    I don't think that's creepy at all! Very sweet :)

    We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

        Great photo, I agree with the others, old photos are awesome. Your grandpa is so cute with his comment... and the idea about putting all the grandparents photos is great, I plan on doing a photo wall at home with family wedding photos...

          Thanks Jamie!

          That pic looks a lot like my grandparent's. They were married on base in Texas. I am hoping to find the handkerchief she carried and use it as my something old. I think it is somewhere in a box. I also still have the bible the chaplain gave them on their wedding day.

          I really need to find the pictures now! There is a really cute one of grandparents and the couple that stood up for them. The men are both in uniform wearing the ladies' hats!

              Love your grandparents photo!! My grandparents had a similiar pic as well. Their 50th wedding aniversary was about 2 1/2 years ago and my grandma hd me try on her wedding suit. Here is a pic of me wearing it. (Don't mind the goofy smile!) The color was robin's egg blue. It fit pretty well only the sleeves were a little short. Pretty different than what I'm going to be wearing!
