(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 277: All Smiles...

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 photograph was taken on 21 March 1970 in Chula Vista (CA) Presbyterian Church at about 3 p.m. in an empty church sanctuary.  Linda and I are kneeling at a prayer altar, and are smiling.  Linda's veil is in front of her face.

Why are we smiling seemingly without a care in the world?  Because we're already married when the picture is taken.  No stress now...just the reception, the honeymoon, and the rest of our lives together lie ahead.

A funny story:  During the marriage ceremony, the minister asked Linda "Do you take Randy as your lawful wedded wife?"  She started laughing, as did the minister.  Apparently, I hadn't heard the question correctly, and I gave her an elbow to settle down and answer.  She still kids me about this "you still don't hear what is said..."  The minister quickly corrected himself and asked both of us the right questions.
