It is June so you know what that means…June Weddings!
June has long been the leading month for weddings. There are many theories on why this is but one to note is that June is the month that was dedicated by the Romans to the queen of the gods Juno. The goddess Juno was the protector of women in all aspects of life, but especially in marriage and childbearing, so a wedding in Juno’s month seems favorable.
The Archives has some wonderful images of brides, weddings, receptions, showers and some of my favorites, the wedding getaway cars!
Below is my personal favorite image of the wedding getaway car! I was intrigued when I noticed that the car said “Bob and Bobby” and so I did a little digging and found the wedding announcement in the Kingsport Times-News. Turns out that this car was decorated for the wedding of Bobby Gene Scott and Bobby Jean Taylor! I also love the drawing of the shotgun on the side of the car!
