I Do - Redos
Wedding Wednesday

Blushing brides and shy grooms say I do all over again to the person they've been married to 50 plus years. Maybe the children and grands urge them to redo, or maybe they didn't have their dream wedding the first time around, whatever the reason, they appear happy to redo. Both couples married during the 1930s, remarried during the 1980s.
