Vine, Virginia (Marriage – 29 November 1975)

Marriage vows were exchanged November 29 at the Neillsville United Church of Christ by Miss Virginia Vine and Paul Fennema, both of Kenosha. The Rev. Gary Clark officiated at the 3 p.m. ceremony for the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Vine, Rt. 2 Granton, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Fennema, Kenosha.

The bride appeared in a Victorian-style gown of ivory organza over satin detailed with imported French Chantilly lace and seed pearls. The attached chapel train was edged with a wide flounce of matching lace. Baby’s breath was entwined in her hair, and she carried an arrangement of light pink roses, baby’s breath and ferns as she was presented in marriage by her father.

Mrs. Larry Schully, Madison was the matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Mrs. Bill Knoff, St. Francisville, La., and Miss Kristine Vine, Rt. 2 Granton. They wore brown velvet skirts accented with light apricot blouses and complimented by wide-brimmed straw hats with brown velvet ribbon trim. Wicker baskets filled with yellow carnations, rust mums and baby’s breath completed their ensembles.

The groom was attended by Mark Fennema, Kenosha, as bestman and by Jim Fennema and Tom Fennema as groomsmen. Guests were seated by Paul Vine, La Crosse, and Jeff Vine, Rt. 2 Granton.

Soloists were Mrs. Mark Fennema and Miss Julie Knoff. Mrs. Wayne Zoutendam was the organist.
