Sneak Peek: My Parents’ Wedding

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

Coming Monday: my parent’s wedding, as written about by my parents.
From this picture you might be thinking that my parents had a very traditional wedding, but no, of course not. After all, they did meet in Berkeley in the-part-of-the-70’s-that-was-really-still-the-60’s.

    Ha! My mom has always thought this picture was silly. She said “yeah it was this weird artistic thing the photographer said he always did, so he made me take it. Whatever.” But its a funny thing, with our current artistic taste in wedding photography, it’s now very stylish, no?

    Yay! I can’t wait! It really is a great picture, even if it seemed cheesy at the time. I love seeing weddings from the 60s and 70s. I think it’s the fashion of the time I love so much, haha.

    I can’t wait! I think I might love your parents a little.

    I thought Altamont was the end of the 60’s. Just saying.

    Not in Berkeley, my friend, not in Berkeley. (But you knew that…)
