Servin, Brita Ann (Marriage - 12 February 1966)
Wedding vows were exchanged Saturday in a double ring ceremony in St. Johnís Evangelical Lutheran Church in Neillsville, uniting in marriage Miss Brita Ann Servin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred J.

The bride approached the altar graced with gold vases filled with white chrysanthemums, with her father. For her wedding she chose a lace-over satin gown, styled with a fitted bodice and an ankle-length bouffant skirt, enhanced with a full eight-foot train of lace. The rounded neckline was studded with rhinestones. A fingertip veil flowed from an heirloom pearl and crystal-studded crown. Her bouquet was red roses and white stephanotis, entwined with ivy and white ribbon, and fashioned in the form of three heart-shaped rings.
Her maid of honor was Miss Dianne Peterson of Rockford, Ill. She was attired in a light blue floor-length lace-over-satin dress. She carried a crescent bouquet of white carnations and blue ribbon.
