    Smith, Mary (Marriage - 20 JUN 1900)

    A very pretty wedding took place at noon Wednesday at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. Smith on the North Side (Neillsville, Clark County), at which their daughter Mary and Mr. Wm. J. Nutting were united in marriage, Rev. E. A. McKinney, of Marshfield, officiating. About seventy-five invited guests were present. The rooms were beautifully decorated with evergreens and flowers, the principal floral decoration being roses. Just at high noon, with Miss Birdie Rossman at the organ, the parties were ushered into the parlor to the strains of the wedding march. The groom was attended by his brother Dumont Nutting and Geo. J. Smith, a brother of the bride. The bride entered on the arm of her father, Miss Laura Sherman, of Cadott and Miss Lottie Calkins, of Boyd, attended as bridesmaids. The contracting couple took their place beneath a flower and ribbon decked arch of evergreen where the words were spoken which made them one. The tables were set on the shady lawn where, on the rose-decked board was spread a most bountiful banquet. Many beautiful presents were bestowed and what with the beauty of the day and the hearty congratulations and good wishes of friends, the young couple make a happy start in their matrimonial life.

    The groom is the son of B. F. Nutting, of the village of Loyal, Clark County, and is a young man of high character the bride, during her short residence in Neillsville, has in a quiet way won the admiration and regard of a goodly circle of friends. They will make their home in the village of Loyal.
