At 12 o'clock the bridal couple, attended by Mrs. Eva Wainright as matron of honor, entered the room. Rev. Mr. Rice read the marriage service.
The bride was becomingly attired in a blue cloth traveling suit with hat to match, and carried an armful of white chrysanthemums. Mrs. Wainright, matron of honor, is a cousin of the bride, and wore black sile net over taffeta and carried dark red chrysanthemums.
After the service and elaborate luncheon was served in the dining room. The table was most effective with its decoration of smilax and carnations.
Captain Spong is a native of Oregon and owns the Mineral Springs Hotel. The bride is the youngest daughter of Clara E. Clodfelter, of Portland.
