The ushers were Dean Bolte, cousin of the bride, Tim Hayes, and Larry Mickalowski, sons-in-laws of the groom. The wedding planner was Jane Skogstrom, niece of the groom.
The reception was held at the Marina Inn in South Sioux City with the couple�s friends Anita and Kerm Kephart and the groom�s brother and sister-in-law Jim and Marlys Potter serving as reception hostesses. The reception program was facilitated by Dr. Lana Danielson, friend of the couple.
