Sazama, Janet (Marriage - 6 June 1951)


Guests from Milwaukee, Stratford, Wausau, Marathon, Oshkosh, Waukesha, Abbotsford, Stetsonville, Dorchester, Shawano, Rozellville, Athens, Milan, Spencer, Edgar and Jackson, Mich. attended the wedding of Janet Sazama,

daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Sazama, and John M. Brill. son of Mrs. Rose Brill, of the town of Hull, Wednesday morning, June 6, at St. Mary’s Catholic church, Colny. The Rev. N. B. Beschta officiated at the double ring ceremony before the nuptial High Mass.  


The bride, who was presented in marriage by her father, wore a gown of white slipper satin, fashioned with fitted bodice with high round neckline of net, and long, tapering sleeves. A V-shaped bib of Chantilly lace formed an over yoke in the front and extended into V-shape in the back. A V-shaped panel of lace, narrow at the waistline and wide at the hemline, extended down the center of the skirt. This was repeated in the center back and ended in the train. The full gathered skirt swept into a long, cathedral train.


Her full-length veil of English illusion was edged with wide lace and caught to a beaded tiara. She carried a bouquet of white roses centered with an orchid.


Miss Joyce Novak, Cresco, Iowa, firend of the bride, was maid of honor and the groom’s two sisters, Mrs. Mary Ann Bailey and Miss Betty Brill, Oshkosh, served as bridesmaids. The groom was attended by James Drost, Ronald Schmidt and James Sazama, cousin of the bride.


All three bridal attendants wore identically fashioned gowns of nylon marquisette over taffeta in yellow, orchid and green, respectively.


They were fashioned with fitted bodices, high round neckline with a double row of off-the-shoulder effects. The full gathered skirts had rosettes of double ruffling at the sides. They wore matching tulle picture hats and carried flower sprays of yellow, pink and green carnations with ribbons to match their gowns.


Rita, Ruth and Terry Schilling, triplet children of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Schilling, Wausau, served as flower girls, and ring bearer. The girls wore dresses of white satin with lace ruffles bordering the full skirts. Terry carried the rings on a heart shaped pillow.


Raymond Kiefer, brother-in-law of the groom, and Ralph Andrew, ushered.


Dinner and supper and a reception were held at the home of the bride’s parents. About 450 guests were present during the day. In the evening a dance was held.


After a wedding trip to the west coast, they will reside on the groom’s farm in the Town of Hull.
