These are my grandparents, Glen and Dody. They met and married shortly after he returned from WWII. Their marriage lasted over 60 years before he passed away in the summer of 2011. I just love every single one of the pictures of their wedding, it's just so classic and beautiful.

Dig in, newlyweds. You don't know it yet, but the next 60 years are going to be just as sweet! Thanks for sending in such a great picture.

My grandfather was 17 when he joined the Navy as a nurse and was put on a ship during WWII. I was always told that my grandmother waited for him while he was overseas. They were together until he died in '98, and she followed just a few years later. This is my favorite wedding photo of them. I think my grandmother is just gorgeous.

Good idea on getting married before he sailed off. Walking down the aisle when you haven't got your land legs back would be no fun, after all. Thanks for sharing your grandparent's story!

When my great-grandmother got married, her husband's father had just passed and they wore mourning clothes to the wedding. Per family legend, the bride snagged a bright red feather from someone else's hat and defiantly put it on right before the photo was taken!

Sassy great grandmas are the reason us wiminz vote and run for office in these modern times. Thanks!
