I was struggling with how to share all the photos I took at our nephew Caleb’s and new niece Marie’s wedding this past Saturday. This new couple is so blessed with an amazing legacy of marriage longevity so that is where I decided to start. The fathers, the mothers, the grandparents, and the great grandparents. Over 350 years of marriage was represented! 73 years, 70 years, over 50 years, over 30 years, over 20 years…those are amazing numbers in this day and age.
The father of the groom, my brother Steve, with the groom Caleb. Loved watching their interactions while they waited for the Bride to appear in the distance. (Now I’m struggling with where I should be putting commas! Added pressure with so many English majors in this family!)
My sister-in-law Kelly, the mother of the groom and married to my brother for 32 years.
The mother of the bride, Lizzie. Her husband Todd and she have been married for 25 years.
Marie’s great grandmother and her grandparents. Great grandmother was married for 73 years before her husband died! Each of Marie’s grandparents have been married over 50 years! (53 & 55 I believe)
Caleb’s grandparents, my SIL’s parents, married for 56 years.
Caleb’s grandparents (my parents) watching the wedding via facetime at their apartment. How cute are they all dressed up for the wedding from afar!? They have been married for 70 years!
Father walking his first daughter to get married down the aisle. They were both fighting back the tears. Marie has two younger sisters.
Both fathers officiated the wedding side by side.
It was great, Todd prompted Caleb for his vows and Steve prompted Marie for her vows.
And then all the grandparents came up to pray a blessing over this young couple.
What a beautiful moment representing 364 years of marriage!
I’ll be sharing more posts soon because there’s the bride, the groom, the flower girls, the extended families, the venue, the tables, the fabulous way they had us find our assigned tables, etc. etc…
I’m feeling more alive today. Yesterday was a do nothing recuperation day for me. How’s your August going?
