Blodgett, May Belle (Marriage - 24 Dec. 1946)
Mr. and Mrs. William T. Reasoner are now at home at Flemington, N.J. Their marriage took place on Christmas eve at the Finnish Lutheran Church at Owen.
Miss May Belle Blodgett, daughter of Mrs. Laura Blodgett, of Abbotsford, became the bride of William T. Reasoner, son of Mrs. Elizabeth Reasoner, of Flemington, N.J., on Dec. 24, 1946, in a double ring ceremony, read by the Rev. Karl Keljo at 7:30 in the evening.
The bride, who was given in marriage by her oldest brother, Curtis Blodgett, of Thorp, wore a melon colored wool suit with black accessories. She wore a corsage of white roses and sweet peas.
Attending the couple were Mr. and Mrs. William Maki, brother-in-law and sister of the bride, of Owen. Mrs. Maki wore a dark green ensemble with black accessories. She wore a corsage of pink carnations.
Before the ceremony, while the guests were assembling, Miss Betty June Maki, of Stevens Point, played Christmas carols and then the wedding march. During the ceremony, Lt. Norman Erickson, of Ft. Knox, Ky., sang "O Promise Me" and "The Lord’s Prayer," accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Arthur Wilson.
Following the ceremony a reception was held at the Maki home. A four-tier wedding cake centered the table and a Christmas tree and other Christmas decorations were used in the home.
