With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share this sweet photo of my grandparents Otto and Bernice. It was taken on their wedding day June 11, 1924! They were quite an amazing couple, to say the least! They built their own home and had the most beautiful garden! My grandfather had a real sense of humor and would always make us laugh! Sadly, my grandpa passed away when I was a teenager. My grandma was raised on a farm and taught me so many things! She was a talented seamstress and is the one who taught me how to sew! The dress form in my previous post was named after her. Her first name was Viola, but I'm told she never liked that name and always went by her middle name, Bernice. She lived to be almost 100 years old!
This is their actual wedding invitation. My mom said that they were very much in love and had a wonderful marriage. My mom still holds onto some of their love letters and he would always sign his name "Daddy". I think that was an affectionate way of saying, he would always take care of her.
Since I just adore their wedding photo, it inspired me to make this vintage collage.
I made this next collage using some vintage postcards, lace and sheet music! They were both so much fun to make and I just love this vintage look!
