The Right Time and Place

Photograph of Wedding Outfits from 1889 and of Jessie Tucker and Muriel Lampell

There are so many stories of where and when couples choose to marry. Some make their decisions based on familial ties, wanting to appease their parents or grandparents in keeping up with traditions. Others choose their wedding destination because of a significance to location; such as where they first met, where they fell in love, etc. And there are also those who throw aside the traditions or the significance and decide on the where/when due to constraints in time combined with a sincere desire to be together for the rest of their lives.
