Epding, Ardythe Mae (Marriage - 13 October 1956) 

A wedding of interest to many Neillsville persons was that of Miss Ardythe Mae Epding of Wausau to Lloyd Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Smith of Abbotsford.  The bride resided in Neillsville at the time that her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Epding, operated the Merchants Hotel. 

Te Rev. J. C. Rosenau performed the double ring ceremony Saturday afternoon in Grace Evangelical and Reformed Church of Wausau.  Bouquets of fall flowers decorated the altar for the four o’clock service. 

Attending were Miss Diane Epding, sister of the bride, as maid of honor; Sally Epding, another sister of the bride, as flower girl; Charles Von Kanel as bestman; and Vernon Stanton as groomsman.  

The bride wore a ballerina-length own of white nylon lace over taffeta.  Her finger tip veil fell from a double crown of sequins.  She carried a cascade bouquet of roses and stephanotis. 

Following the church services the couple greeted approximately 175 guests at a reception held in the West Side Hotel. 

When the couple left on their wedding trip the bride was wearing a charcoal gray suit with a white orchid pinned to her shoulder-line.  Upon their return they will reside on Route 4, Wausau.
