At a candlelight service performed Saturday at 4 o’clock, Miss Pauline M. Thompson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Thompson, Neillsville (Clark Co., Wis.), was married to Donald G. Speich, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jake Speich, Greenwood. The Rev. E.G. Pfeiffer, pastor of the Reformed Church at Greenwood, read the nuptials at the home of the bride.

A floor length white satin gown, a finger tip veil, a white chrysanthemum headdress, and a snood comprised the bride’s costume. She carried a bouquet of yellow and white chrysanthemums.

Miss Genevieve Zimmer, Neillsville, was bridesmaid, wearing a teal gown designed with a red girdle and a bustle. She wore a red snood and carried a bouquet of yellow and white chrysanthemums. Donald Wahl, Neillsville, was best man.

Following the ceremony a dinner was served at the home of the bride’s parents for immediate relatives and friends. The home was decorated with cream and white chrysanthemums, pine boughs, and candles. Those who attended were Rev. and Mrs. E.G. Pfeiffer, Mr. and Mrs. Jake Speich and daughter, Violet, and son, Gary, and Mrs. Anna Speich, Greenwood.

For her daughter’s wedding Mrs. Thompson wore a dark blue print dress and Mrs. Speich, mother of the groom, wore a blue crepe dress. Both wore corsages of sweet peas. Mr. Thompson and Mr. Speich wore boutonnieres of white chrysanthemums.

The young couple returned Tuesday from a wedding trip to Minneapolis and St. Paul. Mr. Speich is employed by the Federal Farm Loan Association at Greenwood and before her marriage, Mrs. Speich was employed at Eva’s dress shop in Neillsville, Wis.
