Forget "Wedding Wednesday"
June 15th, 1943
June 15, 2019
It's a beautiful afternoon. The sun is shining through the tops of the blossomed trees. You can see shadows cast on the bright green grass. The setting: Harrybrooke Park. It's the wedding day of Frank and Elizabeth Harden. They have chosen to get married at their estate in New Milford, Connecticut. Close family gathers to hear the exchange of vows. At age 63, this was Frank Harden's first and only marriage. He settled down for the love of his life, Elizabeth - 29 years apart in age. They set the scene for so many years and weddings to come. On June 15th, 1943 we celebrate the anniversary of Frank and Elizabeth's wedding day, and the first wedding on property.
The sun rises on June 15th, 2019 - a bride and her bridal party are arriving at the Harden House museum to prepare for a very special day. The limo pulls up, and the girls head into the museum with arm fulls of makeup, dresses, shoes, and anything you might need for the big day. A morning of preparing goes by in a blink of an eye. A ceremony begins in the Gated Garden, where two lovers exchange vows and family and friends look on. A tent is set up near a pavilion, the 150 person guest list dances the evening away to the Billboard's top 100 hits. On June 15th, 2019 we celebrate a union of love Harrybrooke Park, 76 years to the day of Frank and Elizabeth's wedding day.
Happy Anniversary, Frank and Liz
and here's to a joyful life for our new bride and groom!
