Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA Dec. 12, 1967
Miss Enger, William Wardle Wed
When William Franz Wardle and Kathleen Ann Enger added their names to the Wardle Family Bible on Saturday afternoon, Dec. 2, the taking of their marriage vows, they were continuing a tradition begun in 1814. The double ring ceremony took place at 3 p.m. in the Post Chapel of the Presidio of Monterey with Chaplain (Major) Richard W. Hartman performing the rites before a group of friends and relatives of both the bride and groom. Billy is the son of Col. And Mrs. Clarence J. Wardle of Pacific Grove and the brother of John Wardle of San Jose and Walter Wardle of Madera. Their father is retired form the Army and is night supervisor of the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Enger of Port Angeles, Wash., who flew down several days before the wedding and stayed until after the last of several receptions. Kathy’s sister, Sandee, came with them and served as her sister’s maid of honor. Jimy, the bride’s six-year-old brother was also present for the occasion. The bride was escorted to the altar by her father and chose for her wedding gown a white floor length pebble crepe with white appliqué daisies, featuring a high bodice. The back of the gown was draped and her elbow length fine lace veil fell form an identical appliqué daisy outlined with seed pearls. She carried a lace-covered Bible with white satin streamers and her bridal bouquet was a cascade of white butterfly roses. The maid of honor and the bridesmaids were all in pale pink floor length gowns with a high bodice. Large bows of pale pink velvet ribbons trimmed the backs of the dresses and tiny pale pink velvet bows were on the cap sleeves. Their headpieces were of pink baby roses and they carried nosegays of white carnations and pink roses. The attendants were Nancy Linton of Oakland, the groom’s cousin, and Katthy Sollazzo of Pacific Grove, and the bridegroom’s niece, Patty Wardle of San Jose was flower girl. Walter Wardle was best man for his brother and the other attendants included the eldest son, John Wardle and ushers Russell Galloway and John McKinstry of Pacific Grove. Mrs. Wardle had decorated the chapel with huge white baskets of white chrysanthemums at either side of the altar steps and tall gold candelabra with white candles across the altar behind the chaplain. White flowers were intertwined with fresh huckleberry leaves along the altar and white satin bows were binned to the pews at the front of the chapel. Mrs. Enger wore turquoise with a matching veil hat and shoes and pinned on a white carnation corsage. Mrs. Wardle was in a green cocktail dress with a matching veil hat and wore a tangerine carnation corsage. The new Mrs. Wardle is a graduate of Peninsula College, Port Angeles, and is now working as a licensed practical nurse. The bridegroom is serving his second year in the United States Coast Guard on the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Winona stationed in Port Angeles and is on leave pending his orders to Vietnam in early January. The wedding cake was made especially for the family by Mrs. A.C. Smith of Salinas, friend of the family. Tessa Wardle, the groom’s cousin from Oakland and formerly of New York was in charge of the guest book at the reception which took place at the Officers Club of the Presidio of Monterey. The bride and groom left immediately after the reception for a wedding trip to Southern California by trailer where Billy was able to do some surfing, a favorite sport. On returning to Pacific Grove they left for Port Angeles for a visit with Billy’s grandparents. Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Wardle Sr. On Saturday evening Dec. 9 a reception was held for them by the bride’s parents in Port Angeles. Out-of-town guests for the wedding and open house receptions held at the Wardles on Saturday evening and Sunday following the wedding included Mssrs. And Mmes. Al Zanetti and Fred Curl, Los Gatos, Ernest Wood, Washington, D.C., and the groom’s relatives, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Stewart, El Cerrito, and Mr. and Mrs. Clovis Ruhl, Sacramento. Other guests included Chaplain and Mrs. Hartmen, Col. And Mrs. Robert Erickson, Mssrs. And Mmes. Ed Thornburg, Dan King III, Lee Roy Johnson, Lt. Col. And Mrs. James Rodriquez, Sheriff and Mrs. Jack Davenport and Misses An Du Chase of Palm Desert and Alice Cerrito and Kathy Donahue.
