F.A. Kulig officiating. They were attended by Joe Badzinski, as best man, and Emily Gulczynski as bridesmaid. The second attending couple was Stanley Staszcuk and Gertrude Badzinski. The matron of honor, Ruby Verkuilen, sister of the bride, wore a pale pink gown with the wind dress with matching headdress.
