Potocnik, Kristi Ann (22 JUN 1968)

Solemn nuptial vows were repeated Saturday, June 22, 1968, uniting Miss Kristi Ann Potocnik and Roger Trevor Williams in matrimony at Nazareth Lutheran Church in Withee. Officiating was the Rev. H.W. Luetkehoelter, assisted by Rev. Charles workman, who gave the wedding address.

The bride, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Potocnik of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), was given in marriage by her father. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Trevor Williams of Waukesha.

At the two o'clock ceremony the altar was decorated with vases of peonies and wedding candelabras. Mrs. Russell Peterson was the organist and Mrs. Bruce Pollock, soloist, who rendered "The Song of Ruth" and "The Wedding Prayer," by Dunlap. David B. Williams served as the acolyte.

For her wedding the bride chose a floor length gown of silk and linen Venice lace in the cathedral design, accented the bell shaped, elbow length sleeves. From the empire bodice designed with lace, an A-line skirt was bordered with more lace. The detachable train swept into a chapel length. From the bow motif, trimmed with lace, was secured a ballerina length veil. She carried yellow roses hung from ribbons over a white Bible.

Mrs. Karen Paulsen, Balsam Lake, sister of the bride, was matron of honor, while the bridesmaids were Miss Kathryn Williams, Madison, and Miss Jean Barager, Owen. Junior bridesmaid was Miss Marilyn Williams, Waukesha.

Identical floor length yellow and white floral print voile frocks in empire styling were worn by the attendants. Their blusher veils were secured by bows of the same fabric as their dresses, and they carried baskets containing yellow daisies.

Ronald Williams of Waukesha was best man. Serving as groomsmen were Tim Williams and John Chlupp, and ushers were Elliot Paulsen, Bill Jacobson, Gust Jon Wangen and Dave Williams. They were attired in white dinner jackets.

The wedding reception and dinner took place at the Owen-Withee High School. Following a wedding trip to Colorado, the couple will live in Darlington.

The new Mrs. Williams graduate from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and will be employed as the Iowa County Home Economics Agent.

Her husband graduated in 1967 from Wisconsin State University, River Falls, where he affiliated with Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity, and is the agriculture instructor at Darlington High School.
