St. Stanislaus Catholic Church, Lublin (Taylor Co., Wis.), was the scene for the marriage ceremony of Miss Theresa Marie Hendzel, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), and Raymond Allen Kliscz, Gilman. Father Casimer Paul performed the 2:00 p.m. double ring ceremony on Saturday, April 15, 1972.

Parents of the couple are: Mr. and Mrs. Walter Hendzel, Thorp, and Mr. and Mrs. Tony Kliscz, Gilman.

The organist for the ceremony was Tina Badzinski, cousin of the groom, and the singers were Virginia Badzinski, cousin of the groom, and Valerie Kwiesewicz, friend of the bride.

The bride, given in marriage by her parents, chose a white floor length empire gown of nylon sheer, with high collar neck and slightly puffed sleeves trimmed with whit lace and velvet ribbon, also nylon lace appliques trimmed sleeves and parts of the A-line skirt. The A-line skirt was trimmed with a ruffle and white lace and velvet ribbon. The veil, a floor length mantilla, embroidered with white lace and velvet ribbon to match the trimming of the gown. She carried a bouquet of pink carnations, with red roses trimming the bouquet, and continuing to make a short tail of flowers.

Miss Pam Filas, niece of the groom, and Miss Laurie Hendzel, sister of the bride, were both junior bridesmaids.

They wore pastel colors of avocado, yellow, orchid and blue chiffon dresses, styled floor length with empire waist with ruffle trimming both bottom of sleeve and gown. The headpieces were floppy lace brim hats to match the pastel color of the gown. Each bridesmaid had her bouquet of white carnations, tinted in the middle to match the color of her gown.

Both mothers were identical pink crepe floor length gowns, with high collard and pink and white lace slightly puffed sleeves.

Wayne Kliscz was his brother's best man, and groomsmen were: Jim Kliscz, cousin of the groom, Edward Hendzel, brother of the bride, Greg Sromek,, brother-in-law of the bride, and Bill Badzinski, cousin of the groom.
