St. James Church was the setting Nov. 2, when Miss Patricia Ann Murphy,
daughter of the Bernard Murphys of 304 Palmer Ave., Highwood, became the
bride of Robert P. Issel, son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Issel of Deerfield. The
Rt. Rev. Msgr. James D. Gleeson officiated at the noon ceremony.
The bride's gown of silk bombazine was fashioned with a portrait neckline
trimmed with Chantilly lace. A deep hem of Chantilly lace trimmed the full
skirt of her gown, which swept into a chapel train. A princess crown of
pearls held her fingertip veil. Her bouquet was a white orchid with a
cascade of carnations.
Miss Rosemary Moran of Highland Park, maid of honor, was gowned in forest
green satin and she carried a colonial bouquet of white roses. The
bridesmaids, similarly attired in forest green satin, included Miss Carol
Baruffi of Highwood; Miss Carol Issel of Chicago, a cousin of the
bridegroom; and Miss Kaye Mullaney of Wheeling. They carried garnet roses
fashioned in colonial bouquets.
David Witten of Lake Bluff served as best man. Ushers included Julius Monge
of Gurnee, cousin of the bride; Kenneth and William Issel, brothers of the
bridegroom; David Simpson of Highland Park and Daniel Cowgill of Deerfield.
Mrs. Murphy selected a gown of ice-blue lace for her daughter's wedding.
Mrs. Issel was attired in pink lace. Both women wore white orchid corsages.
A reception was held in the evening at the Highwood Community Center.
After a wedding trip to Miami, Fla. the couple will reside at 319 Euclid
Ave., Highwood. Mrs. Issel and her husband are graduates of Highland Park
