(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 274: Grandparents at our Wedding

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 albums:

This is one of those traditional wedding group photographs - the happy bride and groom and their grandparents.

Pictured here are, from the left:

*  Edna Catherine "OoHoo" (McKnew) Schaffner (1884-1974), Linda's maternal grandmother.
*  Linda J. (Leland) Seaver, the bride
*  Randall J. Seaver, the lucky groom
*  Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977), Randy's maternal grandmother
*  Lyle L. Carringer (1891-1976), Randy's maternal grandfather.

We had only four of our eight grandparents living at the time of our wedding on 21 March 1970 in Chula Vista, California.  The fourth is Linda's paternal grandmother, Amelia Anna (Brocke) Leland (1884-1975) who was not in attendance at our wedding.

This picture was taken in the church after the wedding ceremony and before the reception.  Right in the center of the picture is my right hand (holding my pants up?).  Actually, I think it had to go somewhere because Linda's left hand was through my right arm holding her bouquet.
