Cieslik, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Cieslik, Chippewa Falls, and Herman W. Rust Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Rust Sr., Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.). Father H.L.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a floor length gown of chiffon faille imported Shiffli embroidered lace embellished the colonial sleeves and empire styled bodice featuring a demi-scoop neckline.

Harmonizing veils were secured to French bows. Each girl carried a cascade of shaded strawberry and white carnations.
