Kinas, Virginia (10 AUG 1957)


Mr. Herb Matzinger, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Matzinger, Buffalo City, Wis., claimed Virginia Kinas, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kinas of Thorp, as his bride at a 6 p.m. ceremony officiated by Rev. Father Piekarski at St. Hedwig’s Chapel on Aug. 10, 1957.  Bouquets of gladiolas decorated the altar for the ceremony.


Given in marriage by her father, the bride was attired in a white imported nylon chiffon street length with embroidered pink rosettes over a full satin underskirt.  The off shoulder bodice was trimmed with tiny seed pearls.  Her small jeweled petal crown secured a shoulder length veil of silk illusion, and she carried a bouquet of calla lilies.  She wore a cultured pearl necklace, gift of the groom.


Mrs. Pat Braun, sister of the bride, was matron of honor, and Miss Ann Larsen, friend of the bride, was bridesmaid.  They wore identically fashioned gowns of imported pink chiffon with square necklines and flowering street length skirts.  Their crowns consisted of pink rosebuds and each girl carried a bouquet of pink roses.  Gifts from the bride were their pearl necklaces and earrings.


Serving as best man was Mr. Harry Wright, friend of the groom, and the groomsman was Mr. Dick Matzinger, brother of the groom.


The bride’s niece served as flower girl, using an imported pink nylon chiffon floor length gown styled similar to the bridesmaids, and she also carried a basket of pink rosebuds.  Her crown also consisted of pink rosebuds.


Jerry Teclaw, carrying a pink satin pillow acted as ring bearer, and Mr. Norbert Teclaw and Mrs. Richard Teclaw served as ushers.


The bride’s mother chose a white linen dress sprinkled with shells and set off with white accessories.  She wore a corsage of red roses.


The groom’s mother wore a blue suit and a corsage of yellow roses.


The gowns of the wedding party were made by the bride’s aunt, Helen Koshman of Gary, Ind.


Following the wedding, a reception was held at the Thorp Finance Dining Room.


After a wedding trip to Canada the couple will reside at Thorp, where the groom is employed with the Thorp Finance Corp.
