In a double ring ceremony performed by the Rev. Arthur LAESCH at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Casper MARTY of Neillsville at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, Miss Beth Jeanette MARTY became the bride of Walter G. STERNITZKY, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred STERNITZKY of Granton. Flowers, pink and white streamers, and wedding bells formed a background for the rites.

Heavy white satin, princess-style with a lace yoke, seed pearl trim, lace inserts in the sleeves, and Queen Ann collar was worn by the bride, whose lace-edged fingertip and blusher veils fell from a crown of seed pearls. Pink and white carnations fashioned her bouquet. Miss Esther MARTY, sister of the bride, maid of honor, chose pink chiffon over satin with a sweetheart neckline, shirred bodice, and puffed sleeves. She carried pink and white pompons. Otto STERNITZKY, brother of the groom, was best man.

The wedding march from "Lohengrin" was played by Miss Marion WINTER of Granton, niece of the groom, who also accompanied Mrs. Arthur LAESCH as she sang "O Perfect Love". Miss Mary Ann ESSELMAN of Loyal played the piano accompaniment for a cornet solo, "I Love You Truly" offered by Charles ESSSELMAN, also of Loyal.

The bride's mother wore a brown silk dress with cream-colored accessories, and the groom's mother wore a blue silk dress with white accessories. Each wore a corsage of white pompons and pink roses.

A large three-tiered wedding cake centered the bridal table for the wedding supper which was served to about 60 guests after the ceremony, and bridal couple left on a trip to Illiniois, Minnesota, and points of interest in Wisconsin. They will be at home on the groom's farm at Granton after Oct. 25

The following guests from out of town were present at the nuptials: Miss Ida ALTEMUS, Stoughton; Mr. and Mrs. Frank WILCOX and children, Avoca; Mr. and Mrs. Joseph ESSELMAN and family, Loyal; Pvt. Ferd MARTY, Camp Livingston, LA
