Posts Tagged ‘June weddings’

June is traditionally noted as the month for weddings, although Robin and I were married in August on the same date as my parents’ 23rd anniversary, and our second son, Marty, and his wife, Anna, were also married in August. Today, I’m thinking about June weddings, though.

Our daughter, Sharon, and her husband, Mike, are heading to Mississippi this morning to attend the wedding of Mike’s aunt. She’s in her early 70’s now and has been single for a while, so this is exciting. : ) Next Saturday, Robin and I will be traveling back to Mississippi with Sharon and Mike for another wedding—our great niece, Jessica Davidson, a recent college graduate, will marry Luke Dowdy in Oxford. Jessica is the oldest granddaughter of Robin’s youngest sister, Carolyn, and this will be a happy time for all of us.

Here at The Fountains, our activities director has planned a “wedding party” for next Thursday afternoon. Part of the festivities is a guessing game where copies of bridal portraits and wedding photos of many of the residents are posted now, and we must identify who is in each photo. Most of the pictures were taken back in the 40’s and 50’s, and it’s fun to see our new friends posing many years ago in their beautiful wedding gowns and suits.

Robin and I are planning another wedding party this summer too. We will celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary in The Fountains dining room on Sunday afternoon, August 5. We’re inviting all the Fountains residents as well as our extended family and friends to join us. I still have my wedding gown, a simple homemade dress with a scalloped neckline, short sleeves, and a three-quarter-length A-line skirt made from a lacy fabric with a satin under slip. I’m hoping one of our granddaughters will be able to wear it to the party. If so, we can take even more pretty photos. : )
