Larsen, Jean (Marriage - 15 October 1952) 

Miss Jean Larsen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Larsen, became the bride of Robert Chadwick, son of Mr. and Mrs. Millard Chadwick, on Wednesday, October 15, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, with Father Peter Zic officiating. 

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, chose a ballerina length gown of Chantilly nylon lace over heavy net and satin.  It was styled with a strapless bodice closed with a row of lace covered buttons, and a lace jacket with long sleeves that came to points at the wrists.  Her three tiered nylon net veil extended from a coronet headdress edged with seed pearls and rhinestones. She carried a colonial bouquet of white assorted flowers featuring carnations. 

Miss Lillian Chadwick as her maid of honor wore a federal gold gown and Miss Joan Liskow as bridesmaid was attired in forest green.  Their gowns were fashioned with velvet waists, matching boleros and with ballerina length skirts of nylon net over satin.  They wore matching head dresses and carried colonial shower bouquets of contrasting colors. 

Louis Kessler and Rene Harder acted as best man and groomsman respectively.  Douglas Larsen, brother of the bride and Kenneth Kessler ushered. 

Following the ceremony a wedding breakfast was served to the immediate relatives at the home of the bride’s parents and at 2:30 o’clock a reception for 140 guests was held there.  The home was artistically decorated with mixed bouquets of American Beauty roses, pink carnations and gold chrysanthemums. Green and gold streamers decorated the dining room. The bride’s table was centered by a huge wedding cake, with small bouquets of matching colors. The entire color scheme was carried out in deep fall shades of green and gold. 

Following a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin the young couple will be at home at Greenwood Route 1. 

The bride was graduated from Neillsville High School and has been employed at the First National Bank.  The groom was also graduated from the local high school and is engaged in farming with his father. 

Guests from out of town attending the wedding included the bride’s grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Kodet of Belvidere, S. D.; Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Dartt, Wall, S. D.; and Mr. and Mrs. Victor Larsen and family of Chicago; Mr. and Mrs. R. O. Aasen of Juneau; Mr. and Mrs. Otto Larsen, Tyler, Minn.; and other relatives from Rib Lake, Greenwood, Owen and Loyal.
