Grow old with me, the best is yet to be.
I was so happy to hear that Lorraine said her parents were coming back to Florida for their 65th anniversary. Lorraine hosted a dinner at her home for her parents and all the kids, grandkids, and great-grand kids that could make it, attended.
I had the honor of photographing them all together. I originally met James and Connie in 2017. Let’s get to know this lovely couple a bit and recap what I learned about them when we first met.
James became a Methodist minister 54 years ago. He will be 87 this coming August. Connie raised their 5 children…2 girls and 3 boys. She had her hands full for sure. After moving to Florida with their family, she worked for Publix for 15 years then retired.
Now their children are adults, and they have been so very blessed with 16 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. But, let’s look back to those beautiful photos I took of James and Connie 2 years ago.
So much love! How can you not ooh and awe over these two?
Fast forward to the recent time together:
And let’s not forget all the people who are here because they fell in love.
It truly is a blessing when you are surrounded by your family for something as amazing as a 65th wedding anniversary. To be side by side with each other through life for all those years is something to be so proud of.
James and Connie, keep doing what you are doing. You got it all right. I look forward to seeing you again for your 70th anniversary! Love and hugs.
