Getting engaged is one pretty awesome thing to celebrate … your wedding day, even better. Still in love and holding hands regularly fifty years later – that calls for a serious party! For Wayne and Sandra, it also meant an added surprise from their entire family.
These lovebirds tied the knot after Wayne proposed in a small Mexican restaurant in an almost-just-as-small Alabama town. He didn’t get down on one knee but she said yes anyway, and they began a long love story that is still turning pages today.
The most recent chapter opened up this past Thanksgiving, when the extended family flew in from South Carolina for a surprise reunion and anniversary party for the Mr. and Mrs. at The Ritz Carlton. Handsome, bow-tied boys and adorable little girls, smiling faces, generation-spanning stories and a lot of energy made this a picture-perfect time spent together. With so much love in one room, we were thrilled to be the illustrator of such a sentimental story. Here’s wishing many more chapters for Wayne and Sandra!
