Grace and Roland met one afternoon in the courtyard of their senior living home. Grace noticed Roland’s dog right away and stooped to pet the precious pooch. It was love at first sight…with the doggie and her handsome man. At 89 years old, Roland said he couldn’t wait any longer.
So Roland proposed, and three months later…there we all were. The same courtyard. The same love. The same doggie to tie it all together.
Grace’s children helped her get ready and her great grandsons helped make the ceremony complete by bearing the rings. ‘I didn’t need all this, I didn’t need a fancy wedding,’ Grace said to me in her room while she was getting ready. She was all smiles. ‘I didn’t expect this to happen. But I fell in love. And he wanted to get married. So here we are.’
So Grace’s son walked her down the aisle and after a short and totally sweet ceremony, the 89 and 85 year old couple’s knot was tied. Immediately after the ceremony they sat down to rest then again before, during and after our portrait session. They sang to one another the whole time.
I guess all of life sounds like a song when you’re that in love…
