There is nothing more exquisite than love. The only thing that can beat that is old love, like documentation of a love that lasted 60-plus years. While probing through his grandparents’ home, one young man found the treasure of a lifetime.
Doyle and Mary Jane got married on May 17, 1944. But it would take some 64 happy years before their grandson found and uploaded their matrimony with the heading, “My Grandparent’s Wedding.”
The footage reveals a journey back in time of the good ole days. One that holds up beautifully thanks to the crisp, pristine color and condition of the vintage film on which it was shot and preserved. The grandson wrote, “My great-grandfather had one of the early consumer 16mm cameras. The Cine-Kodak from the 1930s. The film itself, though scratched, is in amazing condition. Notice the incredible color of the Kodachrome.”
And notice we do indeed. This exceptional raw footage was shot in and around Portland, Oregon, in the 1930s and ’40s. The authenticity of the film has held up so well; you can’t help but feel immersed in their time. One that see Doyle has a well-dressed service man with his stunning bride Mary Jane. The music provides for more nostalgia. Songs like “I’ve Heard That Song Before” and “Heart and Soul” serve as a sentimental backdrop as Doyle and Mary Jane share kisses in the grass, walk out of a wedding chapel, and drive off in their car complete with a “Just Married” sign.
This something you have to see to believe.
SHARE the love and pass it on.
