Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. To participate, post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

This week, I am going through some old photos and I found this tiny snapshot – a picture of my mom and dad on their wedding day! We’re currently preparing for their Golden Anniversary party, so it makes sense that they look like kids in this picture, but oh my! They look so young!

    They do look young and they almost look like statues in that picture!

    Oh, yes, it is always surprising to see older people when they were young. Thanks for sharing, and enjoy the Golden Anniversary!

    They must have been married just a year or two before we were. My veil was a tiara and tulle also. Lots of young men in uniform, it was the time of the draft. What a great discovery.

    Priceless. How quickly the time flies (and our kids will be looking at our wedding photos and saying how young we look!!)

    What a great memory. I agree with Melwyk, your mum does look like a music box dancer- lovely.

    Marty never looked so thin in the 17 years I have known him. Your mom is a knock out beauty

    What a sweet photo! It is always a surprise to me when I look back at photos of my parents when they were first married. 🙂 Especially now that I am almost 20 years older than they were at their wedding. Congrats to your parents on so many years of marriage!

    They do look really young, especially your Dad, even though he is wearing a uniform. He looks like a baby in a military uniform! I wish I had pictures like this of my parents when they got married. Come to think of it, I don’t think I ever saw a wedding picture of them. I know they got married after I was born, but I don’t recall ever seeing them in a formal wedding picture. It would have been nice to have such a nice memory to hold on to, especially since they aren’t together anymore. How old were your parents in this picture?
