They finally got the wedding of their dreams after 50 years of marriage! On April 7, 1967 Gwen and David Anderson were married on the front steps of the Ventura County City Hall in Ventura, California. It was a beautiful setting it just didn't have the personal memory that they longed for. No guests, no wedding dress, no flowers, no cake, and no pictures, just an exchange of precious words to promise a lifetime commitment.
You see David went off to war six days later and they were apart many years after that. He came home with war injuries but with children, grandchildren and great grandchildren they've lived a full life together.
What David thought was just a photography session in the park turned out to be a surprise from his Bride. Their vow renewal. Their Pastor performed a beautiful ceremony with his favorite hymns, communion, and a symbol of unity. It made us all tear up a bit.
And then we celebrated with cake!
Just because you never know about April showers we decided to have a little fun, but the sun shined bright on this beautiful couple. They showed so much love for one another. It was so sweet to watch!
At Beachside Memories we want to make your wedding dreams come true. Everyone deserves a special memory of their love affair. We take your personality and budget into account and provide you with a romantic celebration to treasure a lifetime, even after 50 years. It is never too late!
