If these photos don’t melt your heart then it’s made of stone.
This is the kind of event where my face gets sore from smiling so much!
I met this wonderful couple very briefly as their children situated them for their party to begin. So I didn’t really know much about them.
But what I learned about them through the course of the morning’s event photography brought tears to my eyes.
First of all, you can tell a lot about a couple by the smiles of their friends and family.
I mean, it’s downright contagious!
I feel like I’m missing out on a really good joke or something… but I think the punchline is something like “Vince and Eleanor, we’re just so excited to be here celebrating this big day with you!”
The toasts were a fabulous mix of stories and praise of this wonderful couple.
Tales of a fiery redhead getting herself set up on an awkward first date. A toast from their flower girl and dear friend! The same floral arrangements as they had on their wedding day.
Stories of the romance and laughter of years building a life together.
The tearful moments of gratitude for five wonderful children who are still walking by their side.
(Don’t worry, I know how to count 😉 One son was recovering from knee surgery and couldn’t be with us.)
What a treat to have a glimpse into the past 65 years.
Congratulations to the two lovebirds! It was truly an honor photographing this special day for you!
