Briski, Virginia (08 MAY 1965)

St. Mary’s Catholic Church at Greenwood Saturday, May 8, was the scene of the wedding of Miss Virginia Briski, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Briski, Greenwood, and Larry Meyer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Meyer, Loyal.

The 12 o’clock noon Nuptial Mass was solemnized by the rev. Edward Hartung before an altar decorated with pink and white floral arrangements.  Mr. Briski presented his daughter in marriage.

The bride wore the traditional floor length gown of white satin.  Her full shoulder length veil was attached to a floral head piece.  She carried a bouquet of pink roses and white stephanotis centered with a white orchid.

Preceding the bride to the altar were her attendants Miss Patsy Briski, Greenwood, a sister of the bride and Mrs. Ronald Meyer, Marshfield, sister-in-law of the groom.  Little Mary Lou Meyer, Marshfield, niece of the groom was the flower girl.  She wore a floor length dress of white satin.  Her headpiece was a tiny crown of crystal and pearl.  The bouquet she carried was a miniature replica of the bride’s.  Danny Briski, cousin of the bride, served as ring bearer.

Ushers were Frank Briski, Jr., brother of the bride and Daniel Meyer, brother of the groom. A reception for about 250 people was held at K Corner, Loyal.  The 4 o’clock supper was served in St. Mary’s Parish Hall at Greenwood.

Guests came from Marshfield, Thorp, Neillsville, Milwaukee, Auburndale, Chicago, Kenosha, Withee, and Stevens Point.

The bride, a 1964 graduate of Greenwood High School, is employed at Central State Bank, Marshfield.  The groom is a 1961 graduate of Loyal High School.  The young people will reside at route 1, Loyal, where the groom is engaged in farming.
