Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Walter Brandl, Auburndale, and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Frese, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.).

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a white empire styled gown of organza over taffeta and train. Her veil of nylon tulle was attached to an aurora borealis crown, and red and white roses made up her bouquet.
