Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Ed. L. Bogumill and Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Wargolet, both of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.).

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore an A-line empire waist floor length gown styled with long sleeves, pointed at the waist, and scalloped lace with pearls in the front panel. A pearl and lace crown held her full length veil, forming its own train, and small blusher veil attached. White satin shoes and a cascade bouquet of white bridal roses completed her ensemble.

Mrs. Ruth Somers was her sister's matron of honor, and bridesmaids were: Miss Dorothy Lato, cousin of the bride, and Miss Iris Christensen, niece of the bride. They wore A-line empire waist, floor length gowns styled with bell shaped sleeves and Kelly green velvet bodices and mint green crepe skirts.
