Happy Anniversary Day

Here we are getting married 30 years ago today!! Below are several pictures of the event. Thanks for letting us share with you. Paul likes to say it feels like just 10 minutes (pause) under water. Humor is a lot of what attracted me to Paul, and has kept us us together all these years. Love to all and feel free to share any of your memories of the event .

The wedding party: Nephew Eric Lochridge with mom Jan Lochridge-Long (both in Rapid City, SD), and John Trommater on the end (Vorhees, NJ).
I love this pic: that's my Grandma Lochridge standing next to me and my Grandma Eskelson with Paul. They were wonderful women.
Bride with 5 brothers: John (Spokane, Wash), Jim (Missoula, Mont), Frank (we lost him 6 years ago to cancer), Andy (Philipsburg, Mont.) and Charlie (Laughlin, Nev.)
Bride's parents Frank and Shirley Lochridge (Lakeside, Mont.) and Lew Stickney (we lost her 3 years ago) with the newly weds. I love how we were gazing into each other's eyes. Awww.
Sweet Grandma Eskelson and Uncle John Lochridge (Colorado Springs) pitch in the night before chopping veggies.
Little brother Jim helping with food prep.

Niece Kara Lochridge (Boston, married last month to Amos Blanton) sneaking a taste of the wedding cake. Brother John eating the feast he helped prepare.

Here are the flowers and ferns picked and arranged by my Aunt Mary Lochridge (Colorado Springs) and Paul's mom Lew. They were perfect and such a nice personal touch!!

Judge: Why are you wearing sunglasses in all the pictures at your wedding? Just wondered... BTW, we are still at home because DH is still sick.

Your wedding was so wonderful in so many ways. The beautiful setting (couldn't help the weather!), the warmth of family and friends, the natural simplicity of such a special event.....just the way you wanted it. It was perfect!! And these pictures are so heart-warming. All the memories of those who loved you then and still love you today. Congratulations.....keep it up!!!
