On August 19th I had the absolute pleasure of photographing one of the most beautiful occasions I have ever been fortunate enough to be present. Together with their family, including 19 grandchildren, Lee and Eileen celebrated their 50 years of marriage! The amazing strength and faith that resides with this family is more than inspiring…it’s humbling. The depth of emotions from decades of experiences together reads clearly on Lee and Eileen faces, and on this day they glowed with pure joy as their grandchildren expressed “Top 10 Reasons our Grandma and Grandpa ROCK!” As I page through their black and white wedding album, it is this moment 50 years later that holds the greatest significance. Best wishes to the entire Ellwood Family for many many more years of happiness and to all the newlyweds beginning a shared life together…this is what it’s all about.
