Flag Day 54 Years Ago

54 years ago photographers did not take pictures during a wedding ceremony. We posed as if we were exchanging rings. All of a sudden, Pastor Gross (yes, that was his name!) exclaimed, “I hope the book won’t show in that shot. I had it open to Burial of the Dead.”

  1. Congrats! It is a lovely picture.A handsome couple!
    (I think it was nicer when cameras/tv weren’t allowed in the services and churches. More dignified and kept the atmosphere formal and serious…and somehow warm and comforting – apart from the outside world)


    1. We thought our ceremony was lovely. A college friend played the organ, and our best friends sang. We had been part of the Madrigal group, and several of them stayed after graduation to sing at our wedding.

    1. John shaved the morning of the wedding, but he commented on his stubble, too. My dress was just a formal gown bought for the recital I gave my senior year of high school. (I was 17.) Four years later I made the top to go over the dress, reusing the beading that had been on it.
