Sierocuk, Lucille (5 JUL 1947)

St. Hedwig’s Church was the scene of a very beautiful wedding on Saturday morning, July 5th, 1947, when Miss Lucille Sierocuk, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. frank Sierocuk, became the bride of Steve Wojtowicz of Chicago.

The double ring ceremony was performed by Rev. Kaim at 10 o’clock in the presence of relatives and friends before an altar decorated with white peonies.

At offertory "Ave Maria" was sung by Conrad Memlalski, accompanied by the sister of St. Hedwig’s at the organ.

The bride walked down the white carpeted aisle at her father’s side to the strains of Lohengrin’s wedding march. She was attired in a picturesque gown of white slipper satin. Silver beads embroidered the sweetheart neckline that fell from a sheer yoke. Her long fitted bodice and full skirt topped with a peplum ended in a long train. Her gown was charmingly accented with sleeves traditionally pointed at the wrists. Her long veil of illusion edged with lace, fell gracefully from a tiara of beads. The bride’s mother presented her daughter with a bouquet of orchids and glamellias cascaded with stephanotis.

Rainbow colored marquisette gowned the young women who preceded the bride to the altar. Mrs. George Obreski, cousin of the bride, acted as matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Misses Verne Sierocuk, the bride’s sister, in blue, Helen Przywara in orchid, Elaine Sierocuk, sister of the bride, in pink.

Their gowns were styled with round necklines, cap sleeves, snug bodices and a peplum with a full skirt picked up with tiny bows. They wore long gloves and crownless picture hats matching their gowns and pearls, a gift of the bride. They carried glamellias touched up with maleen.

The groom ahd as his best man, Joseph Kudrek. Ushers were Henry Sierocuk, brother of the bride, Henry Wojtowicz, brother of the groom, and Charles Ruzatis. All wore dark trousers and white dinner jackets. The groom wore a white stephanotis boutonniere, and his attendants white carnation boutonnieres.

Little Kayleen Gaida, niece of the groom, acted as flower girl and was dressed in a yellow gown designed as the bridesmaids. Little Tony Suborowicz, as ring bearer, was dressed in dark trousers with a white dinner jacket and carried a heart shaped satin pillow edged with lace and ribbons.

In the solemn part of the ceremony the bride, accompanied by the matron of honor, , carried a bouquet of white peonies to the altar of the Blessed Virgin.
