In these days of inflation one of the things that can set a
family back financially is a wedding. Most girls like to
have a church wedding with attendants, flowers, a
reception with the traditional wedding cake, a
photographer, a honeymoon and some place to live af
terward. Quite a few girls and their mothers have
resorted to making the bride’s and the attendants’ gowns.
To be sure this does save a lot of money.
One bride, Mrs. Thomas M. Enck, nee Miss Karen L.
Horn, Manheim R 4, staged a do-it-yourself wedding last
Saturday that could be the envy of many brides and their
parents for this wedding season. She was fortunate indeed
to marry a mason who, with the help of friends, relatives
and neighbors, built their dream house which was ready
to move into following their honeymoon. The
bridegroom’s sister, Mrs. Julie Kreiner, Elizabethtown
Rl, baked the four-tier wedding cake and Mrs. Eugene
(Doris) Wenger, a friend, made all of the bridal gowns.
Glenn Eshleman, Manheim, was the photographer.
The marriage of Miss Karen L. Horn to Thomas M.
Enck took place May 17,2 p.m. at Ruhl’s United Methodist
Church, Manheim R 4, with the Reverend Harvey W.
Ebright officiating.
The bride is the daughter of Robert S. Horn, Picture
Rocks, Pennsylvania and Mrs. James A. Sherer,
Manheim, R 2. She was graduated from Manheim Central
High School and has been employed the past two and a
half years as a computer copy setter and office worker for
Lancaster Farming and Lititz Record-Express

The bridegroom is the son of Mr. snd Mn. Martin H.
Enck, Manheim R 4. He was graduated from Manheim
Central High School and is employed by James A. Tier
ney, mason contractor, Mount Joy, Pa.
Mrs. Julie E. Kreiner, sister of the bridegroom,
Elizabethtown Rl, was matron of honor. Bridesmaids
were Miss Kim Horn, sister of the bride, and Mrs. Beckee
Faus, Manheim R 2.
Serving as best man was Gary Kreiner, brother-in-law
of the bridegroom, Elizabethtown Rl and ushers were
John Faus and Wesley Kulp, both of Manheim R 2.
Following the ceremony a reception was served in the
church fellowship hall by the United Methodist Women for
approximately 120 guests. The bridegroom’s parents
hosted a prenuptial dinner May 16, 8 p.m. at the Evans
Restaurant, Manheim, for 25 guests. It was preceded by
the wedding rehearsal.
Probably the most unusual undertaking was Tom’s
building their beautiful brick split-foyer home on
Wisegarver Road, Just off of Elizabethtown Road in
Rapho Township.
The house contains a living room, dining room, kitchen
and three bedrooms on the first floor. On the basement
level there is a family room with a fireplace, laundry
room and a two-car garage. It was built entirely by
volunteer labor by Tom and his and Karen’s friends,
family and neighbors. The work was started last Sep
tember and was done mostly on Saturdays and some in the
evenings. Karen and Mrs. Martin Enck prepared man
sized Saturday dinners for the hungry workmen, as many
as 12 or 13 sometimes. An uncle who is an electrician
supervised all of the electrical wiring. The only job
remaining to be done is the grading and seeding of the
lawn and the landscaping.
Mrs. Julie Kreiner’s chief hobby being to bake and
decorate wedding, birthday and other special occasion
cakes such as anniversaries, baked the wedding cake
which was decorated with small yellow flowers. She is
self-taught but having been in the business of baking and
decorating cakes to sell for six years, has become an
expert. She bakes 10 to 15 wedding cakes a year. She
delivers these beautiful cakes for the receptions. Since her
marriage she has found that decorated cakes make nice
birthday gifts for members of the family. She makes
mostly white butter cakes but also makes yellow, marble,
spice and devils food ones. Her cakes are all made from
scratch. Karen and Tom’s cake was a white butter cake. It

had 16,12,9 and 6 inch layers which took 8 cake recipes
and 7 pounds of 10X sugar for the icing. She makes 50 or 60
decorated cakes a year. She cuts the cake in various
shapes such as a pig, a telephone, a rabbit, a guitar or
Winnie-the-Pooh and draws other designs with icing. Julie
also gives demonstrations on cake decorating for different
church groups and programs, Farm Women, civic groups
and nurses’ alumni meetings.
Julie was graduated from Manheim Central High
School and as a girl loved to go to her grandfather’s farm
where she went with him to bring in the cows and gather
eggs. She has a garden which she tends to and freezes all
kinds of vegetables and red raspberries which they grow.
They have started a patch of strawberries, 2 peach and 2
apple trees and want to plant cherry trees next year. She
cans tomatoes and fruits and makes jelly. She was in 4-H
sewing six years. She makes most of her own clothes and
slacks and dresses for her two daughters. This past winter
she started making outfits for her husband by making a
sport coat and a pair of slacks. She is planning now to
make a winter coat for her daughter.
Her husband, Gary, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Dale
Kreiner and was brought up on their farm where they had
