I have a TON of pictures (like 145!) to go through and I am far too tired to do that right now. Tonight I just want to post pictures from my parents' wedding on August 30, 1958. It breaks my heart to think that my mother had lost both of her parents at this time in her life. My mom and dad had a simple, yet BEAUTIFUL wedding (as you will see in the photos). I tear up thinking that my mother didn't get to have a reception or a cake or her own dress or most of all her parents there...and then to think there was hardly anything out of limits when it came to the weddings of my sisters and me. Thankfully, my mother had a beautiful wedding cake today...just 50 years later.
Enjoy the photos ~ I think they are just amazing & beautiful in every way just like my parents are to me!
My Uncle Bill, my mother's brother, gave her away. Today my dad tried to give her back! HA!
So simple & elegant...just how a wedding should be!
And they lived happily ever after.
(Well, for the most part!). Party pics to come soon!!!
Here is a video that I made for my parents of their 50 years together. I put my heart and soul into this project (with help from my dear friend Karen, too!) and I am so proud of it! We showed it continuously during the party. It's 23 minutes long, so I doubt anyone will wish to see it...but just in case, here it is (be sure to turn off my blog's music)...
