A trip to the southern United States followed the marriage of Miss Margaret J. Sillampa, 602 N. Willow Avenue, Marshfield, and Allan B. Chilar, on Saturday, October 12, 1974 at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Owen.

The Rev. Donald Walczak performed the nuptial rite for the daughter of Mr. and Ms. Carl Sillampa, route 1, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Chilar, route 1, Mosinee. Larry Toboyek accompanied the singing of Miss Carleen Sillampa and Miss Elaine Sillampa. Mrs. William Mahoney played the organ for the 11:30 a.m. rite.

The bride, given in marriage by her parents, was seen in a satin A-line style gown, featuring a full chapel sweep train. Her matching Camelot headpiece secured the chapel length veil and blusher. She carried a cascade bouquet of white orchids, roses and mums.

They donned royal blue satin and white lace gowns and matching royal blue Camelot headpieces with shoulder length veils. Each carried a cascade bouquet of blue, yellow and white roses and carnations.
