The Rev. William Schreffler performed the double ring ceremony uniting Miss Darlene Diane Winiarczyk and Bernard John Burzynski of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.) in marriage Saturday afternoon, May 14, 1960 at 2:30 o’clock in the Pentecostal Assembly Church in Eau Claire.

A floor length gown of imported Chantilly lace was worn by the bride as she came before the altar with her father.  It was styled by a fitted bodice with a jeweled Sabrina neckline coming to a V in the back and long sleeves.  The bouffant skirt of Chantilly lace was made at the back with lace roses falling into a chapel train.  Her headpiece was a jeweled pearl crown and she carried a cascade arrangement of red roses and lily of the valley surrounding a white orchid.
