"Honestly, Mother, I want this photo because of how nice you look." "Bullsh*t, you want it because of that little girl."
My Mums schoolfriend married her French Canadian in a very Make do and mend WWII ceremony you can tell its a wedding because someone gave Doris a silver paper horseshoe for luck,they emmigrated to Montreal and had a very happy family.
What a great photo! I was unfamiliar with this tradition, but as submitter Diddleymaz pointed out, it was a Canadian custom for wartime brides to carry silver horseshoes made of paper. You can read more about Canadian War Brides at the <
Today is my parent's Silver Wedding Anniversary. This picture was taken after they got married at New York City Hall. 25 years of marriage is an extraordinary achievement especially for todays standards. And after raising tripletts, plus two other children, our family is anything but ordinary.
Awesome. I love that your mom wore black to her wedding! I also am genuinely concerned for the person on the right who appears to be passed out. I hope he or she lived through the party to see these last 25 years too.
Leislmoon says: "This is a picture of my Great grandmother on her wedding day. She is still alive, and even though her husband is now dead, she still feels a great fondness for him, and looks back upon this picture as the best day of her life."
DrpepperPhD says: "My grandparents got married in the '40s. My grandfather was an engineer and worked for NASA, and he was a real do-it-yourselfer. He built a house for his wife and children from the ground up. My grandmother passed away from cancer about 8 years ago, and my grandfather passed on this year. To me, they've been the perfect example of a beautiful, happy marriage."
