Show Us Your Life Friday Wedding Party Three Generations

I'm joining Kelly's Korner this week with her
Show Us Your Life

Our daughter, Jennifer, and her father. The hoop in her dress was so big she had a hard time getting around the alter. She kept knocking into all the flowers

Jennifer's Mini Bridesmaid, her niece Ella, and her mother & Jen's Matron of Honor, Natalie. Ella didn't make it through the ceremony, she had to stay with her other grandma :( The flowers are silk and designed for us by a wonderful lady on EBAY!

Jennifer and her two brothers and Groomsmen, Charlie (Wyatt's dad) and Thomas (Ella & Samantha's dad).

Jennifer & Shawn April 9, 2005

and yes, his "best man" was a woman.

Her bridesmaids were Shawn's sister and a school friend.

Everyone wore black and white and the alter was COVERED

in white Easter flowers since she got married a week after Easter.

"US" August 2, 1978
Sad to say that it has been waaay too many years since

we've even seen our Maid of Honor and Best Man
Since it was just me and Darlene I just told her to pick a dress

and went with it. I think it's interesting though

that my mom also had yellow for her Maid of Honor. Tom's Best Man was Doug, a childhood friend.

They grew apart as teen agers but he always knew

that's who he wanted to stand up with him.

My Parents October 10, 1953

My mother kept her flowers along with her dress, veil and cake top.

In later years she let the granddaughters play with them.

My mother's favorite color was always yellow.

My dad would send her yellow roses for their anniversary each year,

one for each year of their marriage.

My mother died 7 months after their 50th anniversary at 70 and

my father joined her two years later in 2007.
They are all gone now but the flower girl who is my Godmother.

Their memory lives on in our hearts.

Welcome to our memories.
