Przewoznik, Helen (22 JUL 1951)

LaGrange S.D.A. Church in LaGrange, Ill. was the setting Sunday, July 22nd, 1951 for the wedding of Miss Helen Przewoznik, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert G. Przewoznik, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), and Marvin B. Anderson, son of Gustov Anderson, Albion, Neb. Elder A. Orville Dunn read the ceremony at 2:30 p.m.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white satin with a four foot train. Her white fingertip veil with a pointed crown was trimmed with a two inch lace border and she carried a bouquet of white orchids with an orchid center on a white Bible. White lace and satin ribbon nested the orchid. From the Bible hung white satin streamers with tucked in flowers.

An orchid dotted Swiss crepe formal with matching headpiece from which hung a long streaming orchid ribbon, fashioned the gown worn by Miss Marian Kopfman, serving as maid of honor. Yellow roses decorated with orchid ribbon formed her colonial bouquet.

As bridesmaid, Mrs. Victor Brown, wore a light green dotted Swiss cape similar to the bride’s and her headpiece matched that of the maid of honor except that it was trimmed in light green.

Valerie and Virlip Nelson, nieces of the groom, dressed in yellow dotted Swiss formals, carrying yellow roses in white net baskets decorated with a large yellow ribbon, acted as flower girls for their aunt’s wedding.
