50 years.

 
A couple weeks ago Trevor's family got together to celebrate his grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary. It was just immediate family, and such a beautiful evening.

I can only imagine the amount of growth a couple goes through when sharing an entire life together.

It must be a very tender moment, to look around and see a group of people... a group of families that you and your loved one created. To see them talking, laughing, sharing with each other in celebration of your life, and your family. To know you started something that will continue on even after you are gone. Family is everything.

Oh and yes... Trevor and I do like to have awkward hugs. This one is a particular favorite, haha. Despite what it looks like, it is actually super comfortable :)

  5. Adorable, then and and now. Your family always seems to do fun parties that are decorated as well as a wedding... I hope my family gets into this line of thinking.

  11. I love seeing grandparent wedding photos!
    Since my dad was the youngest of 6, I was only 9 when mine had their 50th. All I remember is running around in the ward building halls where they had it. :)

  37. Hi Alycia, I'm stopping by from Malo's blog, this is such a beautiful post. And the decorations look lovely! I wish my husband and I have more of our grandparents around but sadly we don't. My nanna celebrated her 90th birthday this year - she has taught me so much about life and love. Congratulations to you Trevor's grandparents!
