This picture records the day that my maternal grandparents were joined in marriage. Andrew and Anna Gulyas were united in marriage on September 1, 1935. They met at their place of employment --my grandfather was the assistant pastry chef at a local bakery where my grandmother was also employed.
My paternal grandparents lived on the same street growing up. It was there they met and fell in love. George and Mary Smisko were united in marriage August 15, 1933.
I love everything about these photos. The dresses, the shoes, the hats, the flowers, the bow ties, are all so charming and romantic.
The family tree continued to grow with the marriage of my parents Bill and Joanne Smisko on June 2, 1962.
I feel so blessed to know the history of how my family began and to have these precious pictures forever recording the day.
