A very pretty wedding took place at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Neillsville on Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 2 o’clock by Rev. Bauman, when Miss Elnora Ulman, the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Ulman of York, was united in marriage to Mr. Calvin Mills, the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Mills of Weston.
The bridal pair was attended by Mrs. Everett Shaw, sister of he bride as maid of honor and Miss Carol Asplin, cousin of the groom as bridesmaid. The groom’s attendants were Mr. Everett Shaw and Lee Mills.
The bride was beautifully gowned in white satin and lace and wore a veil of white tulle caught with a bridal wreath. She carried a shower bouquet of yellow roses and baby breath. The maid of honor was attired in pale green chiffon, the bridesmaid in pale pink chiffon. They carried bouquets of pink carnations and baby breath. The groom and his attendants wore dark blue suits.
Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents for about 120 guests. The rooms were beautifully decorated in white, pink and green. The waitresses were Miss Carol Huntley, Miss Violet Johnson, Miss Hilda Edens and Miss Frances Schafer.
