Miss Mary Kelley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Kelley of Abbotsford, and Aarl Nimz, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Nimz of Wausau, repeated their marriage promises Saturday, November 6, 1965.

Two bouquets of mixed fall mums adorned the altar at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, Abbotsford, where the ceremony took place at 3 o’clock, with the Rev. Raymond B. Schulz officiating.

Mrs. Dean Decker provided the nuptial music for the occasion.

For her wedding the bride chose a gown of velvet and brocaded satin. The fitted bodice with Sabrina neckline and elbow length sleeves was fashioned of emerald green velvet and white brocaded satin was used for the A-line skirt. She wore a pillbox of matching fabric with a short bouffant veil, and carried a nosegay of golden garnet roses and stephanotis with leaves of green velvet.

Miss Beth Brunkhorst of Marshfield, friend of the bride, was the maid of honor, and Robert Slominski of Wausau, a friend of the groom, was best man.

The maid of honor’s dress was made of gold satin with a fitted bodice, scoop neckline, elbow length sleeves and A-line skirt detailed at the back with a bow at the waistline. She wore a matching satin pillbox with a circular veil and carried a nosegay of bronze and yellow pompons.

John Kelley of Abbotsford, brother of the bride, performed the ushering duties.

For her daughter’s wedding Mrs. Kelley was attired in a golden brown suit accented by a corsage of pink cymbidium orchids.

The groom’s mother wore a wine and black dress with a corsage of gold cymbidium orchids.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents, after which a dinner for the immediate families was served at the Colby Hotel.
