Grajek, Carol (9 OCT 1965)

Miss Carol Grajek, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Grajek, Lublin, became the bride of Raymond Pawlicki, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Pawlicki, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church, Lublin. Father Edward Cyz performed the 10:30 a.m. marriage ceremony on Saturday, Oct. 9th, 1965.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose a floor length bridal gown of Chantilly lace with a Sabrina neckline, long sleeves and a fitted bodice. The very full skirt had four ruffled tiers and ended in a large seven tiered chapel train. Sequins around the neckline and on the 1st tier and a large organdy bow at center back waist line completed her gown.

Her bouffant veil of English illusion bellowed from a crown of seed pearls and aurora borealis crystal ear drops. Her bouquet was made of red roses centered with a large white orchid and ivy trailings.

Mrs. Dee Grajek, sister-in-law of the bride, was matron of honor, and bridesmaids were Miss Judy Cwikla, Miss Bernice Chudyk, friends of the bride, and Mrs. Frank Siudak, Jr., cousin of the groom. They all wore floor length gowns in red peau de soie, featuring a bateau neckline, long sleeves and a fitted bodice with a bell shaped skirt and a large attached Watteau panel starting at the back neckline.

Their small veils were attached to an open crown pillbox with a white fur trim. They each carried bouquets of large spider mums backed by a green bow and also wore white accessories.

Len Grajek, brother of the bride, was best man, and groomsmen were: Joseph Bielecki, Walter Hendzel, Jr., friends of the groom, and Frank Siudak, Jr., cousin of the groom.

A breakfast and reception were held at St. Stanislaus Church Hall, Lublin, and a dance at the Thorp Legion Hall with music by the Polecats.

The couple will make their home north of Thorp and the groom is a mechanic at Schmidt Chevrolet, Thorp.
