Hi! Welcome to my new blogsite! It’s been my labor of love for the past week to make it more user and reader friendly.
In celebration of love on this Valentine’s Day, I’m very proud to showcase this gorgeous couple who used to be my next door neighbor – Bob and Mary Margaret Clegg. The Cleggs are in their charming 80’s and got married in a private ceremony in December 2011. It was so private that even I, as the next door neighbor, was oblivious to it! LOL. So this photography session was a belated wedding gift.
A little bit about their love story – they had known each other since high school and have had double dates with their previous spouses. After being widowed for several years, they reconnected when Bob moved back to Madison from Mississippi. Over the course of about a year, Bob took care of Mary Margaret when she was recovering from her knee surgery, lovingly attended to her beck and call. Thereafter, their friendship blossomed. It only made sense for them to take the next step into marriage…because the love they have is real stuff – the kind that values the traditional vows of marriage. “I’m very lucky,” Mary Margaret would always say. Bob insists otherwise; that he’s the one who’s lucky. I think they are both lucky to find each other.
They are a great testament that you can find REAL love at any age. When God finally sends you the right person, you will know it in your heart.
Have a great Valentine’s Day!
I have a sweet spot for loving couples whose love has stood the test of time. If you are celebrating your 30th, 40th, 50th or 60th wedding anniversary, I’d love to capture your love story.
