I had the pleasure of photographing one of the sweetest weddings I have ever done. Carol and Dale McCracken remarried on what would have been their 50th wedding anniversary. They were married for 36 years and separated in 2000. They remained good friends and never dated anyone else. Dale said “Neither of us fell out of love. We used to talk about when we were first married about growing old together. That was before we knew what old was.”
Love is Patient! Love is Kind!
What a look! Priceless!
The ceremony was at Dale’s home, their pastor was Rev. Preston Ponce, retired who drove in from Florida!
Have you ever seen such a cute couple?
They left in a red 1937 hot-rod Chevrolet sedan provided by their friends, Cyndi and Daniel Shoule, who own HotRod GetAway in Greensboro, NC. Friends and family attended from all over the country.
Both Dale and Carol are from Ohio. Carol was a long distance switchboard operator until Dale Jr. was born, and Dale managed large-machine companies in Ohio and West Virginia. They had 5 children and moved to Greensboro in 1985. Carol became a kindergarten assistant for Guilford County Schools and is now a home caregiver. Dale opened a Backward Glance Antiques at 212 Settle Street in Reidsville which brings us to this last picture. It was spitting snow and so cold, but it looked like they were dancing, so happy to have found each other again! …but the greatest of these is love… Timeless..
