Marriage vows were exchanged December 28 at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Marshfield, by Miss Deborah Lynn Farnsworth and William James Nelles. The Rev. Eldore F. Messerschmidt officiated at the 2 p.m. ceremony for the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Darryl Farnsworth, Marshfield, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Nelles, Rt. 2 Marshfield.

The bride’s empire style gown of white velvet with venise lace trim feathered a high neckline, long, full sleeves and a skirt sweeping to chapel train. Matching lace edged her cathedral length veil. She carried an arrangement of red roses and white carnations with pine boughs as she was presented in marriage by her father.
