    Barbara Ann Gentry, daughter of Mrs. Roy Gentry and the late Mr. Gentry, was married in a double-ring ceremony August 17 to Vincent Bryce Dudney, son of Mr. and Mrs. Vincent Dudey, Dover.

    The Rev. Don Jones officiated in the Methodist Church in Rossville. Music was provided by Mrs. Joe Campbell, pianist, and Mrs. Don Berkey, soloist.

    The bride chose for her wedding a gown of imported Chantilly lace over nylon tulle. The fitted bodice of lace was fashioned with a sabrina neckline embroidered in erredescent sequins. The very full skirt of tulle featured wide inserts of lace in deep V points, and the wide tulle dust ruffle formed the aisle wide chapel train. A Chantilly lace crown heavily embroidered with seed pearls and sequins held her waist length veil of silk illusion. She carried a bouquet of red roses. Her only jewelry was pearl earrings, a gift of the groom.

    She was given in marriage by her brother, Mr. Bob Gentry.

    Attending the bride was her sister, Mrs. Junior Dick, as matron of honor. She wore a monte blue chiffon dress over taffeta. The fitted bodice fashioned a tiny gathered sleeve that tapered to a V in the back. The full skirt was accented by a cumberbun.

    Bridesmaids were Mrs. Bill Gentry, Miss Maxine Dagg, Dover, and Miss Jeanette Nadeau. They all wore identical dresses in heavenly blue chiffon over taffeta and styled the same as the matron of honor.

    Candle lighters were Miss JoAnn Williams and Mrs. James Crenshaw of Topeka. They wore ice blue chiffon over taffeta fashioned after the bridesmaids’ dresses. They carried white candles trimmed with white glamilias.

    The bride’s mother chose a beige eyelet sheath dress with white accessories. Her corsage was of red roses. The groom’s mother wore a powder blue dress. Her corsage was also of red roses.

    Rodney Dick, nephew of the bride, was ring bearer. Pamella Ketter, niece of the groom, was flower girl. Mr. Gerald Lister, cousin of the groom, served as best man and Mr. Larry Campbell, Dover, was groomsman. Mr. Bill Gentry and Mr. Neil Crow were ushers.

    Following the ceremony a reception was held in the Rossville Community Center. Assisting at the reception were Mrs. Larry Ketter, Mrs. Bob Gentry, Mrs. Jerry Moylan, Mrs. Bennie Dick, Mrs. Ralph Page, Miss Jean Nadeau and Mrs. Max Williams, Kansas City.

    After a wedding trip, the couple will be at home at 1176 Warren Street, Topeka, Kansas.

    The bride is a graduate of Rossville High School and is employed by the Kansas Inspection Bureau in Topeka. The groom is a graduate of Dover High School and is employed by the Gas Service Co. in Topeka.
