When we were in Spain last month my mother-in-law brought out a few old photo albums I had never seen before. This one had lots of wonderful photos, and many of them were taken the day she hosted a 25th wedding anniversary party for her parents.
José García and María Consuelo Martín were married on 8 September 1933 in the tiny village of Villar de Ciervo, Salamanca, Spain. By the time of their 25th anniversary they were living in Madrid. The wedding vow renewals were held at the Madrid church of Santa Teresa and Santa Isabel. What is fun is that everyone atttending the lunch signed the book, and the signatures are still legible!

She hosted the festivities on 6 September 1958.
She looks so young here!
