Wistful Wednesday : A Wedding

This is a photograph of my parents and their relatives that were part of the wedding party in 1950.
Left to right, Delbert ( Moms Brother), Roy (Dads Cousin) Dad, Mom, Vivian "Skip" ( Moms sister) Anna (Dads Sister). They got married at eight o'clock in the evening in a tiny little church in the country.
**************
My Mother writes: " The night we got married Oct 07, 1950 my Mom and Dad had dinner at their home for us all. My Mother in Law to be said, when Papa and I got married we got married on one bushel of love. You have to keep adding to it everyday because what you take out, you have to put back."
*************

My parents had planned to get married in November, but my Dad was going into the Army and leaving earlier than he thought, so he told my Mom he was leaving on a Saturday and the next Saturday they got married and nine days later he left.

Far Guy and I had breakfast with them this morning...they both said " It was just like this the day we got married, rainy and cold ..59 years ago." :)

  2. That is just so special Connie. They both look so happy (like they just finished a meal - haha). So glad you were able to enjoy breakfast with them. Happy Anniversary to your parents. What a great photo taken in the 50's and that it is still so clear and great memories too.

  12. Your parents are so cute. Mine got married December 3, 1950 at Mom's parents. She wore a brown suit. I'll have to ask her how Dad came to have a suit. I know they didn't have any money.

  18. the bridesmaids have different dresses. I noted that in some of our old photos too. I don't think weddings were so overly planned and executed back in the day. Especially on a weeks notice. ha
