My Pepere and Memere on their wedding in 1953. I love how smitten my Grandfather looks.
Haha, I love the incredulous look on your grandmother's face! They look like a fun pair!
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."
This is a picture of my grandparents' wedding in 1949. Although they have been divorced for nearly 40 years, they both died in 2011, only a half year apart.
Thank you for sharing this story and great photo with us! At the risk of sounding irreverent, I'm pretty sure I know what your grandfather was thinking when this photo was taken.
My great-grandparents, John and Claire, were married in the early 1940s and stayed together until his death three years ago. Since then, my mom and her cousin both wore Nana's dress in their own weddings and it's as beautiful today as it was then.
