Wedding Photo Challenge




Rena
challenged writers to post their wedding picture on-line. Brenda posted her photo here. Kelly posted her picture here.

3 kids, 3 dogs, numerous pets and homes later, my husband, Lars, and I have been married for more than 25 years. It's hard to believe that the years have gone so fast.

Do you remember taffeta dresses? These are horrible!!! But at least they make me look thinner ;-) There's always a silver lining.

The wedding party is my sister Brook, my sister Tammy, Linda, Andrea and my niece Shawna. On the men's side is Skip (Dan), my husband's brothers and my nephew Michael.

We were married at Crystal Lake Church, which was also called the Little Church in the Woods. Our marriage has lasted longer than the church. The Little Church in the Woods isn't there any more.

It was a beautiful setting but no one told us there was going to be a parade the day of our wedding, which blocked off all the roads to the church. My aunt and uncle couldn't make it and some of our friends never got to the church. But, luckily, the reception was on-site so by the time the reception was over - so was the parade.

Maybe some people might have gotten upset - I didn't even notice. I was just so happy to finally be Mrs. Kasch.

That's beautiful! And I know what you mean. There was plenty of drama over our wedding, but not for me and Ghost Hunk. We were just so thrilled to be one. It was heaven. Congrats on 25 years! (we're at 16, now.)

Oh! And thanks for the belated birthday wish! :)

AW Kim! what wonderful pictures! You guys make a lovely couple. But 25 years? You guys don't look like you've been married 25 years!! Looking at your beautiful picture, people are going to think you were a child bride!!!

Kim,
I am IN SHOCK that you have been married 25 years! :-) You are a mere pup.... ha! My honey and I celebrate 31 years this month. I know you are in shock now, too.

Loved your pix.

Ahhh, those are sweet memories! I had no idea you'd been married for 25 years! You don't look old enough. Congratulations.

There seems to be a lot of bad eye sight going around on this blog - but I love it ;-)

Thanks Amy.
