Wedding Wednesday - Home Movies

Home movies, a phrase that has gone the way of the 8mm camera. As I was describing this film of my grandparents, father and other relatives yesterday, I couldn't find the phrase to accurately describe this film turned VHS turned MP4. Home movies, that is the term that suddenly, finally popped into my head last night.

My paternal grandparents, Dagmar Alice Viola Anderson and Howard Bierly Matthews were married on October 21, 1031 at the home of her parents in Manchester, CT. The reception was held nearby at the home of her brother, Elmer Carl Ragnar Anderson. Someone in the family must have had a thing for gadgets because some of that reception was captured on film in these home movies which also include footage of my dad apparently visiting Manchester and Cape Code with my granparents.

Get out your popcorn and enjoy!
