A bunch of photos of my parent's wedding

My aunt Judy gave me a copy of my parent's wedding film on DVD. I decided to do some screen shots of the video and I post them on Facebook. Here is the link to those photos.

I decided to post the screen shots rather than the video itself because it allows for us to look at photos of individuals. I do not know who many of the people pictured in the photos are, or sometimes if I just made a guess. If you know who any of the individuals are, please send me an e-mail at describing the photo and explaining who they are.

I hope you enjoy these photos.
