Liberty, Dorothy (SEP 1956)


With the altar decorated with baskets of red roses, white gladiolas and white mums, the Holy Assumption Church of West Allis was the scene of the wedding of Dorothy Liberty, daughter of Mrs. Lawrence Liberty, and the late Lawrence Liberty, and John Gregory, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gregory of Flushing, New York.


The bride was given in marriage by her brother, Pierre Liberty.  A gown of white nylon tulle and Chantilly lace styled with a peter Pan collar was worn by the bride.  Her waist length veil fell from a matching lace bonnet trimmed with pearls.  Her bouquet consisted of white Fuji Chrysanthemums.


Mrs. Robert Bjornstad was matron of honor for her sister.  She chose a ballerina length gown of rust silk organza fashioned with a bateau neckline and matching bandeau.  She carried a bouquet of gold and rust pompoms.  A pearl necklace and earrings set, a gift of the bride, completed her outfit.


A niece of the bride, Nancy Bjornstad, was the flower girl.  She wore a white nylon net floor length dress with matching headpiece.  Her bouquet was made up of baby mums and a white Fuji chrysanthemum.  Her pearl necklace and bracelet were a gift of the bride.


Acting as best man for his sister and groom was Lawrence Liberty.  Robert Bjornstad, the bride’s brother-in-law, had ushering duties.


The men wore business suits in shades of brown.


A dress of royal blue with white accessories was worn by the bride’s mother.  The groom’s mother wore a navy blue dress with pink accessories.  Both mothers wore pink and white carnation corsages.


After a reception at the Westward Ho the newlyweds left on a trip west where they plan to reside.
