The newlyweds and their Maid of Honor and Best Man greet guests at the reception. The “receiving line” is an age old wedding custom that is not always a part of today’s events.
Some newlywed couples stand at the back of the church to receive their guests congratulations or go table by table to greet everyone at their reception. But, often, in the case of a large number of attendees, this would take too much time and delay the reception from starting.
This was the case of Dom and Mary. Mary’s family was in the Italian Deli business so they knew everyone in town. Everyone loved this darling couple and were anxiously anticipating their union. So no one turned down the chance to be at this lovely event. There were 400 guests at their wedding!
Here are some pics of the “place to be” on September 6, 1953.
The Bridal table. Lots of Chianti flowed in celebration of the day:)
I call this the “cute cake picture”. It reminds me of Dom’s sense of humor and the playfulness they had between them.
In future years, this played a big part in their every day life.
I love the silly story about Dom coming home after work.
Every day when he came home, Mary would hear the door close and say “Is that you Dom?”
And every day, he would reply, “No, it’s Joe.”
It’s was a little joke between the two of them.
Just one of the simple things that made their long lasting love so sweet.
