Just passing another anniversary of our wedding, I often think about the big day. Historical buildings, a trolley, flowers keeling over on the eve of the wedding (in a "fridge" that was actually a "freezer"), guests taking someone else's date home for the night...but really, I often think about these people (see photos below).
One of the "blessings" of hosting your wedding at a landmark (Landmark Center, Saint Paul, MN) is that it stays open to the public.
Apparently, some time after the tables were set (complete with scattered disposable cameras), a few tourists wandered in. This lovely family has been saved on my hard drive for all these years and they are the only wedding guests I cannot identify. Scrolling through pictures just last night, I realized that I have a captive audience who could help me identify them.
If you have seen these faces around town, or out of town for that matter...I should properly thank them for playing a role in my wedding; and see how the kids are doing. It's not the material gifts that count at a nuptial event, it's simple showing up and giving your support. (I can tell these people were supportive by the thumbs up in exhibit 4.)
Not only was this a lovely surprise when I developed the film (yes, in those days film was processed manually), they have given me an idea should I ever come across a stray disposable.
