that the big fella and I said our “I do”s. Huh. That’s a long time! We’ve been a lot of places, done a lot of fun things together.
The 80s were a great decade for big poofy things (love those sleeves!), hair adornments, etc.
That long train on my dress didn’t make it out of the church without a big boot print on the back of it. No one confessed ^^, but I had my suspicions!
[side note – the big fella now has four more stars on his sleeve] [and look at how skinny I was – not only 20 years, but probably 20 pounds ago, too!]
This is our big (16 x 20), formal “Ted Baxter” * wedding portrait. It was taken with a large format camera (I think a Hasselblad) but unfortunately we are not as much in focus as the evergreen needles behind us.
I couldn’t find the original print, so took a photo of the enlargement. For some reason, that photo always reminds me of this one:
Twenty years, big fella! It’s been a fun ride. I’ll keep you on for another 20 …
*Remember he had that HUGE portrait of himself in his apartment?
