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!

This is my grandparents at their wedding in the early 50s. My grandma was almost 4 months pregnant but still managed to fit into this teensy outfit! The were married until she passed away unexpectedly in 2008. They spend fifty five years together, bickering, laughing and generally being amazing.

Looks like it was more of a tiny squeeze for your petite grandmother to fit in that lovely suit. Beautiful at a turning point in a beautiful relationship!

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.
