Happy Anniversay ~ It's our Year of the Pearl

Thirty years ago...our Wedding Day...
It was a beautiful day, with a light shower in the late afternoon.
They say it's good luck if it "rains on the bride".
Our parents...
They look young don't they?
It was Aberdeen's Centennial Year, so my Father-in-Law was wearing a beard.
Since my hubby and his friends had a band, our wedding music was fabulous.
Some contemporary music before the ceremony began...
But, during the ceremony, it was very traditional.
In fact, we used one of the songs from my parent's wedding.
"O Perfect Love"
This was before folks started recording their weddings, so we have no audio recording...so sad...
...just sweet memories.
Our pretty little church.
Have I mentioned that I sewed all the dresses?
Yes, I know...call me crazy.
Mine; 3 bridesmaids; 2 candle lighters; and my mother's... 
that's 7 all together.
Our cake was baked and decorated by a family friend.
She made the most delicious cake, ever!
Our reception was held at the church, in the fellowship hall...
We were surrounded by very our most precious friends and family.
But we all know...it's not about the wedding, it's all about the marriage.

An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today,
the memories of yesterday, 
and the hopes of tomorrow.

Happy 30th Anniversary, Honey.
Take care,
~Natalie

Happy Anniversary! Your wedding hat brought a smile to my face. I think I owned one in every color by the time we reached the late 70s. they were definitely popular headwear for the wedding parties back then!
