I thought this idea looked cute:
At our wedding we will be displaying pictures of our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents on their wedding days as a way of celebrating the legacy of loving and steadfast relationships that we are inheriting from them. It has become one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning.
This weekend, my paternal grandparents were in town. After Sunday dinner, my Grandmother Marion passed around pictures from her wedding to my Grandaddy Karl. Then my dad told stories about Great-granddaddy Karl and Great-grandpa Louis and how they used to take him ocean fishing and catch huge barrel-fulls of tuna.
I love hearing stories about my family. It's such a wonderful thing to feel a part of that heritage.
When I get some of the legacy wedding pictures scanned, I'll post some of them here. They are just too gorgeous not to share.
