Before an ebony black altar decorated with bouquets of white gladiolas and red roses, Miss Irene Burzynski, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Burzynski Sr., of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Mr. William E. Green, son of Mrs. Mae Green of Chicago, in a double ring ceremony performed by the Rev. Father John J. Rockford at St. Mark’s Church at 10:00 o’clock a.m., Sept 25th, 1954.


The bride was given in marriage by her brother Stanley Burzynski of Thorp.


The bride was beautifully attired in a gown of imported Chantilly lace and drifts of filmy nylon tulle, with a scalloped neckline and a long tulle train lined with rich glowing satin.  She wore a beaded rhinestone coronation crown with a fingertipped veil, edged in lace and carried a white prayer book with a dainty bouquet of colored orchids and streamers.  The prayer book was a gift from the groom.
