Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary!

Well today is the day...fifty years ago at 2 o'clock in the afternoon we were married in Park Rapids Minnesota at St Johns Lutheran Church by the Pastor that made Far Guy promise to go to church every Sunday for the rest of his life during Confirmation.

The flowers have faded.

Wedding Bouquet and a Boutonniere

Our wedding party...December 20 1969.


From Left to right:  Karen (my aunt), Cathie my best friend in High School, Jan (Far Guys sister), Hilda (my cousin), me, Far Guy, Paul (Far Guys Friend), Frank (Far Guys friend, Carey (my brother), Kenny (my uncle)   Down in front we have Jill (my God Daughter and cousin), Julie (my sister) and the twins Karl and Kurt (my cousins).  The little girls were three years old and the little boys four years old.   Everyone in this photo is still alive except for my aunt Karen she died a few years ago.

We have a quiet day planned today with a bit of cooking.  Family will be coming later today and tomorrow.
Thank you for following along and for all your kind comments.

  1. That was some wedding! Just look at all those bridesmaids! Your little attendants are just adorable. What memories you must have. That's why I fought so hard to give Daughter the wedding of her dreams in spite of The Mister's objections. When all was said and done the only problem he had with the whole affair was that we didn't do more. It was the best year of our life. Weddings are magic.
    Congrats!

  5. Happy Anniversary!!! What beautiful pictures! I looked like Hilda in that wedding I stood up for even down to the red dress and I think it was the same year and probably the same day? I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating a wonderful marriage! Your wedding party was huge and so beautiful and the little ones were so cute! You should repeat your vows at 2:00! I'll try and remember to send you good wishes this afternoon at 2:00 p.m.!

  18. Fun to see the wedding photos! Happy 50th to you both! And how nice that you will be able to celebrate with some family too. Our 40th came and went a couple of years ago. Got texts from our girls and that was it much to my disappointment. Our wedding party is scattered very far across the country, but we do keep in touch with everyone.

  27. Congrats 50 years! Cheryl says the Men look "normal" and the Women look "Dated". At first, we thought they were priests.( I think it was the red color dresses and view from behind...) But now we can see their head wear/veils. Very interresting how fashions change. You look so young in the picture! hehe....
