J is for Jubilee

Jubilee is defined as a special anniversary of an event, one celebrating twenty-five or fifty years of a reign or activity.

We have some friends who just celebrated their Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary!!!!

Gold is the color usually associated with Golden Wedding Anniversary and there was a lot of gold to go around.

The marriage renewal ceremony was at Pilgram Chapel, a church on the National Register of Historic Places here in Kansas City.

A clarinet player played  as Ruthie and Jim walked down the isle. He only looks like Kenny G.
The lighting in the chapel was limited so the photos are a little grainy from my phone.

 The happy couple.

The reception at a country club in the city.

My hubby and I with Ruthie and Jim.

There was a wonderful dinner and lots of beautiful music. A jubilant jubilee.

So much to be grateful for! My husband and I were married for 36 years when he passed away!It could have been 51 years now if he still was with us.
Thanks for the lovely series of weddingphotos.

They look great for their age. 50 years is quite an accomplishment.

A Jubilee is the perfect sound for a party, especially a 50th wedding anniversary. :-)

Hi Ann, This is a beautiful 50th anniversary jubilee. Elegant and so meaningful. Congrats to the happy couple. We have been married 51 years and we had a similar celebration for our 50th. wonderful reason to celebrate.

I am so late commenting this week. I visited you Blue Mon post too and your wall of photos look awesome. I really like the paint treatment on your wall. Did you do it? Nice look for sure.

Thanks for your visit as always.
