Hemp, Marian (Marriage - 26 June 1954) 

Miss Marian Hemp, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Hemp, and Fred Vornholt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Vornholt, 1108 Prospect St. Neillsville, were married June 26, 1954, at a 2 p.m. ceremony which took place at the Emanuel Lutheran Church of Globe, with the Rev. A. Schumann performing the double ring ceremony before an altar decorated with gladioli, peonies, roses and sweet peas.  

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a Chantilly lace, waltz-length dress, with the collar and yoke outlined with seed pearls.  Her bouquet was made up of a white orchid with a purple throat and pink roses. 

Mrs. Robert Hemp served as her matron of honor and wore a waltz-length dress of net taffeta with a lace bolero in yellow. 

The bridesmaids, Ardith Suckow, Gladys Dux and Mary Pflughoeft, wore orchid dresses identical to that of the matron of honor. 

The groom was attended by A/1c Robert Hemp of Riverside, Calif., and William Seif as best men.  Louis Hoffman and Ronald Klann ushered. 

A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents for approximately 80 guests.  The home was decorated in orchid and yellow.  

The bride is a graduate of the local high school and has employment in the office of the county treasurer.  The groom is also a graduate of the Neillsville High School and is employed at the Neillsville Oil Co. station.  

Guests from Mosinee, Minneapolis, Chicago and Milwaukee attended the wedding.
