June is the month for weddings, today as in days of yore.

This is a favorite photo of my maternal grandparents in as near-as-I-know their wedding photo. George Louis Gurney was in the U.S. Navy, stationed at the Great Lakes Naval Training Facility (in Michigan), preparing for World War I. Lucky for me, the war ended before his training did; he never served. He married Clara Magdalen Joseph in 1918. The purpose of this post is that sometimes our ancestors just got married; they had no "big deal" with special clothes, parties or ceremonies. 

Do you have a photo of your grandparent's wedding? What were they wearing?
