Wyminko, Victoria (7 APR 1945)

Within the altar of St. Mary de Czestochowa, the marriage of Miss Victoria Wyminko, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Wyminko of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), and Mr. Harry Smoczyk, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Smoczyk of Stanley, was solemnized by Father Jerome Kamla on Saturday, April 7th, 1945 at nine o’clock Mass.

The bride was given away by her uncle, Stanley Rutka. Her dress was of velveteen-flowered marquisette with a long train and a sweetheart neckline, bordered with silver sequins. Her fingertip veil was held in place by a crown of orange blossoms. She wore a string of pearls and carried a crystal rosary, both gifts of the groom. Her bouquet consisted of lilies and white carnations with attached streamers.

The bride chose Miss Ruth Smoczyk, sister of the groom, as maid of honor. She wore a formal of white marquisette adorned with silver sequins. Miss Frances Staron, Colleen Smoczyk, another sister of the groom, and Valeria Wincek acted as bridesmaids. They wore formals of white taffeta and net, adorned with gold sequins. The girls arranged artifical gardenias and short veils in their hair. They carried bouquets of light and dark pink carnations. The groom was escorted to the altar by his mother. He wore a conventional blue suit with a white bow tie and a carnation boutonniere. S/Sgt. Pete Smoczyk, in uniform, brother of the groom, was best man. The other attendants, Bob Peterson and Carl Slowiak, wore brown suits and, like the groom, carnations boutonniere.

The bride’s mother wore an orchid suit with white accessories. The mother of the groom wore a two-piece powder blue dress. They and the bride’s sister, Mrs. Ray Kislewski, wore corsages of pink and white roses.
