Marriage vows were pledged April 16 at Calvary Lutheran Church by Debra Lee Eisentraut, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arne Eisentraut, Rt. 1 Neillsville, and Jerry Jake Cernik, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Cernik, Rt. 3 Neillsville. The Rev. Ronald Nordin officiated at the 3 p.m. ceremony, which was followed by a reception and a dance at the American Legion Hall.

Her matching train length veil was trimmed with Chantilly lace. She carried a cascade bouquet of silk flowers combining pink sweetheart roses, baby’s beath and white carnations with trailing ivy.

Dixie Eisentraut, sister of the bride, was her maid of honor. Acting as bridesmaids were Miss Connie Daugherty and Miss Luann Stephenson, both of Rockford, Il., Mrs. Conrad Kozic of Spencer and Mrs. Clayton Hawley of Merrillan. Their blue halter dresses were topped by dotted swiss jackets with matching ruffle trim. They carried white baskets with pink sweetheart roses, baby’s breath and white carnations of silk.
