A Spring Wedding, 1960

My aunt and uncle got married on the sun-filled day of May 7, 1960. The 10am ceremony was held at the Saint Boniface German parish, corner Hôtel de Ville and Pine Avenue, while the reception was held at The Bucharest on Saint Lawrence Boulevard.

"How do I look?"...


The proud father of the bride.

My grandparents' duplex was located on Lumbsden Street (Meunier, today).


The Saint Boniface parish still exists today, and the interior has not changed.


I just love the beautiful wedding cake...

I've actually seen the dress, Aunt Annie still has it. It does show its age, but it is still a sight to behold...
