An apartment at 109 N. Maple Ave., Marshfield, will be the home of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Sylvester Lovstad, who were married during a 4 o'clock candlelight wedding ceremony performed Saturday afternoon, Nov 3rd, 1962.

Miss Karen Jean Zillmer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Zillmer, was given in marriage by her father to the son of Mr. and Mrs. Carsten Lovstad of Chili during a nuptial ceremony held in Trinity Lutheran Church, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), the Rev. Daniel Zielske officiating.

Miss Kay Walk played for the service and Mrs. Arvid Myhrwold sang "The Lord's Prayer" and "O Perfect Love." Yellow, gold and white chrysanthemums were placed on the altar for the occasion.

Foer her wedding, the bride wore a floor-length bridal gown of nylon organza and soutache lace. A scalloped Sabrina neckline embellished with sequins and seed pearls highlighted the fitted lace bodice and the bells-shaped skirt was fashioned with un-pressed pleats, highlighted with motifs of soutache lace.

Her veil of fingertip length billowed from a floral headpiece. The bridal bouquet included yellow sweetheart roses and white feathered chrysanthemums.

Mrs. Ronald Selk, Chili, the matron of honor, and Mrs. Keith Stump, Greenwood, and Miss Christine Lovstad, Chili, the bridesmaids, wore royal blue sheaths with overskirts and "Little bow" headpieces. Each had an arrangement of yellow and gold feathered chrysanthemums.

DuWayne Zillmer, Milwaukee, was the best man; Robert Zillmer, Kansas City, Mo., and Ronald Selk, Chili, were groomsmen; and Karl Lovstad and Bill Cliver performed the ushering duties.
