Szczesniak, Gertrude (1 JUN 1963)

Orange, aqua and white mums were on the altar of St. Stanislaus Roman Catholic Church, Lublin for the marriage of Miss Gertrude Szczesniak and Klayton Micke on Saturday, June 1st, 1963. Father Edward Cyz performed the marriage ceremony and High Mass at ten a.m. and the organ music was by Theresa Millieren.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore traditional bridal gown of fine hand clipped rosepoint lace over white faille taffeta with a train. The molded bodice of the lovely gown carved to a V at the center of the waistline and was styled with a scalloped Sabrina neckline, embroidered with iridescent sequins and tiny seed pearls. The long lace sleeves tapered to points over the wrists where they were secured. The all lace skirt was shirred at the waist and was styled with the front, a double ruffled, of which the top one had sequin embroidery. The back had one long ruffle and two smaller tiers at the bottom.

The bridal veil of imported English silk illusion in fingertip length was secured to a rhinestone band crown with crystal and pearl spikes and a pearl heart in the center. She carried a bouquet of red and white roses.
