Wilding, Florence M. (Marriage - 1 Oct 1913)

Mr. Herbert Lee Brown and Miss Florence Marie Wilding were united in marriage at 4 o’clock Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 1, 1913, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Myron Wilding on Clay St., Rev. H.A. Risser performing the ceremony. Miss Daisy Glass sang at a prelude the beautiful solo "Oh Promise Me", and as the wedding party descended the stairs, Miss Vera Snyder at the piano, played a wedding march. The bridegroom was accompanied by Mr. Ernest Snyder and the bride by her father; preceding them came the flower girl, little Virginia Burnett, who scattered roses before the bride as she advanced. Underneath the arch of smilax and roses, from which were suspended wedding bells, the party took their places, and the words were spoken which laid the foundation of a new home. It is pleasant to record a union that bids fair to establish in our community a happy and prosperous household, founded on high ideal, honest of purpose and efficiency.

The groom was brought up in Neillsville, Clark County, was educated in our schools and business college, and has from boyhood conducted himself so as to have the respect of all who know him. The bride has also won the good will and friendship of everyone whom she has met during her residence here. She fitted herself for work at the local business college after finishing her work at the public schools, and has shown tact and skill in various lines of office work at the court house, and making also a wide and friendly acquaintance with the general public.

A four-course luncheon was served after the ceremony by her friends, Vivian Ure, Alice Neverman, Fay Marsh, Lisa Landgarf, Kathryn Austin, and Elsie Snyder; the color scheme of the luncheon being pink and white.

Besides a large number of beautiful and useful presents given by friends and relatives, one gift worthy of special mention was a dining room set presented by the bride’s associate at the court house.

The young couple left on a trip through the Dakotas, Minnesota and Missouri. They will be at home in Neillsville after Jan. 1.
