Grabowski, Victoria Mae (Marriage - 4 July 1970)

Miss Victoria Mae Grabowski, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John V. Grabowski of Gilman, was united in marriage to Victor A. Gray, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Gray of Chili, Saturday at 1:30 p.m. The Rev. L. L. McCormick performed the double ring ceremony in the United Methodist Church in Chili.

The bride wore a floor-length gown in Edwardian style of imported rayon organza with Venetian lace and pink satin ribbon trim, large puffed sleeves and a detachable Watteau train. She wore a matching Venetian Camelot headpiece with pink ribbons and veil of English illusion as she was escorted to the altar by her father. She carried a bouquet of white bridal roses, interspersed with pink daisies and greens in the background for color.

Miss Patricia Grabowski was maid-of-honor. Miss Julia Lato and Miss Jeanne Immerf were the bridesmaids. They wore floor-length gowns of pink georgette and Chantilly lace, with Venetian lace trim, and wore matching pink flower petal-covered Camelot headpieces. They carried wicker baskets of pink cascading daisies.

Douglas Gray was bestman and John. D. Grabowski and Harland Schultz were the groomsmen. Ushers were Tony Grabowski and Randy Gray.

The processional and recessional were played by Helen Grimm. Soloist was Sherman Sleper, who was accompanied by Mrs. Kathleen Gray.

A reception was held in Gilman, with from 250 to 300 guests attending. The bridal table and gift display was decorated in pink and white streamers and wedding bells.
