A very pretty wedding took place at the John Herman home early Sunday afternoon, June 11, 1939, when Rosemary Herman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Herman, became the bride of Ervin Hodd, son of Mrs. Elizabeth Hodd.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. James Irish of Thorp.

The bride was beautifully attired in a floor length orchid moiré taffeta with a three quarter length veil with a crown of orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of peonies and roses. Miss Ethel Hodd, her attendant, wore a floor length dress of medium blue net. Miss Marjorie Martinson, honorary ring bearer, was dressed in a gown of orchid and white. Floyd Hodd, brother of the groom, was best man for the occasion, wore a suit of oxford gray. The groom wore a navy blue suit.

The bower was appropriately and beautifully decorated in colors of orchid and white and was banked with flowers and ferns. The couple marched tot eh strains of the bridal chorus from Lohengrin played by Miss Beatrice Brett. After the ceremony a wedding dinner was served to forty friends and relatives of the young couple. The centerpiece of the dinner table was a large beautiful wedding cake decorated with a large ornament of a bride and groom on the top.

Following the dinner the couple left for a short honeymoon trip which they will enjoy at Lake Wissota.

Guests who attended the wedding service were Mrs. Elizabeth Hodd and family, Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Hodd, Mr. and Mrs. Jay Bogue, Mrs. Ed Merten and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Mentges and Mrs. Etta Martinson and children of Withee, Mr. and Mrs. Brett and family and Miss Helen Emmel of Marshfield, Mr. and Mrs. Milton Bombard and children and Mrs. Emma McVean of Loyal, Lucille and Harris Johnson of Owen, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Moss of Freeport, Ill., and Lloyd Stair of Stanley, Rev. and Mrs. Irish of Thorp.

Unlimited happiness is wished the couple by their many friends.
