Bingham, Rosella H. (3 SEP 1955)


The Rev. Francis McCaffrey read the double ring marriage ceremony at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 3rd, 1955, for Miss Rosella Helen Bingham and William Paul Morois at St. Patrick’s Church, Eau Claire.  The bride is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Mengel, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), and the groom is the son of Joseph Morois of Marinette.


Vases of white pompons decorated the altar, and white satin bows were on the pews for the wedding.


The bride was given in marriage by her brother, Harold Bingham.  She chose a princess style gown of Chantilly lace over satin, with a scalloped neckline, fitted bodice, long sleeves, and floor length skirt.  Her fingertip length veil, which was trimmed with lace, fell from a tiara trimmed with pearls and sequins.  She carried a bouquet of red roses and ivy with satin streamers.


Mrs. Orville Lenser of Pewaukee, served as matron of honor for her sister-in-law.  She wore a yellow floor length dress of lace and net over taffeta, fashioned with a strapless bodice and lace bolero.  She carried orchid Fiji mums and yellow pompons.


Mrs. Harold Bingham, Racine, another sister-in-law, and Mrs. Ervin Sorenson, Milwaukee, sister of the groom, were bridesmaids.  Their gowns were identical to that of the matron of honor, and they carried yellow Fiji mums and orchid pompons.


Joseph Morois, Jr., of Marinette, was best man for his brother.   Groomsmen were Jack Pufrense, Milwaukee, and Kenneth Bingham, Owen, brother of the bride.


Ushers were Phillips Lukowicz of Owen and Donald Sauve, Milwaukee.


Mrs. John Lukowicz of Owen, aunt of the bride, was hostess at the reception which was held at the VFW Club in the afternoon.  A wedding breakfast was given at the Cameo Room.


When the couple left on their wedding trip through northern Wisconsin, Michigan and Canada, the bride was wearing a pecan brown knit suit, with beige and brown accessories and a gold carnation corsage.
