Miss Linda Cathy Diers became the bride of Jay Douglas Emling in a 1 p.m. ceremony performed Saturday, August 21, at the Neillsville United Methodist Church by the Rev. William Noble. The newlyweds were honored later at a reception, dinner and dance at the Riviera Supper Club.

Then bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Diers, Rt. 2 Neillsville. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Raebel, Rt. 1 Neillsville are the groom’s parents.

For her wedding day, the bride chose a gown of white sata peau embellished with Val lace and featuring bishop sleeves, a high neckline, and a deep hemline ruffle. Her harmonizing lace-bordered chapel veil of imported bridal illusion was secured to a Camelot headpiece. She carried a cascade of blue and white roses and white stephanotis as she was presented in marriage by her father.

Mrs. Randy Schultz, Eau Claire was the matron of honor and Miss Cheri Diers, Mrs. Dan Krehmeyer and Miss Kay Emling were the bridesmaids. They appeared in V-neckline gowns of blue knit styled with flowing chiffon sleeves and complimented by matching blue picture hats. Their flowers were basket arrangements of blue carnations, white roses, white daisies and lilies-of-the-valley.
