Please can I have the full names of the bride and groom with ages, professions, places of birth/residence?

Same questions for the parents of bride and groom - also were they alive?

Plus any other relevant information - witnesses etc?

Thank you.

Witnesses: Abram Poshalovsky, local Jewish administration worker or perhaps manager, 50 yo and Berek Naiman, local Jewish administration clerk, 26 yo
Wedding took place yesterday at 7 PM

Note: The fact that the same age was given in separate years for the same witness, probably indicates that they meant to say that he was in his 50s and not actually 50 years old.
