------ Meyer, Ann B. (10 JUN 1967)

Miss Ann B. Meyer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Russell Meyer of Colby, and Loren Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Forest Johnson of Unity, were united in marriage Saturday, June 10.

Father John B. Pinion, pastor of St. Mary’s Catholic church at Colby, officiated at the services, which were held at 2 p.m. at St. Mary’s. Music during the ceremony was provided by St. Mary’s children’s choir.

The bride appeared before the altar, which was adorned with white gladiolas and yellow mums, in a peau de soie floor length A-line gown. The dress was designed with an empire waist. The front was covered with lace and seed pearls, and the chapel length train was in a coat style. A fingertip veil with a floral headpiece completed the ensemble.

She carried a corsage of white mums and ivy leaves.

Miss Barbara Meyer of Colby, the bride’s sister, was the maid of honor, and Miss Carol Allmann completed the bridal party. Michael Johnson of Unity, a brother of the groom, was the best man, and Dale Mellenthin of Rockford, Ill., was the groomsman. The flower girl was Melanie Allmann.

The bridal attendants wore floor length yellow crepe georgette gowns with empire waists. The pillbox head pieces were covered with yellow georgette. They carried baskets of yellow and white mums and Jack straws with ivy and ribbon.

A reception followed the ceremony at St. Mary’s school and a dinner was served there at 5 p.m. An evening reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents.

The young couple will reside at Wausau, where Mr. Johnson is employed as a video engineer at Channel 9 television. The bride had been employed at Dain-Kalman and Co. in Minneapolis.
