Colorado Golden Anniversary Party | Trinity United Methodist Church in Denver

I
n my 10 years of photographing weddings I've witnessed so many beautiful and heartfelt wedding vows. It is so special that I get to photograph countless couples on one of the happiest days of their lives. I often wonder how they are doing years later. Sometimes I find out that they're expecting children since they come back to me to photograph the young families that they've started. Sometimes I never hear from the couple again. I always hope that they are still living happily ever after together but it's no secret that it's not in the cards for everyone who gets married. And this is why it's such a treat when I meet couples who have been married for as long as Wade and Nancy have. Their daughter, Trudi, hired me to photograph their Golden (50th) wedding anniversary just a couple of days after Christmas at Trinity United Methodist Church which happens to be the oldest church in Denver. The celebration was held on their actual 50th wedding anniversary, December 28th. A big group of their friends and family came from all over to celebrate the huge milestone in their life with them. They married back in 1965 after only 10 days of being engaged and are still going strong all of these years later. It was truly inspiring to see these two together. To me they seemed very much in love and comfortable together. There was a lot of laughter, especially when they got up at the reception and took turns telling their love story to the crowd. You could tell that they enjoyed all of that reminiscing together and Nancy was delighted to finally get the big reception that they never had back in 1965. They even had her wedding dress displayed and it was the most adorable little lace covered short dress that I could definitely still see a bride wearing today! The whole thing was so sweet and I couldn't wait to get home and hug my own husband. The pictures below are just a few of the highlights from the celebration. Enjoy!
