William and Chanakan Wadsworth became man and wife in Thailand on April 2. William is a native of La Jolla, born in Scripps Memorial Hospital, who attended Bird Rock Elementary, Muirlands Jr. High and La Jolla High, completing his studies at SDSU.
Chanakan (Kran) is a native of Thailand, who grew up in Roi-Et 101. The couple will reside in Thammarat Province, where William will teach English, math, and physical education. Attending the ceremony were the groom’s parents Portia S. and William A. Wadsworth and his sister Lauralyn. The wedding was conducted in the Thai language, so much of it was not understandable, according to Portia, who added “but the beauty and gentleness of Kran's family when they attached strings to our wrists from theirs was very memorable and sacred — perhaps that's where the term ‘tying the knot’ comes from.”
