Last month, my husband’s Grandmother (Carolyn) married her boyfriend Jim. They met a few years back at The Greens, a senior living community where they both reside. Earlier this year, Jim and Carolyn decided to make their relationship a permanent one. They set a wedding date of September 16, 2018. The couple enlisted the help of their neighbors to put together The Greens first-ever wedding celebration. The ceremony was held in the parlor of their senior living community and the bridal party were the couple’s children and grandchildren. All 150 guests were invited to stay for cake and punch after the ceremony. Needless to say, this was quite a special day. Take a look!

The good luck coin
At Grandma’s first wedding she had a picture of her father placing a coin in her shoe for good luck. She wanted to recreate that image this time using her daughter, Anne.
Signing their marriage license
At Grandma’s first wedding she carried this bible down the aisle. It was popular for brides to do this back then. This time she carried the bible on her walker.

It was important to Grandma to have Don’s (her first husband) siblings at her wedding. They were and continue to be a large part of her life. Above are her sister-in-laws, Karen & Marge. Below are Don’s brothers, Earl & Bob.
