This is my grandmother and grandfathers wedding photo from the 1920's, I swear they didn't always look this grumpy!
Oh man, I was so scared of their grumpiness I almost didn't post this. Just kidding! They look perfectly sunny to me, but maybe that's because I come from a city where it rains 300 days a year. This is as peppy as we get around here.
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!
Dad was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Corps of Engineers. Mom & Dad got married at Ft. Lewis Washington after the war, and his men decorated this earth mover as their "carriage" from the chapel to the reception. This is a colorized black and white, and I especially like how they drew in a rainbow in the background.
