An International Affair ~ Grandma and Poppa’s 60th Wedding Anniversary
It’s always special when I get a chance to photograph my own family events. I know how special photographs are in recording a family history, and it’s wonderful to be a part of shaping that legacy.
In July of 2011, my family celebrated the 60th wedding anniversary of Grandma and Poppa (my husband Thomas’ grandparents). The already significant occasion was made even more special because family flew in from all over the world to attend! Guests arrived from Vietnam, Switzerland, British Colombia and the United States to join the celebrations.
The event was a surprise to Grandma and Poppa, who thought they were just going out to a quiet dinner. Little did they know that their whole family was waiting for them at the restaurant!
It was a wonderful party full of love, good food and great company. I feel so very lucky to have become part of this family.

The whole family! There’s a few of us. haha

Have a wonderful day,
