Elijah Douresseau and Hazel Pete

This is a picture of my paternal great grandparents on their wedding day (this is actually one of my favorite family photos).

They looked so cute together, don’t you think! =P


(click on the photos to enlarge them)

And this is a much later picture of the happy couple…


(The first picture makes them look light-skinned for some odd reason though)

    WOW! What a blessing for you to have gotten a hold of such beautiful pictures! They are priceless! I was excited when I found some black and white pics of my mother from back in the day but never of my great grandparents.
