Sharing a "Vintage" Wedding Photo ~

Dear friends, please don't laugh too hard and choke on your coffee... and remember, this was the 70's ... back when styles were a bit unusual, to say the least! LOL :)

There is a thread at The Stamp Shack asking all of us to share one of our wedding photos. Obviously, ours were taken WAY before digital was invented so I found our old wedding album in a storage box layered with dust on the top shelf of our closet. I vacuumed it off and took a digital photo...after I stopped laughing. :)

Do we look YOUNG? Well, we were! I was only 19 and Jim was just 21. We had jobs, but no savings, one car and a whole lot of growing up to do. I'm happy to say he's still my best friend and "Mr Wonderful". We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary this past June.

You'll get a kick out of this...I saved all our wedding receipts and found them in my album. My dress cost more than my ring. It was $110, which was pricey for back then...and the ring was $67.25!!! How funny is that? {You'll be glad to know that I got a REAL diamond for our 30th anniversary.}

This post was totally spontaneous and hopefully you've enjoyed it. Would anyone else like to share your wedding photos with all of us? If you do decide to post them, please leave a comment with a link to your blog so we can see.
Have a great Sunday! I'll be back later to post the other projects from our fun Stampin Up workshop yesterday. Smiles...

Well, I think your photo is fabulous, as is your card & bag! And if someone unsubscribed just because of that, well, I guess I had better keep my comments to myself!!!! Congrats on your 35 years!
