(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 269: The Wedding Cake Picture

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from our wedding album:

This was taken on 21 March 1970 at Chula Vista Presbyterian Church in the reception hall after the wedding of Randall Seaver and Linda Leland in the church sanctuary.  

Linda planned and executed this wedding in five weeks and it went perfectly.  She even let me hold the cake knife for awhile, but kept her hand nearby.  I thought the samurai cut might be impressive, or the Marie Antoinette beheading cut might dazzle the guests, but she said that we had to feed them, not impress or dazzle them.  

I need to find these pictures again and make scans of them with higher resolution ... ah, a future ScanFest task!  I think I know where they are.

Love this Wedding Cake Picture a lot. Even our parents also had such a wedding ceremony and had a huge white cake for their big day. Now their 40th anniversary is also coming soon so we would like to host a grand party for celebrating this day at one of the local San Francisco event venues.
