Badzinski, Rosemary (17 AUG 1963)

Miss Rosemary Badzinski, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Badzinski, became the bride of Gerald Szymanski, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Szymanski on Saturday, Aug. 17, 1963 at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church. Rev. Francis Brockman performed the ten a.m. double ring ceremony. The Nuptial High Mass was sung by St. Bernard’s Church Choir.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a floor length gown of white silk organza over taffeta. The bodice was fashioned with scoop neck and long traditional tapered sleeves. The bouffant skirt was highlighted in back by a three-gore horizontally gathered bustle. A Swedish high crown of pearl drops held the bouffant bridal illusion veil, and she carried a cascade of red roses.

Miss Louella Badzinski was her sister’s maid of honor, and Miss Bonnie Lato, niece of the groom, and Miss Mary Badzinski, sister of the bride, were bridesmaids, wearing identical street length dresses with full gathered skirts and mint green nylon organza over taffeta. The bodice was made of white lace over mint green taffeta and fashioned with a scoop neck and elbow sleeves. A bow of white lace over mint green taffeta held the blusher veils and they carried a cascade of pink sweetheart roses.

James Lukas, a friend of the groom, was best man, and groomsmen were Robert Badzinski, brother of the bride, and Merlin Nevala, friend of the groom. Ushers were Louis Badzinski Jr. and Leonard Szymanski, brothers of the bride and groom.

A dinner for fifty guests was held at twelve noon at the American Legion Hall, and a reception for 175 guests was also held there.

The bride’s mother wore a sheath dress of brown lace over beige with beige accessories. The groom’s mother wore a sheath dress of beige textured knit, with pink accessories and both wore a corsage of pink carnations.

The bride, a graduate of Stout State College, is a home economics instructor at Central High School, Strum. The groom, a graduate of River Falls State College, is employed at Universal CIT Credit Corp., Eau Claire.

After a wedding trip to Montana, they will make their home at 435 Woodland Drive.
