The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Knutson, Frederic, Wisconsin, was given in marriage by her brother, Roger Knutson, to the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Collinson, Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.). Victoria Nahborn(?), accompanied by Mrs. Caldwell Johnson, organist, supplied the music for the ceremony.

The bride wore a floor length poi de seau white satin wedding gown with an empire waist and long nylon chiffon sleeves. Lace and :earls accented the train and oriented the neckline.

Mrs. Shirley Brehmer, Mukwonago, Wisconsin was matron of honor, with Miss Julie Collinson, Eau Claire and Miss Charlene Jacob, Eau Clare, as the bridesmaids.

Each wore a floor length empire waist gown made of aqua blue crepe. The gown had a lace bodice and long billowy sleeves made of crepe chiffon. The bridesmaid wore a blusher veil, accented with a bow and carried a long stemmed yellow rose.
