My grandparents wedding vow ceremony was this weekend and all went good! The weather was perfect and my grandparents were on their best behavior. Friends and family gathered here at our home for the ceremony and luncheon. My grandparents are fortunate that they still have a couple friends who were able to attend the festivities. It’s kind of strange, they are in their mid-80’s and most of their siblings and friends have all passed away. They had an opportunity to reminisce with my grandfather’s sister and a handful of friends that they haven’t seen in years.
The ceremony started at 12:30 on Saturday afternoon.
The Reverend was super nice and did a beautiful job with the ceremony. My grandfather must have asked me 50 times that week, “is the Reverend all set for Saturday?” I was thankful when I saw her arrive. Phew!
My grandfather kept looking over at me while I was taking pictures. I know what he was thinking, “there is that Jessie, taking pictures for that blog!” Yes indeed gramp, you are right!
Look at him, starring right at me while he is suppose to be praying. Do you think I am right? 🙂
A short moment of bickering, they can’t go 5 minutes without it, when my grandfather couldn’t figure out which finger to put the ring on. I thought my grandmother was going to bop him over the head with her flowers. hehe
She was doing her best to bite her tongue.
He had to lick his finger to get the ring on…….oh my.
Pretty cute 🙂
For those of you who have been following our blog for a while, you know my grandfather does not dress up. This was a big deal for him to wear a nice “stain free” shirt. My aunt handled getting their attire coordinated and he almost had a heart attack when she told him that his shirt cost $80. He was afraid to wear it. He can’t wait to send pictures of himself dressed up in this shirt to his old coffee buddies in Florida.
My grandparents love their great grandchildren.
and their granddaughter 🙂
My dad patting their heads that they did a good job. ha
The kids did a great job occupying themselves and staying busy.
The girls enjoyed playing waitress :).
We all sang the groom feeds the bride and so on. My grandfather thought we were crazy.
Here they were 64 years ago at age 18.
My grandparents wedding vow ceremony turned out fantastic and I think they were very happy. My grandfather told my grandmother to not get use to this, renewing vow thing……he said he isn’t doing it again in sixty four years. I don’t know about that grandfather of mine :).
What started as a hobby, Jessica’s blog now has millions of people visit yearly and while many of the projects and posts look and sound perfect, life hasn’t always been easy. Read Jessica’s story and how overcoming death, divorce and dementia was one of her biggest life lessons to date.
