Moczarny, Marjorie A. (18 JUN 1955)


Miss Marjorie Ann Moczarny, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Moczarny of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Leon Skalecki, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Skalecki of Thorp, at a Nuptial Mass at St. Hedwig’s Church here at ten o’clock on Saturday morning, June 18th, 1955.  The double ring ceremony was performed by the bride’s brother, Father Chester B. Moczarny of Rosholt, Wis., and who recently returned from England, where he served as a Chaplain in the U. S. Army Air Force.  The bride was given in marriage by her father.


The lovely bride was radiant in her beautiful gown of embroidered nylon tulle over taffeta.  The fitted bodice had short sleeves of embroidered tulle and featured a triple scalloped portrait neckline.  Appliqué medallions were sprinkled lavishly over the full nylon tulle over taffeta skirt, chapel length, which was worn over hoops.


Her fingertip veil of hand rolled silk illusion was held by a charming open crown halo cleverly fashioned of lilies of the valley.


Attending the bride were Lorraine Skalecki, the groom’s aunt, as maid of honor, and Joan Nowobielski and Patricia Ciolkosz, bridesmaids.  Junior bridesmaids were Mary Ann Moczarny, sister of the bride, and Dolores Olichwier, cousin of the bride.


Her attendants, two in blush pink and three in azure blue, wore identically styled gowns of crystalette. Wide bands of pleated crystalette outlined the smart new boat neckline, and highlighted the fitted bodices with tiny tulip sleeves.  Perky bustle bows of self material at the waist, topped the chic panel of pleated crystalette that flared smartly down the entire back length of the full ballerina length skirts.


Lovely contrast detailing was noted in the wearing of pink shoes and floral crowns, with the blue gowns and blue shoes and floral crowns with pink gowns.


Claybourne Ebben served as best man, and Herman Skalecki, brother of the groom, and Sylvester Skalecki, cousin of the groom, were attendants.  Florian Szatalowicz and Gene Zoromski served as ushers.


For the occasion the altar was banked with bouquets of deep red, pink and white peonies and the setting was complete with palm trees and a white carpet.


During the ceremony Mrs. Leon Kaczmarek sang "Ave Maria."


The groom is a graduate of the Stanley High School and now manager of the Freeport Silo Co.  The bride graduated from Thorp High School and Gale Institute of Minneapolis and has been employed as dental assistant of Dr. B. R. Slota here.


A wedding breakfast was served to immediate members of the family at St. hedwig’s Parish Hall where the reception was held at 5:00 p.m.


The happy couple will spend their honeymoon in the western states and will then make their home in Thorp.
