Szymanski, Marlene (3 SEP 1966)

On Sept. 3, 1966, Rev. Father Edward Masalewicz celebrated a 10 o'clock nuptial high mass, and Miss Marlene Szymanski became the bride of Mr. Walter Juzwiak Jr.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Szymanski, 109 Maple Street, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Juzwiak Sr., route 2, Thorp, Wis.

For this marriage, the altar of St. Hedwig's Chapel was decorated with bouquets of gladiolas and mums. The bride, coming down the white carpeted aisle on the arm of her father, wore a floor length coat ensemble. The dress was a sheath of rose point lace, having long tapered sleeves and a sculptured neckline stitched in pearl and gleaming crystals. Flat bows tapped the chapel train coat of silk bombazine which was highlighted by a deep border of lace. Imported crystal fashioned the bride's queen crown which secured her bouffant veil of pure silk illusion that was delicately appliqued with motifs of lace. She carried a bouquet of red and white tea roses.

Preceding the bride down the aisle were her three bridesmaids. Their dresses were floor length sheaths of crepe in pink beauty for bridesmaids Delores Milewski and Betty Jane Juzwiak, and capon blue for the maid of honor, Sally Slota. The dresses were highlighted by a back panel and a flattering ruffle formed the elbow length sleeves of the lace empire bodice. Bouffant bustle veils secured to French bows completed their ensembles.

Ronald Cerven, a friend of the groom, was the best man. The other two attendants were Ronald Szymanski, brother of the bride, and James Juzwiak, nephew of the groom.

The mother of the bride appeared at the wedding ceremony in a two piece sheath of pink matelassé with a corsage of red and white tea roses. The dress was trimmed with beaded rhinestones. A pink hat and matching accessories completed her outfit. For the evening, Mrs. Szymanski chose a blue gathered crepe dress, trimmed with a bow at the waistline, and again, she had matching accessories.

Mrs. Walter Juzwiak Sr., a mother of the groom, selected a two piece suit of peacock blue maltase and a red and white tea rose corsage and matching accessories for the morning mass. At the wedding dance, Mrs. Juzwiak wore an evening rose lace dress.

At 12 o'clock, a wedding breakfast was held at St. Hedwig's Quonset for the bridal party and immediate family. A dinner was served at 5:30 p.m. for 400 guests, and following the dinner, music wwas played by Alvin Styczynski and his Polka Band from Pulaski, Wis.

The bride is a graduate of Thorp High School and the Accredited Beauty Culture School of Eau Claire. She was employed at the Powder Puff Beauty Salon in Eau Claire. The groom also graduated from Thorp High School and is engaged in farming.

After a wedding trip through the Midwest, the couple will be living at Route 2, Thorp.

Candace Slota and Cheryl Rogalski were in charge of the bride's book. Hostesses were Joan Malinowski and Rose Pszeniczny.
