Full Text

The Presbyterian Church in Plymouth, Michigan, was the scene of a very pretty wedding, Wednesday evening, November 23, when Nancy Thornton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Wood of Rosedale Gardens, Plymouth, Mich., became the bride of John Victor Althouse, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew D. Althouse, of Royal Oak, Michigan.

The bride wore a gown of candlelight satin and chantilly lace and carried white mums with ivy.

Her matron of honour was Mrs. Richard Erdelyi, whose gown was gold coloured satin, while the bridesmaids, Mrs. Jack Crisp and Dorothy Althouse, sister of the groom, wore autumn brown satin. Their headdresses were orange mums and they carried bouquets of gold and rust chrysanthemums accented by wine leaves and heads of wheat. Little Nancy Lee Dallavo, niece of the groom, was flower girl. She wore white taffeta and carried a miniature bouquet.

The groom chose James Raeside, of Royal Oak, as best man. Seating the guests were William St. Clair and Jack Church of Royal Oak, William Snyder of Ann Arbor and James Thornton, brother of the bride.

A reception followed in the church parlors after which the happy couple left amid showers of congratulations and good wishes for a trip to Niagara Falls and Toronto.

John, who is the grandson of the late John A. and Ruperta Althouse, Ridge Road, North Grimsby, is a senior at Western Michigan College in Kalamazoo, Michigan and a veteran of the U.S. Army Air force of World War II.
