Hardwick, Dorothy (10 AUG 1943)


Before the altar of the Soldiers’ Home Chapel Tuesday afternoon, Miss Dorothy Hardwick, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Hardwick of Milwaukee, exchanged her marriage vows with Lt. Ernest Amport of the U.S. Army Air Corps, son of Mr. and Mrs. Hans Amport of Kansasville, Wis.  The young couple said their sacred marriage promise after the Rev. Gustav Stearns, a U.S. Army Chaplain.


The bride was attired in a dress of simple white satin, the skirt falling to a simple train.  The crown of illusion which held the fingertip veil was inserted with orange blossoms.  She carried a bridal bouquet of white roses, baby breath and bouvardia.


As her only attendant, Miss Erma Hardwick wore a rock of pink organza, with lace edging the neckline and skirt.  In her hair she had a cluster of red roses like those combine with baby breath and snapdragons in her arm bouquet.


Best man for his brother was Werner Amport of North 26th St., Milwaukee.


In the foyer of the church the newlyweds greeted their friends immediately after the ceremony.  The family was entertained at a dinner at the home of the bride’s parents.


As the bride’s mother witnessed the nuptials, she wore a navy blue frock.  A deep green was Mrs. Amport’s choice fro the occasion.  Both wore corsages of red roses and baby breath.


The young couple honeymooned in northern Wisconsin for the week.  The bridegroom will return to a replacement center in Washington to receive further instructions.  The bride will continue her position in Milwaukee.  She was formerly in the laboratory of Cudahy Bros. Co. of Cudahy.  Both are graduates of the Humbird (Clark Co., Wis.) High School.  Announcement of their engagement was made last October.
