Our Forty-Fifth

Forty-five years ago today, Sue and I got hitched. It was also the Saturday of the May long weekend — Victoria Day. I have finally scrounged and digitized all of the 'pro' shots from that day; most were in b&w. He wasn't the best photog ever, but we have good memories.

A collage/montage of 5 shots.
Sometime during the ceremony.
Sue carried a bouquet wrapped around a bible.
With the parents. It was a windy day. You can see me holding her dress down with my foot.
The wedding party.

Off we go ... wherever life may take us.
Here is a link to my whole Flickr album should you wish to see more photos. They are larger and more or less in the order of the day.

What a hoot when I look at the sad decorations on the car door. I think these strings started out as flowers, but got ripped and torn on the 45 minute drive to the church along a busy highway.
I love the collage, and all the restoration work you did on the coloured photos. They sure faded over the years, but my memories of that day are still bright.
Love and Hugs S

You beat my late wife and I by a couple of months, but we too would be celebrating 45 in August. I noticed the similarities in your wedding and ours. The bridesmaids dresses were of similar style, not color, the men all wore black tuxes, and you and I both had hair. Oops! I didn't mean to mention that!
Congratulations to you both. Many more yet to come.

Congratulations on your anniversary, Sue & John. You have found the secret to long and obviously happy union and may you continue to celebrate for many more years.
How fitting also that you both and Canada share a celebration weekend.
