Couple recreates wedding album 50 years after getting married. The couple made use of the same dress and church they used for the initial album. Carolyn and Kelly Gay tied the knot in March 1971. The couple went back to the church they tied the knot 50 years ago to recreate their pictures.
The photos they took looked like the initial one because the church still had the same candelabras, cross, and alter present in the church 50 years back.
Carolyn, who is now in her seventies and a grandmother of four grew her hair for the shoot for three years. She also ensured that she was able to wear exactly the same dress she wore 50 years ago.
It took about an hour to an hour-and-a-half to take the new pictures and it was just a fun time. They’ve had the church painted a couple of times since, but not long ago they scraped it back and have taken it back to the original colour. It’s amazing.Carolyn
As this couple recreates their wedding album to celebrate their 50 years anniversary they also brought out receipts from their original wedding day. Carloyn’s dress went for $46.35 with $8.24 for alterations. Catering cost $63.82.
When Carolyn was asked the reason behind the recreation of their wedding, she replied that she has a wedding picture she loved and she needed to recreate that picture. According to Carolyn, the photographer spent two weeks to producing the overlaid image, but this time the photographer didn’t waste any time recreating it.
