Married for 25 Years!
There was a special Mass today at church, for couples married for 25 and 50 years. I was asked to come and take pictures, both for the couples, and for the website at church. It was a beautiful ceremony, where each of the couples were presented with a certificate and a cross. 25 years is an amazing milestone, particularly these days. Did you know that among younger couples, fewer and fewer are getting married at all? There has been a significant decline. But today was a day of celebration. I was looking everywhere for a moment that showed what the ceremony was about. Each couple had their own pew for family members, with a valentine heart with their name on it. The hard part was waiting for smiles. I came back to this couple twice in order to get this wonderful smile that gave a good sense of what was going on.
