December 20, 1969



This is it, a look back 39 years ago today. High school sweethearts tying the knot! It was cold, twenty below zero. The church was full of people. The Bride was nervous, hoping she wouldn't trip or pass out. The Groom was nervous too.

Still time to back out?


Walk slower Dad! This is not a race, they can't start without us!

The Wedding Party

The Girls: Karen (My Aunt), Cathie (Friend), Jan (Far Guys Sister), Hilda (My Cousin).

The Lttle Girls: Jill (My Cousin) and Julie (My Sister)

The Guys: Paul ( Friend), Frank (Friend), Carey (My Brother), Kenny ( My Uncle)

The Little Boys: Karl and Kurt (My Twin Cousins)



Far Guys Grandma H, and My Grandma D in the background. Both wonderful Grandmas who we miss every day.
The reception was held in the church, the cake was made by my Aunt Skip. Don't ya just love those black glasses!



And they lived happily ever after..


Thanks for coming along on a trip down memory lane:)

    Another brother ran from the seating and beat it out. what a memory.

    Hey. Congratulations and many happy returns of this beautiful day!!!

  25. What a lovely wedding and cute couple! Congratulations! thank you for sharing all your pictures....yes...we were all so young back then but we didn't think so! I was amazed how everyone came from so far away in the middle of winter too....you all were loved!
    I was a bridesmaid for a friend from college and I think it was that same year and I took a Greyhound bus to Ashland, Wisconsin. They were married on the 21st and we also wore red velvet and it was REALLY cold up there! I think of them every year but have lost touch with them. I hope they are still married and have had a happy life. I love happy endings!
