Mouriski, Mary Jane (Marriage - 11 June 1957) 

A color scheme of pink and white was used in the wedding of Miss Mary Jane Mouriski and Larry Wayne Laack, which took place June 11 at Stockton, Calif. The Rev. William Polack, Jr., performed the ceremony at 7 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran church. 

Pink and white carnations were used on the altar of the church and lighted candles centered in clusters of the same flowers outlined the aisle as the bride, escorted by her uncle, advance to the altar. 

The bride wore a gown of white eyelet embroidered organdy featuring a V-neckline, cap sleeves, elbow-length mitts and a full street length skirt. A pearl embroidered tiara held her shoulder length veil of silk illusion. She carried a pink and white colonial bouquet centered with tea roses. 

Miss Sandra Lyles, maid of honor, wore a pink cocktail frock of embroidered cotton and carried a bouquet of pink and white carnations. 

Mr. Laack was attended as best man by Marshall Dragamanovitch of San Andreas. Galen Laack, brother of the groom, was usher. 

Mrs. Jane Mouriski, mother of the bride, wore a gray Italian cotton suit with a lavender orchid corsage. Mrs. Daisy Laack, mother of the groom, pinned a white orchid to her blue linen suit with which she wore white accessories. 

Following the ceremony, about 200 guests attended a reception at the 540 Building. 

When the new Mr. and Mrs. Laack left on a honeymoon trip to Lake Tahoe, Mrs. Laack donned a pink embroidered white sheath with matching duster, a hat of pink and white lace with white accessories. In keeping with the color scheme followed throughout the event, they left in a pink sports car for their honeymoon. 

Mr. Laack has been with the army since April 1 and on June 22 will report to Ft. Lewis, Wash. The bride, who is employed as a bookkeeper at the Hunter Square branch of Bank of America, will join her husband as soon as he becomes permanently stationed. 

Mrs. Laack and daughters Nancy and Betty Lou, attended the wedding.
