Luther Memorial Church, Sheboygan, was the setting Saturday afternoon for the wedding of Mrs. Nancy Kewin, 3111 N. 10th St., and James Dunton. The Rev. Elmer Larson was officiating clergyman for the 2:30 o'clock nuptial ceremony.

An A-line skimmer in mariner blue petite ottoman was bridal attire for the former Mrs. Kewin. The bateau neckline, short sleeves, and empire waistline were outlined in matching Venice lace. A floor length veil of silk illusion held the bride's velvet flower headpiece, which was centered with pearls and fabric droplets. To complement the ensemble, the bride carried a cascade bouquet of aqua carnations and butterfly roses, accented with Camelia foliage and a shower of white ribbon streamers.

Mrs. Richard Oldenburg attended her sister as matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Miss LuAnn Dunton, sister of the bridegroom, and Mrs. Thomas Lawrence. All of the attendants wore gold A-line gowns featuring back panels and sleeves and necklines trimmed with Venice lace. Headpieces were double bows of silk peau with four tiered face veils.
