Bruening, Lorraine (Marriage - 4 September 1948)

The Holy Rosary Catholic Church at Kewaunee, was the scene of a wedding Saturday, September 4, (1948) when Miss Lorraine Bruening, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Bruening, became the bride of Thomas Kaczor, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Kaczor of Neillsville.

The mass was celebrated by the Rev. M. Jacowski, while a choir sang.

The bride entered the church on the arm of her father. She was attired in a gown of white satin with full train. The sweetheart neckline was adorned with embroidery of seed beads and pearls. Her fingertip veil was caught in a tiara of orange blossoms. A single strand of pearls, a bouquet of red roses and a white stephanotis completed her ensemble.

Matron of honor was Mrs. Lenore Bruening, sister-in-law of the bride. She wore a yellow dress of rayon faille.

Acting as bridesmaids were Mrs. Dorothy Bruening and Mrs. Christine Bruening, sisters-in-law of the bride, and Mrs. Josephine Mullaby and Mrs. Helen Schultz, sisters of the groom. They all wore identical dresses like that of the matron-of-honor, only in blue. They carried colonial bouquets of pink roses and gladioli.

Anton Kaczor, brother of the groom, was best man. Other attendants were: John, Jr., brother of the groom; and the bride’s brothers, Elmer, Edward and Harold.

Mrs. Elmer Bruening, mother of the bride, wore a street length dress of gray; and Mrs. John Kaczor wore black; their corsages were of pink roses and baby ‘mums.

Dinner was served at 1 o’clock for the family and relatives. A reception was held and supper was served to about 300 guests.

Out of town guests were: Mr. and Mrs. John Kaczor, Sr., and sons, Frank and John, Jr., Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Kaczor and Mr. and Mrs. Leon Schultz, all of Neillsville; Mr. and Mrs. Edward Bruening, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Bruening and Mr. and Mrs. Donald Mullaby and Anton Kaczor of Milwaukee; and Mr. and Mrs. William Spitzock of Chicago.
