Just Married 50 Years Ago!!!

50 years ago!!!

Mom and Dad!!!

We all survived the big open house for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary!!! It all came together (though I had my doubts during the planning!) and it turned out beautiful. They had an amazing turnout and it was a great way to celebrate 50 years together by seeing so many old friends and family that has meant so much to them through the years. They both looked great and we all had an enjoyable night! Congrats again Mom and Dad!!! You are both amazing! Here are a few thousand shots from the evening:

Thank you all so much for your very sweet comments. I do have great parents and I am so grateful that I was able to do this for them! They have done so much for me through the years that I wish I could in some way pay them back...but they will always be ahead.
