Karen & Stephen

I was going through some old photos of my parents last week, and came across this candid (taken by a family member – they only had a professional photographer at the church) from their 1972 wedding that I’d never seen before. Weren’t they adorable? My mom was 18 and my dad was 20 – they’ll celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary this August!

    Aw, they are adorable! I also think if you’d said this was a professional film shot from some hipster couple’s wedding last weekend, I probably would have believed you – amazing how style always comes back around.

      ha! very possibly. however, I think that my dad’s killer black-and-white tux (complete with ruffle shirt!) could *only* be worn ironically today

    First… cutest. parents. ever.

    Second… how sweet is it to hear your mom’s words and sense her talent for writing and see the legacy she left for her children.
