Do you have marriage records for your grandparents or great-grandparents? Write a post about where they were married and when. Any family stories about the wedding day? Post a photo too if you have one.
I actually have the marriage certificate of many of my ancestors. But, I want to focus on my paternal grandparents who were Charles Clair Ausmus and Joan Etta Graham. They were married in Yuma, Arizona on 4 September 1942. At first, I wondered why they were married in Yuma, Arizona when they lived in Los Angeles, California, but I found out it's because they eloped. They didn't want the big wedding, they were in love and just wanted to be married. So, they packed a bag, picked up my grandpa's sister and her husband to be their witnesses and headed off to Yuma.
Here's a copy of their marriage certificate. I cropped off the registration information.
We don't have a photo of them taken at their wedding. Their focus was to get married and start their lives together and they didn't worry about photos.
