1954 in 2 Minutes and 49 Seconds

My parents just celebrated 58 years of marriage. My brother Glen put together this beautiful video after he found an old 8 mm film in a drawer. This is their wedding day, in Toronto, on May 14th, 1954.  Both sets of grandparents are there, as are some of my aunts and uncles. The house you see is in The Beach area of Toronto. My grandfather built that house in 1929 and when I was little, it still had a cobblestone road out front. My mom and dad were babies when they got married, the same age as my youngest kids! But they're still together, and that's saying something these days. Well done, Glen!  And happy (albeit belated) anniversary Mom and Dad.

Ohhh....that was so lovely. Really something special your family will treasure. I came across your blog from Susan Branch. Have been on your blog before. What was the name of the music played on your parents anniversary video? Have a great day, Julie
