at the shoulders with large bows. Each carried a white fir muff adorned with red roses. Their red puff veils were secured to red floral headpieces. Janet Mill, a sister of the groom, was the flower girl. Her gown was of white moire taffeta and styled like the bridesmaids gowns. Her white puff veil was attached to a white floral headpiece. Her cascade bouquet was of white mums and red rosebuds.

For her matron of honor, the bride chose her sister, Mrs. Francis (Bette) Kauer, Chicago, Ill., and her bridesmaids were two classmates, Miss Joanne Kurth and Miss Georgia Edwards, both of Milwaukee.

Performing the ushering duties were Joe Burrow, brother of the bride, and Robert Overman, Chippewa Falls, and Phillip Henline, Medford.

Altar decorations consisted of chrysanthemums at the main altar and both side altars. At the completion of the nuptial mass, the bride placed the center portion of her bouquet at the foot of the altar of the Blessed Virgin.
