There are not too many couples nowadays who make it to their 50th wedding anniversary. But I am happy to say that my in-laws are one the few who did!
On September 2nd, Dwight & Ruth celebrated their Gold Anniversary! On September 5th, they had their 50th Anniversary celebration, including a 4-tier anniversary cake which I had the honor and privilege to decorate for them.
All of their children and their spouses prepared a full buffet which was enjoyed by all.
We had a great turn out and everyone had a wonderful time!
Here are a few of the pictures that were taken of this very happy occasion:

What a blessing it is to be able to say that you’ve been married to the same person for 50 years and be able to celebrate this very special day. I hope you’ve enjoyed sharing this day with us. Our prayer is that they have many more years together.
