Phillips, Linda Kay (25 JUL 1970)

Miss Linda Kay Phillips of Wautoma, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Phillips, and James M. Wulk, son of Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Wulk of Edgar, exchanged marriage promises in a double ring ceremony at St. Bernard's Catholic Church, Abbotsford (Clark Co., Wis.), Saturday, July 25, 1970 at 4 o'clock.

The ceremony was witnessed by the Rev. Emil Hodnik, pastor of St. Bernard's Catholic Church, and the Rev. Roger S. Tellock, pastor of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Curtiss.

Mrs. Martin Schultz of Abbotsford was the organist, and the church choir sang.

For her wedding the bride made her won gown designed in a princess A-line style with detachable train. The bodice of iridescent lace over crepe was trimmed with lace applique around the neck. A headpiece fashioned with a rose, lace and sequins, held her elbow length veil of illusion. She carried a bouquet of red roses.

The bridal attendants were attired alike in floor length mint green flocked dotted Swiss, princess style with the belt which they made themselves. All carried white baskets with tinted mint green carnations and white pompons.

Mrs. Jack Magnin, a sister of the bride, was matron of honor, and another sister, Miss Janet Phillips, and a sister of the groom, Mrs. Gerald Birch of Chippewa Falls, attended the bride.

John Wulk of Edgar served his brother as best man, with Walter Prahl Jr. of Wisconsin Rapids and Gerald Birch of Chippewa Falls as groomsmen.

Seating the guests at the church were Ernest Johnson of Monroe, a cousin of the bride, and Alan Lierman of Wausau, a friend of the groom.

For her son's wedding, Mrs. Wulk wore a turquoise dress and jacket ensemble with beige accessories, complemented by a corsage of pink roses and white carnations.

Festivities of the wedding day included a dinner after the ceremony at the church, a reception and dance at Rib River Ballroom.

Three friends of the bride assisted her at the reception: Miss Karen Harke of Wautoma was in charge of the guests book, and Mrs. Walter Prahl Jr. of Wisconsin Rapids and Mrs. Harland Hoesly of Brooklyn, cut the cake.

The groom was graduated from Newman High School, Wausau, in 1960, is the owner and operator of Jim's Shurfine Foods in Abbotsford. His bride is a 1965 graduate of Blanchardville High School.

The new Mr. and Mr.s Wulk are making their home at 207 South Fourth Street, Abbotsford.
