Speich, Carol Ann (15 FEB 1958)

The marriage of Miss Carol Ann Speich to Wayne L. Barto took place Saturday, February 15, 1958 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Paul's University Catholic Chapel, Madison.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Speich, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), and the groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Barto of Richland Center.

The Rev. Alvin Kutchera officiated at the double ring ceremony.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a princess gown of white imported silk, peau de soie. Bands of Alencon lace trimmed with seed pearls outlined the empire waistline, low scoop neckline, and long tapering sleeves. Unpressed pleats gave fullness to the waltz length gown. A lace cap decorated with appliqued flowers outlined with seed pearls held the fingertip veil of silk illusion. She carried a white prayer book topped with a shower arrangement of white stephanotis, centered with a white orchid.

Miss Paula M. Prestagaard, Madison, was maid of honor, and Miss Mary Lou Zanoni, Madison, was bridesmaid. They were identically attired in waltz length gowns of ice blue lace over taffeta. The empire bodices were accented with bands of satin ending in tiny bows. Brief matching lace jackets topped their gowns. Their headpieces with matching circular veils completed their ensembles. They carried cascade bouquets of shaded blue and white feathered carnations and chrysanthemums.

Thomas C. Haas, Richland Center, a student at Notre Dame University, was best man, and Aldis Kakalis, Madison, acted as groomsman. Brent Barto, Richland Center, brother of the groom, and Maurice Collins, Madison, ushered.

Following the ceremony a dinner and reception were held at the Eagle's Club.
