Bradley, Karen Ellen (SEP 1973)

Miss Karen Ellen Bradley and Mr. Allen Dale Roder were united in marriage in a double ring ceremony at 1:00 p.m. at St. Philomena Catholic Church in Belmont. Father James Higgins performed the ceremony.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, Mr. John Bradley, approached the altar in a white Victorian styled gown of imported voile, with a shoulder wide V-bib of Nottingham lace, empire bodice, bishop sleeves with lace cuffs. The lower portion of the demi-bell skirt was of matching lace. Her matching cathedral length mantilla of illusion was edged with narrow scalloped Venice lace on half-hat crown. She carried a bouquet of roses and pompoms.

Attending the bride were Mrs. Joanne Kittoe, Lancaster, Wisconsin, as matron of honor; Mrs. Maureen Lucking, St. Paul, Minn., Mrs. Charlotte Leahy, Middleton, Wis., Mrs. Shirlee Lingald, Miami, Fla., and Miss Sue Stensued, Madison, as bridesmaids. They were attired in paisley print, Victorian styled gowns and carried a single yellow mum.

Mr. Bruce Rayhorn, Almond, Wis., was best man, with Mr. Jerry Poehnelt, Milwaukee, Mr. Ron Kittoe, Lancaster, Wis., Mr. Orville Roder, Madison, and Mr. John Bradley Jr., Belmont, Wis., as groomsmen.

Mr. Darrel Roder, Spencer, and Mr. Mark Morgan, Madison, performed the ushering duties.

A reception following the ceremony was held at the Dow-Q-Inn, Dodgeville, Wis.

The couple will live at 5712 Monona Drive, Madison.
