Rosemarie J. Schulte and Walter S. Jeske were married by Father McSherry. It was also the 28th wedding anniversary
of Joseph and Sadie Schulte. Alfred J. Trombly, one of Sadie's brothers, was the official photographer - photos from Rosie's albums
and scrapbooks. The reception was held at the home of Joe and Sadie Schulte.
The color photos shown were taken by Rosie and Wally's daughter, Mariana (Jeske) Kopacz, from Rosie's scrapbooks and mememtos.
Rosemarie's maid of honor was her cousin, Jacquelyn Trombly. Walter's best man was Mike Berkholz, whose family lived nearby
Rosemarie's when they lived in Detroit.
The wedding party also included Marion Schulte, Mary Davis, Phil Bonner, Don Kortes, Ted Banach as ring bearer and Alrene Lyons
as flower girl. Mike and Marion married a couple of years later.
Rosemarie's mother, Sadie, made the bridal gown and bridesmaids dresses. She also made replica copies for a set of dolls she
gave to Rosemarie and Walter. They are shown here on a shawl Rosie and Wally's daughter, Mariana, crocheted decades later
using the treble arches stitch.
In the summer before the wedding Rosemarie had a wedding shower in August and Walter had a bachelor party in September.
In July the wedding party and Rosie's parents went on a picnic and boating trip to the Pontiac Lake Recreation area.
After they were married Rosie and Wally spent a week travelling in Michigan for their honeymoon.
In late summer 1955 they returned to many of the same places with young daughters Mariana and Darleen, while Rosie's parents
looked after their son, Alan. They rode the ferry from lower MI to upper MI as the Mackinac Bridge was not yet built.
In later years they returned many times to favorite Michigan places with their family and neighbors.
