Wedding of Miss Louise Vigiletti and August Corso

On November 1, 1936, Miss Louise Vigiletti and August Corso were united in marriage at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Huron, Ohio. Father Urban Burkhart officiated. An article in the November 8, 1936 issue of the Sandusky Register reported on the occasion. The article described the bridal gown of Louise: The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a white satin gown, princess style, with a long train and a crown-effect veil. Her bouquet was an arrangement of white chrysanthemums.

The newspaper article provided the members of the bridal party.  Miss Margaret Corso, sister of the bridegroom, was the maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Ruth Pole and Ellen Girardi. Anthony Mussel served as best man, and Harry Vigiletti and Joseph Lolla were the ushers. A wedding breakfast was held at the home of the groom’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Corso, of Sandusky, Ohio. Following the wedding a dinner was served at the Hotel Rieger with forty guests attending. A wedding reception was held at the Eagles Hall in the evening. The new Mr. and Mrs. August Corso went on a brief wedding trip, and then returned to their home on Shelby Street in Sandusky. August J. Corso was a longtime employee of New Departure-Hyatt. He died at the age of 81 in 1995. Mrs. Louise Corso passed away in 2010 at the age of 95. Both Mr. and Mrs. August J. Corso were buried at St. Joseph Cemetery in Sandusky, Ohio. Their son, Larry Corso, was a standout football player at Sandusky High School, graduating in 1957.
