In honor of what would have been my parents’ 63rd anniversary, you’re invited to follow along with me as I document the Bride’s Book and photo album that my mother put together between 1949-1950 as she was engaged and married. My sister and I spent hours looking through these books when we were kids and now they are in my house ready to be scanned.
Based on some things I’ve found in the early pages of the book, I think Mom may have thrown herself a get together, perhaps to announce her engagement.
And look who else sent a note of congratulations – my grandmother, Loraine Gunzendorfer Levy. I love that she felt the need to identify that she was Gordon’s mother. Based on the pin hole in the top left hand corner, I wonder if this card might have been attached to flowers she sent.
Oh how I wish Mom hadn’t put her things in the book with scotch tape :-( I guess it gives it character, though.
So sit back and relax as we celebrate my parents!
