Happy 50th Anniversary!

Friday, Josh’s parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary! We hosted a reception for them on Saturday afternoon at their church to celebrate this big milestone.

Instead of a guest book, guests signed this engraved sliver platter with a diamond tip pen so that their signatures were engraved into the platter. It looked so neat at the end of reception with all the signatures on it! I wish I had gotten a picture of it.

Josh’s parents photographer didn’t show-up to their wedding, so they have no pictures from their wedding day. We had to use separate photos of them on the cake table.

Josh and I had to transport this cake (already tiered) in the car 30 miles and set it up at the church! Thank goodness it survived! :) We had this wedding cake made at the same bakery our wedding cakes were from. It is one of our favorites!

Jillian and Shawn- I started babysitting Shawn when he was about 6 months old. He was also the ring bearer in our wedding. Crazy how much he has grown! I was happy to see him and his family this weekend.

I didn’t get any pictures of the guests since I was busy talking, but we had such a fun afternoon with Josh’s family and their friends. I think it was special day for Josh’s parents as well!

Beautiful reception hall!
I noticed they share the same anniversary as mine (10yrs.). Congratulations to them. Everyone looked lovely.

How long were Josh's parents married before they had a baby?

Jennifer said...

They were married 6 years before they had his sister and 20 years before they adopted Josh.
