Pat & Bruce’s Wedding

Today marks the 49th wedding anniversary of my mother’s sister  Pat (nee Hoover) and Bruce Papapietro.

Their wedding took place inside Boone Memorial Presbyterian Church in Caldwell, Idaho. Pat and Bruce still reside in Caldwell, Idaho. My grandmother, who turns 95 this year, and all of my mother siblings live in Southern Idaho, except Paul who lives in Southern California.

These are photos from before, during and after the wedding.
