With Rev. B.A. O'Donnell conducting the ceremony, in St. Joseph's Church, Grimsby, Saturday morning, Stephanie Joan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Konopsky, of Grimsby, became the bride of Mr. George Laba, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wasyl Laba, of Grimsby.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a white satin gown with a long veil falling from a pearl headdress. She carried a cascade bouquet of talisman roses and bouvardia.

Miss Mary Reback, of Toronto as maid of honour, wore a dress of white sheer, while the bridesmaids, Miss Mary Moler and Miss Jennie Holbiski, both of Toronto, wore blue and pink sheer. All wore short veils caught from flower headdresses and carried cascade bouquets of Premier roses and adiantiun fern.

Mr. Michael Laba was groomsman, while ushers were Mr. Matthew Laba and Mr. Tom Wisnoski. Mrs. John Vooges played the wedding music, which included Ave Maria, On this Day, O Beautiful Mother, and Panis Angelicus.

After a dinner and reception in St. Mary's hall for 200 guests, the bride and groom left on a wedding trip to Montreal, the bride travelling in a brown gabardine suit with brown hat, mink furs and white accessories, and wearing a corsage of Talisman roses.

Mr. and Mrs. Laba will reside in Ottawa.
