Roberts, Nancy J. (16 April 1977)

Miss Nancy J. Roberts and Thomas H. Potter, both of Madison, were married Saturday, April 16, in a 1:30 p.m. ceremony performed at the Neillsville United Church of Christ by the Rev. Gary Clark. A reception was held afterward at Bali Hai Supper Club.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John H. Roberts of Neillsville. Mr. and Mrs. James Simenson, also of Neillsville, are the groom’s parents.

For her wedding day, the bride appeared in a cream colored, street length dress fashioned with long, full sleeves gathered at the wrist, a low, gathered neckline and a bloused, drawstring waistline. Her neck was encircled by a yellow, velvet ribbon accented by a rose. She carried a bouquet of yellow roses and hyacinths with baby’s breath as she was presented in marriage by her father.

They were preceded up the aisle by the attendant couples, Lori Dankemeyer, maid of honor, with Lanson Drake, bestman, both of Eau Claire; and the bridesmaids and groomsmen, Janis L. Lechner of La Crosse and Debbie Swartz of Kenosha with Tom Vancaster and Daniel Schaumberg, both of Kenosha.

The street length dresses worn by her attendants were styled similarly to the bride’s gown and fashioned in shades of avocado green, navy and peach, respectively, coordinating with the hues of their partners’ attire. Their bouquets were of daisies and baby’s breath.

Guests were seated by Steve Roberts and Don Kercher.

Musical selections included “Wedding Song” as the processional and “Here, There and Everywhere,” “Treasures” and “Wondrous Love.” Mary Short, Marshfield, and Jamie MacEachern, Madison, played guitars and sang.

A yellow and white color scheme was carried out at both the wedding and the reception.

The bride was honored at a prenuptial shower given by Mae Diamond, and a couple’s shower was given by Candy Karlen, both of Madison.

The new Mrs. Potter attended the UW-Madison for three years, majoring in Art. This fall, she intends to study interior design at MATC. She is employed by a retail store in Madison. Her husband, who has a bachelor of science degree in horticulture, is a graduate of Gateway Technical Institute, Kenosha, and is employed by a greenhouse in Madison. The newlyweds will be at home at 1701 Rowland Ave., Madison, after April 24.
