One More From the Vaults

Seattle Times, January 31, 1936:

"At Our Lady of the Lake Church yesterday noon Miss Lois Irene Giusti, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond L. Giusti, became the bride of Walter Everett Sundstrom, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Herbert Sundstrom.

The bride's gown was of white satin with lace trim and her fingertip veil fell from a halo of lace.  She carried white orchids...the bridesmaids wore gowns of white net over taffeta and carried pink camellias.

Following the ceremony, a wedding breakfast for members of the family was given at the Washington Athletic Club.  Last evening a reception for friends as well as family was given at the WAC."

Love these two lovebirds!  I wonder if Mom's dress is still around?  I remember seeing it in the 70s (it was TINY, I never could have fit into it).  I seem to recall that the dress was one of the few available in postwar Seattle, and had to be altered to fit little Miss Lois.  Am I making that up?

I'll post Toddie & Baba's wedding pic later.  It's adorable.

Fancy! Cute that that was in the paper. And I am sure that dress was TINY.

The dress is maybe a size 0.5. I tried it on...when I was at my all time skinniest and I could not even get it over my back. It is yards and yards of gorgeous silk. What a couple!
