Krultz, Darlene M. #2 (17 JUN 1961)

White gladiolas graced the altar of St. Mary’s Catholic Church at Neillsville on Saturday, June 17, 1961, for the wedding of Miss Darlene Marie Krultz of Neillsville and Donald R. Zukowski of Thorp. The marriage ceremony and 9 o’clock nuptial Mass were presided over by the Rev. Bernard T. Kelly, with the Mass sung by the children’s choir. Matthew Malnar and John Pfeifer, both from the St. Paul Seminary, St. Paul, Minn., served as altar boys.

Parents of the bridal couple are Mr. and Mrs. Mike Krultz, Jr., Neillsville, and Mrs. Estelle Zukowski of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.).

The bride approached the altar on the arm of her father, who gave her in marriage, wearing a floor length gown of Chantilly lace designed with a portrait neckline enriched with seed pearls and sequins and long tapered sleeves accenting the fitted basque. The bouffant skirt was styled with an insert of gossamer sheer tulle with magnificent appliques of lace sparking with sequins. Alternate tiers of lace and tulle fashioned the back. A Swedish crown of pearls and crystals held her silk illusion fingertip veil and she carried an arrangement of red sweetheart roses and gardenias with garlands of stephanotis. Her only accessories were pearls, a gift from the groom.

Maid of honor, Miss Arlene Stimac of Berwyn, Ill., and bridesmaids, Miss Jacqueline Jake of Neillsville and Miss Judy Gulczynski, Greenwood were in the wedding party dressed in street length silk organza gowns of aquamarine color with scoop necklines and cap sleeves accenting the fitted bodices. The bouffant skirts were fashioned with shirred back highlighted by satin roses. Matching crowns with crystal trim held small blush veils and their bouquets were fan shaped arrangements of feathered pink carnations centered with pink sweetheart roses. They all wore crystal necklaces and matching cluster crystal earrings, a gift of the bride.

Attending the groom was Leonard Zukowski of Evanston, Ill., best man for his brother, with groomsmen, Ronald Hribar of Greenwood and Michael Gene Krultz, Neillsville.

Ushers at the church were Robert Krultz, Neillsville and Conrad Mamajek of Pittsburgh, Pa.

The dinner, reception, supper and dance were all held in the American Legion Hall at Neillsville. Pat McIntyre of Neillsville furnished the music for the reception and the Krazy Derbies of Thorp played for the dance.

The mother of the bride wore a light blue sheath in silk organza highlighted with embroidery. A small jacket fashioned with a scoop neckline and short cap sleeves, accented the fitted bodice. Her outfit was accented by matching shoes and white accessories. The mother of the groom wore a light blue lace dress. The scoop neckline and short sleeves highlighted the fitted bodice and slightly flared skirt. Beige accessories complemented her outfit. Each wore a cymbidium orchid.

The bride is a graduate of Neillsville High School and attended Wis. State College at Eau Claire. Her husband is a graduate of Thorp High School and farms in the Thorp area and works for the Clark County Highway Department.

Thorp will be their home when they return from a honeymoon through the Eastern states.
