My Parents Wedding

Hi again,
Robin here.

I am still sharing the photos
from my dad's book I have been working on.
After working on these photos
I decided to make a book of just the photos of
mom and dad together.  So these
are the beginning pages of them at their wedding

Unlike weddings today,
there are only a few photos of my 
parents on their wedding day.

They are quite precious photos.

They were married in December 1950


I decided to do all the wedding photo's in Black and white papers
with gold and silver paper for the accents.  I know mom would love
the gold, and dad would love the silver.
So I incorporated both colors, and the pages have 
turned out awesome.
I look at them all the time,
what a treasure trove of photos for our family.

This 8x10 photo is the only large photo
they had made.  I wanted to use product on top of
the photo but not stick anything to the photo.

So I used a sheet protector and cut it apart,
so I have 2 sheets, at 8.5x11 of clear sheets, I then glued the
embellishments on the clear sheet protector.  You 
can do this with a transparency sheet too,
I just didn't have access to any and used 
the sheet protector.

I used:
Glitter gold dot CS
Robin's Nest Wedding Sticker (retired)
Glitter Gold chipboard die cut
White glitter Classic Swirl CS.


Here is an introduction to a new paper.
Wedding Writing.
I framed this photo which I enlarged from a very small
photo, framed it 
on white and then on the Wedding Writing CS.
Silver Glitter Dot CS is background, with Gold 
Glitter Dot Cs as corner frames.
Glitter True Love is Robin's Nest Retired Vellum


Now why there is a photo of the groom by himself
and not the bride, I don't know.
It usually isn't the case, I also enlarged this photo 
from a small photo.
In all the photos of our family, there are lots of photos of mom,
but not so many of dad.  Dad was usually the
person behind the camera.

I used 
Silver stripe CS  (Retired)
Black Marble CS (Retired)
Wedding Writing CS  NEW
Every Girl saying (Retired)
Black 6mm Dew Drops


Some of these photos I didn't even know existed!
I love this one with them kissing!

I used:
Gold Glitter Dot CS
New Wedding Writing CS
Pearl Mini Dew Drops
The Sign at top is from the
back side of New Wedding Writing CS
Wedding Sticker (Retired)


Isn't this so sweet!
They were married by the Justice of the Peace
 with only their friends with them.
Just the 4 of them.

I used:
Glitter White on White Classic Swirl
Pearl Dew Drops
Wedding Sticker (Retired)


This is the original photo of the big one I had 
previously.
This page will go in my Dad's book,
I am doing a book of them together as well.
But I decided, I had to show in his book that
they did get married.

I used:
Glitter Silver Dot CS
Wedding Writing CS New
LOVE Word comes from the
back side of the Wedding Writing CS
Black Marble CS (Retired)
Pearl Mini Dew Drops

Well there it is,
the wedding of my parents 
in 1950.

Not a lot of photos,
but enough none the less to have some
great memories of this special
occasion.

When mom died they were married 62 years!

So Wonderful!

Ciao,

Robin
