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 grandpa was a photographer. Instead of throwing rice, the guests used the flashes from their cameras.

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.

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.

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 <
