-Stryk, Patsy (Marriage - 10 SEP 1949)

At four o’clock Saturday afternoon, Sept. 10th, 1949, a pretty wedding was solemnized at the Good Shepherd Church in Chicago, when Patsy Stryk, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Maln Stryk of Lublin, exchanged vows with Edward Pasiecznik, son of Mr. and Mrs. I. Pasiecznik of Chicago.

The bride, who was given away by her father, wore an entrained princess style gown of heavy ivory satin styled with an off the shoulder neckline with an inset yoke of sheer nylon, long sleeves pointed over the wrists and a bustle of satin and imported rose point lace. Her four tier veil of imported French illusion fell from a sweetheart headpiece also of rose point. The rose point lace was over two years old and borrowed from a dear friend. Pearl chokers and earrings completed her ensemble. Her flowers were a cascade bouquet of white torn gladiolas and stephanotis with white satin ribbon.

The bride’s attendants were her sister Mrs. Elvera Sobczyk, as matron of honor and who was just married three weeks previous and Alice Pasiecznik, bridesmaid, sister of the groom. The wore identical gowns of heavy American Beauty satin fashioned with ruffled off the shoulder sleeves, fitted bodices and full skirts hooped at the hips and long matching gloves. They carried cascade arrangements of torn gladiolas and matching headpieces. Rhinestone necklaces and earrings, gifts of the bride, completed their ensembles.

Don Farrell, brother-in-law of the groom, was best man. Both men were in formal attire suitable to the occasion.

During the ceremony “Because” and “Ave Maria” were rendered by Mrs. Don Farrell.

A supper and reception for over 350 people was held at the church hall.

The bride’s mother wore black with matching accessories and the groom’s mother wore a black and white print dress. Both wore orchid corsages.

The newly married couple left on a three week auto trip to California and upon their return will make their home in Chicago.
