Oriental Touches Add Air to Klempner-Bemis Bride One Exotic Rites Of Pioneer S.B. Clan ": Flashes of Oriental splendor amid time-honored American traditions gave an international air to last Sunday's wedding, at which Miss Helen Bemis of San Bernardino became the bride of John Andrew Klempner of Redondo Beaeh. Vows were sealed in a double-ring service at 4 p.m. in the Sierra Madre Methodist Church, with the Rev. Charles E. Wiggins Jr. officiating. Guests came from Northern California, among them a group from International House at Berkeley,' where the bride resided while attending the University of California, adding names from far-away places to the assemblange. Numerous friends and relatives from San. Bernardino and other Southern California communities also were in the company of 100 witnessing the ceremony. A fan aiTanyement of delphinium, gladioli, carnations and feathery breath of heaven, all in bridal white, adorned the candlelighted altar. Pews along the white-carpeted center aisle were garlanded with miniature ivy, tied into loops of white satin ribbon, the decorative floral effects reflecting the artistic ability of several longtime friends of the bride's family, Mr. and Mrs. Gerald E. Cropsey, Mr. and Mrs. Deuffort W. Wade and Mrs. Ruth Howard, all of San Bernardino. M THAI. MUSIC With Mrs. Catherine Kirk at the organ, Dale Moore sang "The Lord's Prayer" previous to the ceremony, and "0 Perfect Love" during the prayer following the nuptial pledges. The bridal party entered the church to the strains of Can-zona in D, by J. S. Bach. Pur-cell's 'Trumpet Voluntary" was chosen for the recessional. Given in marriage by her father, the bride made a charming picture in her wed-ing gown of unusual design. Created of hand-woven and hand-silvered sari silk, which the bride bought in Deify while sojourning in India with an uncle and aunt a year ago, the dress was made for the bride by Mrs. Thyra Lindberg of San Francisco. Unpressed folds formed a pouf effect at the front, extending to the uneven hemline of the dress, which wraps in sari fashion about the figure. Circles of silver cut from the fragile siJk are appli-qued at the waistline, around sleeves and neckline, and at the ends of the veil, which was worn by the bride in sari-style instead of the conventional bridal veil. She carried a white orchid centered in stephano-tis and showers of ribbons, into which was tucked an heirloom lace handkei-chief, carried by all the brides in her mother's family for four generations. There were three attendants, Miss Janet Mathiesen of Bur-lingame as maid of honor, Miss Elizabeth Feldman o( Van Nuys and Miss Carrie Austin of Amarillo, Tex. They wore identical frocks of turquoise taffeta with matching pillbox hats created by Mrs. Cropsey, and white satin slippers.
