Wnek, Eleanor (12 NOV 1946)

A very pretty wedding took place at St. Hedwig’s Catholic Church on Nov. 12th, 1946, when Miss Eleanor Wnek, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Wnek, became the bride of Clarence Hedler, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hedler, all of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.). rev. Francis Piekarski officiated at the nine o’clock nuptial mass.

The bride was attired in a gown of white satin and long trailing veil edged with lace and fastened to a beaded headdress. She carried a bouquet of white chrysanthemums and wore a double strand of pearls, a gift from the groom.

The groom’s sister, Miss Geraldine Hedler, as maid of honor, was dressed in aqua chiffon velveteen frock with Juliet cap. The bridesmaids, Misses Mary Ann Antoniewicz, Elaine Smigaj and Virginia Jablonski, were dressed in gowns similar to that worn by the maid of honor. They, too, wore Juliet caps, and all carried bouquets of yellow chrysanthemums. Each wore a heart shaped locket, gifts from the bride.

Janet Hedler, a cousin of the groom, wore a white chiffon velveteen dress and carried a basket of small mums. Her costume was complete with a Juliet cap and locket, the bride’s gift to her.

Rodney Roytek, cousin of the bride, attired in a tuxedo, was ring bearer.

The groom and his attendants, Leon Wnek, bride’s brother, Wilfred Hedler and Sylvester Hedler, brothers of the groom, and Eddie Hryniewicki, wore tuxedos.

Mrs. Frank Wnek, the bride’s mother, was attired in a black velveteen dress and a corsage of white and deep rose colored carnations. The groom’s mother wore a dark suit and a corsage of carnations.

Breakfast was served to members of the immediate families and at 5 p.m. a reception for 500 people was held in the P.N.A. Hall. In the evening Ted Wirth and his orchestra provided the music for dancing.

After Dec. 1, Mr. and Mrs. Hedler plan to make a tour of the south.
