The Weatherfords were married in 1964, and while a lot of things have changed since then, their love and devotion has not. It was such a privilege to attend this celebration. Although it often seems the world around us no longer values the life-long commitment of two individuals, this was a great reminder of the power and influence of that a strong marriage can have on the world. From their small corner, the Weatherfords have influenced their family and friends in a very positive way, and hearing about their dedication was very inspiring to me!
One thing that was VERY obvious throughout the evening was how valuable photography was to this family. So, of course, we began the evening with a quick session with the whole family. It was a great way to get to know everyone before the party began! Now if this wasn’t awesome, I don’t know what is! Her wedding gown and “going away” dress were both on display for everyone to admire! I think they were even both made by her mother! Keep those dresses, ladies… you never know when you’ll need them!
A beautiful cake and cake table, with their original wedding cake topper! I love sentimental touches. And.. one more sentimental touch! Pimento cheese sandwiches as hors d’oeurves, which were served at the rehearsal dinner! I loved the beautiful table centerpieces. We also recreated their original cake-cutting photo from their reception! There were photos EVERYWHERE! And everyone enjoyed watching the slideshow their children had put together. Family and friends read notes from those who were unable to attend that shared stories, memories, and inspiring words that brought many smiles and tears. One more example of their love for photography – an album of photos from their years together as a gift from their children.
Thank you, Weatherford family, for allowing me to be a part of this amazing celebration! What an honor it was to be there. I wish you the best, and many more years together!
