My Parents' Wedding


[San Francisco, 37 years ago]

I get a kick out of these pictures. My Dad had so much hair! My Mom made her own dress. And they had 600 guests. I can't even imagine how crowded that restaurant was.

My Mom still has the outfit in that first picture, and I might wear it to our Chinese banquet. If I can fit into it. My Mom weighed 100 lbs. back and I don't think I'll be losing any weight, but we'll try it on just for kicks in the future.

I'll post pictures if I can squeeze myself into it. Can you imagine--37 years, holy cow.

aw, what cute photos :) that cake is so tall! and i can't believe how many guests they had invited. will you be posting more photos from their wedding?

Mo said...

@honey my heart: I know, that cake is HUGE! Did you see the little swans on it??
I wish I had more pictures from their wedding. Unfortunately these are the only two I had, which I scanned for their 35 wedding anniversary invitation a couple years back. I'm glad I found them in my files today!

So sweet! 600 people!!!

It's just so nice to hear some weddings end in a happy long marriage.

Congrats to them, and they look so happy in these pictures! That is so impressive your mom made her own dress! And 600 people, wow!

Bridechka said...

Wow, 600!!! Amazing dude.

Such awesome photos!

Carly said...

ok. these photos and the story is so cool. you HAVE to let me post it on My Island Wedding!!!!

(Funny you should say that about wanting to fit into your mother's dress..., my mom was like a size 2 in 1966 when she got married..., I wanted to wear her dress recently to a function but didn't even dare try it on!!!)

Let me know what you think about a post of your parents! Would NEVER do it without your permission!

Also funny..., I don't think I even know 600 people...

aww so sweet! I love it! My mom's dress was tiny too and I never could have fit it so don't feel bad!

honey my heart said...

I love this! I always dreamed of wearing my mom's dress as a little girl, but she too weighed 100 pounds. (Also it was pretty cheesy looking). I can't imagine 600 guests, though - tell me you're not having that many! ;)

Mo said...

@Jessamyn: Oh dear, no no no, I won't be having 600! If we had that many there'd barely be enough room for you to take pictures. =)

Those are gorgeous pictures!! My parents had the most simplest of weddings and I love looking at their pictures too!! Too bad my mum's dresses disappeared when we moved here. :(
