Last evening we attended the wedding of my cousin. He has been a widower a number of years and found himself a gal who has been a widow a long time. They are both 70 something. They enjoy each others company and make each other happy.
The minister said that they are the most “in love” couple he has ever counseled before marriage.
I was the official photographer….what are cousins for anyways! The grooms brother was the best man and the grooms aunt was the matron of honor.
It was a lovely ceremony with a wedding supper that followed the ceremony. Sandwiches, chips, pickles, pasta salads and jello salads….oh and punch, coffee and wedding cake.
I may share a photo of the happy couple someday…but for now the groom and bride have not seen the photos…and they should see them first.
The church was packed, there was standing room only for the ceremony. This couple has much support from family and the community. (They didn’t send out any invitations. Invitation was by word of mouth only.)
