Wistful Wednesday: July 01, 1978

My brother, Carey got married! The wedding took place In a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. We all drove from Minnesota to Missouri. It was hot, we all stayed in a motel with a pool, it was really, really hot, I don’t think the church was air conditioned. The girls were just little, Trica was the Flower Girl and my Mom sewed her dress and pinafore. My baby brother, Jody is on the far right..he was a groomsman, he was still in high school. This was thirty one years ago. Happy Anniversary to my brother and his lovely bride who live far, far away in Oregon! The lovely bride wore her mothers wedding gown, it was a beautiful wedding, despite the hot weather.

Jen was not yet three years old, she wore a dress and a pinafore too..her dress had little pink flowers instead of green flowers like the real flowergirl who was six years old. This was during one of my contact lens phases, I struggled with them for several years, until I eventually gave up on wearing them completely and went back to glasses. It was the only wedding that Far Guy and I were ever in other than our own:)

    I love the family picture and the green gown you wore….almost the same color as my bridesmaids wore in 1960. Such fun to recall the family celebrations of weddings.

    Ilove the dresses–the whole scene is like a flashback, as I graduated in 1978, and many of my friends started to get married around then…lots of similar styles.
