Anniversary Gold

Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank celebrated 50 years of marriage on Saturday September 12th.  Happy Anniversary.   

Today I went up to their home above the Monongahela River and photographed them with the decorations their daughters had put up on Saturday.  Here is Debbie photographing the happy couple in front of the mantel today.

Alexis and Jarrett Tie the Knot and Jump the Broom

A happy wedding celebration.  Alexis and Jarrett exchanged vows and rings in a beautiful ceremony, witnessed by family and friends. They were declared husband and wife………..

then they jumped the broom  (the bride’s mother had decorated it in the wedding colors)

Alexis and Jarrett granted me permission to post photos from their Saturday March 31st wedding.

Wishing them every happiness!

(You might remember the Christmas party of Pastor Garland (his mother) when I photographed their church dinner. They’re in that picture too!)
