60 Years Ago

60 years ago, my grandparents celebrated their marriage. This past weekend, our family joined to celebrate their 60th Wedding Anniversary. We flipped through their wedding photo album, and I took a few snapshots to share with you. Here are a few of my favorites:


I love their cake-topper and teeny tiny champagne glasses.


I can almost hear her friends saying, "Oh, Claire! You're so lucky!"


Making their getaway after the reception -- isn't my grandma's suit lovely?

What a great story, Jen! Thanks for sharing those old-time family pix. I agree with Leslie, just can't imagine what it would feel like looking back over that many decades together...
