Popular Tamarack Girl Bride

At an informal wedding at high noon on Wednesday, December 12, Miss Helen Louise Fairchild, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. L. Fairchild, became the bride of Mr. Wilford C. Green of Balsam township. Only the immediate families and a few intimate friends witnessed the ceremony, which was performed before an arch of evergreens in the home of the bride’s parents by the Rev. Ole Nielson.

The bride entered to the strains of the Wedding March from “Lohengrin,” played by Miss Irlene Kelley, and was preceded to the improvised altar by her little sisters, Phyllis and Mildred, as flower girl and ring bearer, and her bridesmaid, Miss Hazel Green, sister of the groom. Mr. Green was attended by his brother, Mr. Ralph Green.

Following the ceremony, a buffet luncheon was served, and the newly married pair left for their home in Balsam where they will reside.
