“Lynn and Bob ~ 1975”

Description from Lynn Eileen Chicky LE: Yesterday, (3-15-10) was our 35th wedding anniversary! This pick includes our wedding colors -- we had a "rainbow" wedding. My sister was my maid-of-honor & she wore yellow. My bridesmaids each wore blue, green, & lavender & each carried matching flowers in baskets. Even the cake was decorated in those colors! Bob wore a white tux. I wore a white gown with yellow ribbon detailing on the gown and veil. I carried yellow roses attached to the same Bible my Mom carried at her wedding. It has since been carried by my sister and my daughter at their weddings.

Of course, it snowed the week of the wedding, so I included a big snowflake!

I love Bob more now than the day we got married, which I would never have believed to be possible. Ah, youth! :)

    Oh! Thank you for sharing your wedding day story with us Lynn! Your pick is so beautiful and bright! Very springy looking (even if you had snow!)
    Congrats on #50 too!!! :-D
    (How’d those yellow fluorite beads go Out of stock so fast?)

    And, like you, I STILL don’t know how to upload pix either. :-( Someday…… Oi!

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Thank you, Mary! I guess snow in Indiana in March is the risk you take for getting married then…..LOL

    The yellow fluorite beads have been out of stock forever — I chose them from my Wish List! ;)

    BTW, everyone has always teased us about getting married on the Ides of March…..guess we’ve had better luck than Julius Caesar! 8O

    Glad to know I’m not the only Chicky who doesn’t know how to upload pix yet!

    Happy Anniversary! Congrats! Wow! Sounds like you have a beautiful wedding day! And a good life together to last 35 years. Love…what a wonderful thing!

    Thanks, Lee! It WAS beautiful — even though there was snow on the ground, the sun was shining in through the stained glass windows of the church, which was so lovely! :D

    What a wonderful story Lynn and I am so glad you shared it. I too wanted a rainbow wedding, but Hubby convinced me to elope….. true love. Oh well it snowed on our wedding day too ours is january 6th. We did recieve a beautiful 25th anniversary party. I will saave my story for more picks at a future date.

  12. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I never heard of carrying a bible with you! How wonderful. Tell us more! I need to learn up loading too, but I did put in my profile. More to come later. gotta leave for MOms. Got a feeling I will miss alot.

  13. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Thank you, Dawn! BTW, I was a child bride of 10 years old…..how about you? ;)

    I joke that we had a rainbow wedding because I am so indecisive that I couldn’t decide on just one or two colors for our wedding!!! ROTFLOL

    Eloping sounds romantic — no pressure of planning a big wedding! Sometimes I think couples should secretly elope, then come home and have their wedding with family & friends. No pressure for everything to be perfect because they are already married…..of course, that may only work in theory……LOL

    Congratulations on 35 years of happiness Lynn! Here’s to at LEAST 35 more… :D

    What a beautiful pick to commemorate your special day! I’m not at all surprised that it was a rainbow wedding – rainbows are very popular with the 10 year old set! ;) In fact, if anyone asked me, I’d say you weren’t a day older than 40 – you wouldn’t fudge your age would you???

  17. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Fudge? Did someone say fudge? ROTFLOL

    Sorry, I am easily distracted by chocolate……

    Lori, thank you so much! Yes, Rainbow Brite was very popular then…..LOL…..with the pre-teen set! ;)

    Oh Chicky and Hubby~ Congrats on 35 years! How amazing is that???!!! Great for the two of you. Can’t wait to see pix! Hurry Hubby! You had snow…my hubby and I had a flood the day before our wedding :( All turned out well though!

    Kathryn Lobert says:

    Congratulations Lynn! – first on the wonderful marriage (although you have a bit of catching up to do – we will have our 38th anniversary this summer – I am pretty sure I got married as a zygote!) I seem to always be talking to young women planning their weddings. They always want the “perfect wedding.” I tell them that there is no such thing – something always goes slightly awry, but no one else will notice. Then I get to the main point – it is not the wedding that counts, it is the marriage! With the wedding, you go in single and come out married – do that and the wedding is a success. Work on the marriage more than the wedding and things will definitely be more in the right order:) The other congrats is on this lovely pick which certainly is a gorgeous tribute to a life and marriage well-lived. It is work – but worth it:)

    Oh Lynn I just said my congrats on Julia’s pick; but, cannot let this beauty go by without another comment on a great marriage. I love my husband more than ever each day that goes by. (we are just a little more vocal lately.) If I had married him first this would be 46 years and yes I was a child bride too (I was 5) :)

    My dear Lynn, what a pretty fresh pick to celebrate such a loving occasion! Congratulations on 35 years of wedded bliss!
    You and Bob were adorable children! You & I have often joked that we were both 10 years old when we married “our” Bobs!
    You have grown into beautiful grown-ups with such a lovely family. I love all of the pictures of your many blessings!
    I must say, my brides maids had the same picture hats and carried a basket in 1974!
    You & Bob looked happy then and you look happy now…ain’t love grand?

    This was a beautiful conversation to read!
    Congrats again!

    Little Round Chick says:

    Congratulations Lynn, you and Bob got married the same year my son was born. Richard and I were married the week before Christmas 1965. There was snow on the ground but the roads were clear so everyone could get to the church on time. Like so many of the LB Beaders I, too, was an infant bride. :D And now I am happy to say I am enjoying my second childhood. After we reach 39 the years go retrograde. I’m about 10, I’ll be 9 in November. :D

    BTW Lynn this is a beautiful pick.

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Oh Lynn how beautiful the wedding was! Thanks so much for sharing these pictures! I will at some point add pictures too. I was accused of being Jail Bait when we married. I was a child bride but ofcourse quite legal. WE maarried at the Chicago Court House in the Judges Chambers.

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Thank you so much, Debbi, Nancy, & Dawn! It’s so funny how young Bob & I look in those wedding photos! I had just turned 20 in January and he was 2 weeks shy of 26…… 8O

  51. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    Lynn, the coincidences continue…my Bob is also 6 years older than me…he was accused of “robbing the cradle” so to speak…we were gasp…18 and 24.
    You and Bob still look young chicky!

  52. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    That’s so funny, Debbi — “robbing the cradle” is the phrase that was used regarding us, too!!! ROTFLOL
