We have a large photo album filled with professional photos of my in-laws wedding in 1962, however when my parents married in 1966, there was simply a family member with a point and shoot camera who snapped a few photos to capture the moment. I remember growing up and seeing these old black & white photos in the photo album along with our other family memories. Several years ago, Mama pulled them out and created a scrapbook page by cutting frames in a paper & adhering the photos to the back of the page so the photos showed through. Here's the scan of that page, which along with one other photo scan is what I had to start with to create a layout for my own scrapbook.
While these are not the best photos from a technical point of view, I absolutely love them and how they capture my parent's wedding day. Back in the 1960s, it was rare for photographers to capture photos of the everyday events, so I especially like the photo of Mama curling her hair in preparation.
And while it would be over three years before I came along, I believe this is truly where my life story begins, with the two people God chose to give me life, nurture me, and "train me in the way I should go." (Proverbs 22:6)
