Miss Mary Kay Rademaker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lester Rademaker of route 2, Gilman and Russell E. Allmann, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Allmann, Colby, were married Saturday, June 3, in a 1 p.m. ceremony at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic church, Gilman, with the exchange of vows before Father Peter Szleszinski.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose a floor length gown with a sheath skirt. The modified empire bodice of chantilly lace was accented with a scalloped scoop neckline, long sleeves and a detachable chantilly lace camelot cathedral train. The bouffant veil of illusion was designed with an organza rose center.

She carried a bouquet of red roses, white carnations and white stephanotis.

Serving the bride as maid of honor was Miss Connie Kolassa of Gilman. Bridesmaids were Miss Sally Allmann of Colby, sister of the groom, and Mrs. April Rademaker of Exeland, a sister-in-law of the bride.

The attendants wore yellow, pink and green floor length dresses of crepe, designed with sheath skirts, empire bodices and detachable trains. They carried floral arrangements of carnations and ivy.

The groom’s attendants were Peter Weddig of Colby as best man and Dennis Turnquist of Greenwood and Norm Rademaker of Exeland as groomsmen. Seating the guests were Bill Grunseth of Ladysmith and Dave Skewczyk of Gilman.

Following the ceremony, a reception for 250 guests was held at Koolmos Ballroom at Gilman, with a dance in the evening at the same hall.
