Larry & Dana – August 19, 1967

Today’s anniversary post is of my parents!  They were married August 19, 1967 at Christ Lutheran Church in Waterford, MI.

I’m embarrassed to say that the only digital copies I have of their wedding photos are some I took on my phone a while ago. Please excuse the graininess and general terrible quality of these until I can do a bit more thorough job with them.

My mom was not a bespectacled bride even though she wears glasses (this must run in the family. I’ve worn glasses since I was nine years old but I got contacts for my wedding day) so I can’t tag for that but my dad was a bespectacled groom! Love those sixties frames, Dad!

Just Married!

I just noticed that there’s an Oakland University sticker in the rear window. Both of my parents (and my own) alma mater. Go Grizzlies…err…Pioneers!

The original location for the reception was just finishing construction but wasn’t quite ready yet. So at the last minute they ended up at a tiny place called the Iraqi Grotto. I have to say – this sounds amazing on wedding invitations.

My mom’s parents Leonard and Marian. Ah, I love this picture! My mom says my grandma looks like Phyllis Diller in it. Hilarious.

Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad! Love you!

    Congratulations to your parents on their 47th (wow!!!) anniversary!

    The Iraqi Grotto sounds so exotic. Did it live up to its name?

    I’m afraid it did not. It was a really tiny place. My aunt and uncle had been thinking of having their reception there but after my parents wedding they decided to relocate!
