Lindow, Ardith Mae (Marriage - 4 December 1954) 

Miss Ardith Mae Lindow, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Lindow of Chili, and Frank Arbelovsky, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Arbelovsky of Spencer, repeated their marriage vows on December 4, 1954, at 6:00 p.m. in a candlelight service before an altar decorated with palms and ‘mums. 

The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. E. S. Antrim, pastor of the Evangelical United Brethren Church of Chili.  Two hundred fifty guests attended the ceremony. 

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a white velvet dress designed with a fitted bodice, long pointed sleeves and rounded seed pearl neckline.  Tiny covered buttons closed the back that extended into a sweeping train.  Her veil was of fingertip length of pure French silk illusion.  It was held in place by a Juliet cap of white velvet, trimmed with seed pearls to match the dress.  

She carried a white Bible with a white orchid and baby pompons spray. 

Mrs. William Baumgartner was her sister’s matron of honor.  She was dressed in purple velvet in ballerina length.  The dress was accented by a rhinestone neckline. 

Mrs. Joe Arbelovsky of Spencer and Mrs. Otto Svoboda, Spencer, attended as bridesmaids.  They wore dresses designed like the of the matron of honor in green and wine.  They all wore head wreaths of ‘mums and carried long white hand sprays of large white ‘mums and angel feathers. 

The miniature bride was Kathy Svoboda. She wore a dress identical to that of the bride and carried a similar bouquet.  The flower girls wore dresses designed as the bride’s but in lilac velvet.  Their flowers resembled those of the bridesmaids.   

The miniature groom was Larry Baumgartner and flower girls were Mary Ann Svoboda and Linda Baumgartner. 

William Baumgartner acted as best man for the groom and Joe Arbelovsky and Otto Svoboda attended him as groomsmen.  William Perushek and Marion Lee ushered. 

A wedding reception was held in the church parlors with 150 guests in attendance.  The room was decorated in purple and white streamers and with ‘mum centerpieces.  

The bride is a graduate of the Marshfield Senior High School and the groom was graduated from the Loyal High School.  He is with the U. S. Air Force. 

The young couple will be at home at Merced, Cal., after January 1.
