This weekend is pretty special – tomorrow is Max’s birthday and Sunday is my parents’ 40th anniversary.  Since I didn't plan a surprise anniversary party (surprise!), I wanted to make sure Featured Photo Friday was extra awesome this week - yep, you guessed it, you're getting two photos!  

Both photographs are from wedding days of Schellhardt daughters - Helen and Margaret.  Sadly, the father of the brides would not live long enough to see his youngest daughter, the flower girl in the first photo, marry.  But I’m sure he was there. 

This  first photograph is an example of why Schellhardt Generations exists.  See, my mom has only one photograph of just her and her father…and that was taken shortly before his death.  But a few weeks ago, Aunt Helen Knuttel sent me a photograph of her wedding – she and Uncle Bill were behind their wedding cake, flanked by Mr. and Mrs. Knuttel and Nanny and Max.  And leaning against Max, was a flower girl who was clearly exhausted.  It was a photograph that my mom had never seen before.  And that folks, is what this website is all about!

For her birthday, my mom asked for a copy of the photo…with everyone cropped out so she could have one more photo of just her and her dad.  On this weekend, I think there’s no better photo to feature!

By the way, with all the talk of South Philadelphia in yesterday's post, I wanted to let you know that I added some Phun Phillies Photos to the photo album section!  If you have any to contribute - even if it's just you wearing a Phillies shirt - please send them to schellhardtgenerations@gmail.com.  I'm working on blog post now but I tend to suffer post-traumatic stress whenever I think back to those days...

As a child every kid, especially a girl, is fascinated by fairy tales. They just love it when the princess gets the prince at the end of the tale and live happily ever after. This figment of imagination slowly translates into real life when a girl essentially finds her true love and both finally decided to be bonded in an eternal relationship through the holy sanctity of marriage.
