Elaine Joyce TODD was married Saturday, Sept. 11, to Wayne M. BOOTH of Cumberland, WI. The ceremony was performed at the Sherwood Community church, with the Rev. M.B. FERGUSON, pastor of the Lindsey Methodist Church, officiating. The double ring ceremony was used.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bert TODD of the Granton community. She was given in marriage by her father. She wore a gold street length dress with brown accessories, with shoulder corsage of golden rose buds and with matching flowers in her hair.

The maid of honor was the bride's sister, Mildred TODD. She wore a medium blue dress, with a chain necklace, a gift from the bride, with a corsage of yellow daisies and flowers in her hair to match.

The bridesmaid was Jean FLUEGEL, whose flowers were of autumn gold, in harmony with the fall color scheme.

The best man was Russell BOOTH of Cumberland, brother of the groom, and groom's attendant was William GUENTHER, also of Cumberland. The ushers were Lyle CARY and Wilbur FIELDS.

For the wedding procession to the altar, Mrs. George FLUEGEL played the wedding march. Four girls dressed in blue and yellow formed an aisle of ribbon from the church door to the altar. These girls were Lucille BOOTH, Carrie SPOFFORD, Maxine and Rebecca TODD. Elvira LINDOW of Chili sang, "Oh, Promise Me."

The bride's mother, Mrs. Bert TODD, wore a dress of soldier blue, with corsage of deep pink rose buds. The groom's mother, Mrs. Silas BOOTH, wore a dress of navy blue, with corsage of deep pink rose buds.

The church was decorated with blue and yellow streamers of crepe paper looped across the entry and across the front of the church. An archway stood in front of the altar, with a cross in the center at the top. Cut garden flowers were freely used.

The church ceremony was followed by a reception at the home of the bride's parents. Here the autumn decorations consisted of yellow and blue streamers, with cut garden flowers.

The bride is a graduate of Granton high school and of the Wood county normal at Wisconsin Rapids. She has taught for the past four years in the vicinity of Chili.
