Peterson, Paula Lee (3 JUL 1971)

Miss Paula Lee Peterson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Peterson, Unity, and Gary William Jensen, son of Mr. and Mrs. DuWayne Jensen, Spencer, were united in marriage by the Rev. Bervie Scott Saturday, July 3, 1971.

The 7 p.m. ceremony took place in the United Methodist Church, Spencer.

Mrs. Darrel Roder was organist and Miss Diane Mulvaney the soloist.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride was attired in a floor length gown of white crepe. The bodice and sleeves were exquisitely embroidered with Venetian lace. Her fingertip veil of illusion was attached to a floral crown. She carried a colonial bouquet of orchids encircled with baby’s breath and white pixie mums.

The maid of honor was Miss Jane Hopan, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and the bridesmaid was Miss Elisabeth Benninger, Mannedorf, Switzerland. They wore floor length A-line dresses of lavender dotted Swiss, trimmed with lace and orchid ribbon. Their puffed veils were attached to floral headpieces. Bouquets of orchid and white daisies completed their attire.

The groom’s attendants were Joseph Hagen, Madison, the bets man, and Brian Jensen, Spencer, brother of the groom. The groom’s cousins Mark Jensen, Spencer and Craig Benning, Unity, performed the ushering duties.

The bride and groom’s sister, Rita Peterson and Sharon Jensen were the candle lighters for the ceremony.

A reception was held in the church parlors following the ceremony.

The new Mrs. Jensen graduated from Colby High School and Wisconsin State University, River Falls, in May of this year, with a degree in Physical Education. She was a member of Delta Psi Kappa, an honorary physical education sorority.

Her husband graduated from Spencer High School in 1968 and is now serving with the United States Air Force, stationed in Minot, North Dakota.
