Miss Miller Weds Sunday
Lt. Louis R. Marcotte claimed Miss Jacqueline Miller as his bride on Sunday, the 3 p.m. ceremony taking place at Eighth Street Chapel, Fort Ord. Chaplain Paul LeBlane officiated. Ward D. Miller of Pacific Grove escorted his daughter to the altar which was decorated with white gladioli. Large white satin bows marked the pews. The petite, redhaired bride chose a waltz length dress of embroidered crystalline and nylon tulle in a candlelight shade. Nylon tulle and lace fashioned her elbow lenth veil, and she carried a cascade of white carnations and stephanotis. Matron of honor for her sister was Mrs. Alex N. Jones, and the bridesmaid was Mrs. James S. Thomas. Both wore aqua crystalline fashioned with boat necklines, long, fitted bodices and bouffant skirts. They carried old fashioned bouquets of baby pink roses and white carnations with pink ribbon streamers. Karen Ann Jones, niece of the bride, was flower girl, wearing a pink crystalline dress. Lt. Gary A. O’Leary served as best man. Lt. William E. Meyers, Lt. Robert W. Gillard, Lt. Thoams Stark III and Lt. Harold A. Rhodes ushered guests to their places, and later formed an arch of swords under which the newlyweds passed as they left the chapel. Mrs. Miller chose a pink and white taffeta dress with pink linen bolero for the wedding. Her accessories were navy, and she pinned on white orchids. She and Mr. Miller greeted guests at a reception held at the Fort Ord Officers Club, where the fireplace was banked with pink and white gladioli. The newlyweds toasted each other with champagne, and cut their three tiered cake with his saber. Miss Betty Bedford was in charge of the guest book. The young couple left for a honeymoon trip to New Orleans and Moreauville, La., the bride changing to a winter white wool jersey dress and bolero, aqua velvet hat and brown accessories. On Sunday Lt. Marcotte’s father, Wilfred A. Marcotte, and his sister, Mrs. Nicholas J. Jeansonne, will be hosts at an open house honoring the young couple. They will return to make their home on the Monterey Peninsula while Lt. Marcotte continues to be stationed at Fort Ord. He attended the American University in Washington, D.C., before joining the Army. His bride was graduated from Pacific Grove schools and attended Monterey Peninsula College. She is presently employed at Fort Ord in the Army Emergency Relief office
