The Reception

Hello Dear Reader,

On October 17, 1940 Grandpa (Laning) and Grandma (Caroline) Wes and Mary WeddingHall gave a reception for the newlyweds in the Spanish Fork First Ward cultural hall. Wes (Carter) had to sell his deer rifle to get enough money for gas for the trip to Spanish Fork that evening. He and Mary arrived at the church building about 7 o’clock and guests started arriving soon after that. 

The evening was a huge success. So many people attended the party it was hard to get them all in the cultural hall. Here’s how the young couple appeared that evening:

I absolutely love that picture. Grandpa is so handsome and Grandma is so pretty. It makes me miss them.
