Of all of the USNA weddings that we’ve photographed over the years, Yvonne and Jack’s has to be the cutest! It was a beautiful ceremony followed by an intimate gathering at the Severn Inn. Jack and Yvonne’s story is evidence that love never dies and you are never too old to fall in love.
Jack is an 87 year-old retired colonel from the Naval Academy. He is a ’50 academy graduate, a jokester, a gentleman and a widower who fell in love once again.
Yvonne, the smiling, glowing bride-to-be, was another widower who also fell back in love.
Jack and Yvonne first met at a luncheon put together by her daughter several months after the unfortunate death of her husband. Jack gave a eulogy at his funeral and then the two met once more at the luncheon. Jack comments, “Funny how things work.”
Jack and Yvonne were so spirited and full of life and love! We were truly touched!
