This Footage Of A Grandparents’ Wedding From 1944 Nearly Brought Me To Tears…So Sweet!
“Besame, besame mucho
Each time I cling to your kiss, I hear music divine
Hold me my darling and say that you’ll always be mine
This joy is something new
My arms enfolding you
Never knew this thrill before
Whoever thought I’d be
Holding you close to me
Whispering “It’s you I adore”
If you should leave me
Each little dream would take wing, and my life would be through
Love me forever and make all my dreams come true”
-Jimmy Dorsey, 1944
We love to explore the items and stories of days past. And while often times a lot of the items we feature will have exceptional monetary value, it’s the sentiment and nostalgia that we’re really after. The following clip from Bliss Productions features the original footage a man found of his grandparents’ wedding in 1944. It’s so rare that we get a chance to see first-hand what life was like back in the good old days, which is why footage like this is so special. So sit back and enjoy this trip down memory lane.
