Friday's Favorite Family Foto

This is a photo of my Dad and Mom on their wedding day. It was a small gathering the Bremerton Naval Base Chapel. As you can see, my dad is in his dress blues. What I found out just recently is that my ever resourceful Grandmother, made my mom's little pink suit. Not only did she make it, she designed it, and to do this, she had to make over my mom's 8th grade graduation dress!!

(August 1, 1958)

Mom is 18 and my Dad is 24 in this picture. It is the only picture I have ever seen of their wedding day.

Favorite photo Friday is hosted by Deborah at Pictures, Pots, Pens.

Kim ~ what a lovely couple! I love this photo. The look on your dad's face says it all - he is thrilled to have this young woman as his bride!

Deborah said...

Your dad is very happy - his dream has come true!

Besides being resourceful, your grandmother must have been a terrific designer to have created this lovely little wedding dress from a graduation gown.

Thank you for sharing this!

Awwww...such a sweet photo! Aren't you lucky to have a photo which captures the love and excitement of that day?

As I look at your family pictures posted on the sidebar, I definitely see the family resemblance to those young faces in that lovely wedding photo!

Wow! Your dad looks very happy and excited to have married your mom! I hope he still looks at her that way!
I wish I had a picture of my parents wedding day. They day they got married his mom went into the hospital for some reason and he wouldn't let my mom mom go to the wedding because his mom couldn't be there. After they were married they went to the hospital to see her and when they went to his brother's house for cake, his brothers kids had gotten into the cake and ate it all! It's ture! That is what I have been told my whole life. My mom shouldn't had married him. They divorced when I was 25.
