Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Bogue of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) announce the marriage of the daughter, to Robert Hodd, son of Mrs. Elizabeth Hodd of Withee on Sunday, June 30, 1940. The wedding vows were made in front of a blue and white bower in the bride’s home with the Rev. James Irish of the Methodist Church officiating. The single ring ceremony was used.

The wedding party approached the altar to the strains of Wagner’s Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin played by Miss Ethel Hodd, sister of the groom.

The bride wore a white satin and lace formal. A fingertip veil of white net with a white rose coronet completed her attire. She carried a bouquet of white bridal roses and ferns.

The maid of honor, Edna Bogue, sister of the bride, wore a baby blue net formal with white roses in her hair.

The two flower girls, Beverly Pyatt of Withee and Jean Gerber of Watseka, Ill., wore pink dresses and carried pink roses.
