BERNEICE NELSON & RICHARD BOUND

Repeat Marriage Vows In Methodist Church In Kewannee

 

The Methodist Church in Kewanee was the scene of a lovely family wedding on Saturday, June 27, at 8, when Berneice Nelson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Nelson of Kewanee, became the bride of Richard Bound, son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl J. Bound of Prophetstown. The Rev. Bernard officiated at the double ring ceremony.

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Smith, sister and brother-in-law of the bride served as matron of honor and best man. Dickie Nelson acted as ringbearer.

The bride was lovely in a mint green street length dress with white accessories. The ensemble was enhanced with a white orchid corsage. Mrs. Nelson chose a tan linen dress with matching accessories and wore a pink and white carnation corsage for her daughter's wedding. The mother of the bridegroom wore a flower printed whipped cream crepe dress with a pink and white carnation corsage. The reception was held following the ceremony at Davison's restaurant in Kewanee. Decorations were in pink.

The bride was educated in the Kewanee schools. The bridegroom is a graduate of the Prophetstown Community High School and is employed at Fritz's DX Station.

Following a wedding trip to an undisclosed destination the couple will be at home at 313 Lafayette Street, Prophetstown.
