Throwback Thursday (010/365)

ADB20070402 (40) copy
TIME:  Nov 7, 1934
PLACE:  Illinois
SUBJECT:  Wedding party of Mayme Kosar, age 33 and Edward Dolansky, age 30

My other set of grandparents married 79 years ago this November.  It was the first marriage for both of them.  My Grandmother was the youngest child and was born in 1901 when her mother and father were 39 and 42 years old respectively.  My mother told me that my Grandmother had promised her parents that she would take care of them and would not marry until after they passed away.   Her mother died in October of 1932 and her father in May of 1934.  Six months later, she and Grandpa tied the knot.

Kosar-Dolansky Nuptials/Witnessed by Many Friends/And Relatives Wednesday
Proprietor of Eddie’s Market Weds Miss/Mayme Kosar At Impressive Ceremony/At the Blessed Sacrament Church.

The wedding of Miss Mayme Kosar, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kosar of 20 North Seventy-eight street, and Edward Dolansky, took place Wednesday morning at the Blessed Sacrament Church.  Rev. Louis F. Ell, pastor, read the nine o’clock nuptial high mass and performed the double ring ceremony in the presence of a large gathering of relatives and friends.

The altars were banked with masses of white chrysanthemums and cybodium fern, providing an appropriate and pretty background for the impressive ceremony.

Miss Kosar chose her niece, Miss Emily Kosar, as her bridesmaid, while Jerry Jakes, an intimate friend of the couple, served as bestman.  Jerry Ulch and Oliver Kosar acted as ushers… (illegible)…little Miss Patricia Kosar, a niece of the bride, was flower girl.

The bride was most lovely in a gown of pearl white satin, the full, gored skirt cut to include a slight train.  Small satin covered buttons marked the center back from the high neckline to the waistline and sleeves shirring added soft fullness above the elbow, extending in tight cuffs to the wrist.  Her veil d’illusion was worn cap style, with small satin ribbon rosettes and orange blossoms at either side, and the extremely long train fell in soft, billowy folds.  She carried a shower bouquet of bridal roses and lilies of the valley.

The bridesmaid appeared in a simple frock of wine colored transparent velvet, a center back opening from the neck to the waistline adding a chic and attractice (sic) touch.  Wine colored slippers and a close fitting turban of silver were pleasing accessories and her arm bouquet was composed of wine colored chrysanthemums.

The little flower girl wore a pert little frock of pastel blue crepe, a pink taffeta sash marking the high waistline.  White slippers and blue hairbow and socks completed her costume and she carried a basket of varicolored fall flowers.

Mr. Dolansky and his attendant were attired in dark blue conventional suits with boutonnieres to match the bouquets of the bride and her maid.

Following the ceremony a wedding breakfast was served at the home of the bridegroom and in the evening a reception was held for three hundred guests, including the members of the Kommunity Stores, a foods retailers’ organization of which he is treasurer.

He is proprietor of Eddie’s Market at 16 North Seventy-eighth street, and a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Dolansky of 22 North Seventy-eighth street.
