Sandra and Dennis celebrated their 25th anniversary recently. They approached me with their idea for a Connection Session in the clothing they wore on their wedding day in 1992. I couldn’t say yes fast enough! Oh and to make it even more special, these sweet smiles belong to none other than my in-laws :)
Of course young love is amazing – the engagements, the weddings, those first few years when you’re building your lives, when everything is possible. But there’s just something about love at 75 – in it’s quiet depths, and the knowledge that everything you built stands strong and proud. They reminisced about their wedding day, laughed a lot (as usual), and shared their thoughts about what keeps them so much in love. I’m so blessed to have married into a family that welcomed me as one of their own from the very beginning, and to get to know such beautiful people. The strength of their marriage is an inspiration, and it was a privilege to share these moments with them.
A note from Sandra:
“Dennis and I had been married for 25 years when our dear, gifted Tracy did a picture shoot to celebrate our anniversary. We had so much fun preparing for it and during the shoot. This is typical for us as we laugh a lot together. We fell in love and married at 50 and for the anniversary photos, we donned those same wedding outfits again. They still fit! We are maybe the most compatible and companionable persons in the world. We like being outdoors, books, music, good conversations, food, wine, and foolish humour. To make relationship mistakes and learn from them for us meant, yes, love is definitely lovelier the second time around.”
