Burgess, Paulette A. (29 JUL 1966)

Miss Paulette A. Burgess, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Burgess, Fall Creek, Wis., was united in marriage to Ronald Frank Winiarczyk, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fran Winiarczyk, on July 29, 1966 at Pleasant Valley Pentecostal Church, Stanley. Rev. Fred Shilts performed the eight p.m. double ring ceremony. June Snuth, Stanley, played the piano, while Elaine Retter, Staley, sang "The Wedding Prayer."

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a street length gown of silk organza fashioned with Renaissance sleeves. The Empire waist was accented by Venice lace. She carried a white Holy Bible with 2 white orchids, stephanotis and ivy. A double crown highlighted by tiny pearls secured her sheer illusion veil.

Mrs. Bernard Burzynski, sister of the groom, was matron of honor, wearing a pink and white dotted Swiss street length dress featuring an Empire waist highlighted by a velvet bow. Miss Cheryl Winiarczyk, also a sister of the groom, was bridesmaid, wearing a pink Chantilly lace over taffeta street length dress fashioned with long tapered sleeves. They both carried identical colonial bouquets of pink sweetheart roses and white carnations.

Eugene Raciborski, brother-in-law of the groom, was best man, and Steve Burgess, the bride's brother, was best man.

A dinner for 30 guests was held at the Thorpedo Restaurant, Thorp, as Mrs. Michael Senn, sister of the groom, cut and served a beautiful wedding cake.

The couple will make their home at Seattle, Wash., where the groom is employed by Boeing Aircraft.
