A Golden Anniversary

More often we are celebrating the birth of a marriage rather than the monumental achievement of a 50 year anniversary. So when we had the honor of DJing a 50th wedding celebration this past weekend, we just had to share it with you.

The “couple of honor” were just as in-love, if not more, than the day they were married. I played “their song”, Ronnie Milsap – Lost in the Fifties Tonight (In the Still of the Night), and brought back many old tunes for everyone to enjoy. It was wonderful to see their entire family, children, grandchildren, and friends join them in celebrating the occasion.
I got the opportunity to speak with the joyous couple and congratulate them. They were so sweet and so proud of their family…telling me a little bit about each of their children. I reminisced with them about DJing for my own grandparent’s 50th anniversary several years ago. And, when I mentioned that I was getting married myself this year, they couldn’t have been more excited for me. Their happiness was contagious and I can only strive to have a marriage as successful as theirs. Best wishes to them on another 50 years!
