Vlosak, Noreen B. (14 OCT 1967)

Miss Noreen Bernadine Vlosak, daughter of Mrs. Irene Kratochvil, Fall Creek, became the bride of Daniel Joe Brown, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Brown of Augusta, on Saturday, Oct. 14th, 1967 at St. John The Apostle Catholic Church in Fall Creek. Rev. Father Walljaspen performed the eleven o'clock high mass. The organist was the bride's aunt, Mrs. Bernice Symbal of Stanley. Gregory Pogodzinski and Duane Symbal, cousins of the bride, were Mass servers.

For her gown the bride chose a floor length gown of rose point lace fashioned with long tapered sleeves and a Sabrina neckline embellished with sequins. Tiers of ruffled lace encircled the bouffant skirt sweeping to a chapel train. Her bouffant veil of sheer illusion was secured to a double crown of pearls. She carried a cascade of white carnations with red sweetheart roses and ivy trailing.

The maid of honor was Miss Mary Lynn Mayenschien, Thorp, a friend of the bride. She wore a fiesta floor length gown of sheer organza fashioned in the cage silhouette, featuring three quarter length sleeves and a scoop neckline. She wore a blush veil of fiesta, secured to a feather pomp om, and she carried a cascade of pink carnations with matching ribbon.

Bridesmaids were: a cousin of the bride, Miss Elaine Potaczek of Medford, Miss Carol Steinke, Fall Creek, a friend of the bride, and Mrs. Darwin Mason of Thorp, a friend of the bride. They wore gowns identical to the maid of honor in Bermuda and carried a cascade of blue carnations with matching ribbons. Their blush veils were Bermuda and secured to a feather pom pom.

Miss Bridget Pogodzinski, cousin of the bride, was the miniature bride. She wore a white lace floor length gown fashioned with short puff sleeves and a bouffant skirt featuring ruffles of lace. A petite pearl crown secured her blush veil. She carried a pigtail bouquet of white carnations, pink sweetheart roses and trailing ribbons with rosebuds.

The groom chose his brother, Bert Brown of Augusta, for his best man. Groomsmen were: a friend of the groom, Patrick Vinopal, Augusta, Darwin Mason, a friend of Thorp, and Vincent Pogodzinski, Thorp, cousin of the bride. Ushers were John Brown, brother of the groom of Augusta, and Julius Potaczek, Medford, uncle of the bride.

A inner reception was held after the ceremony at St. Bridget's Church Hall. An evening wedding dance was held at Memorial Hall, Fall Creek.

The couple will reside in Fall Creek
