A Classic Snapshot of a New York City Wedding in the 1940s
This is one of my parents’ wedding photos, circa 1943 in New York City at the Hotel Roosevelt. They’re the couple on the left.
Guy Lombardo and his orchestra were playing in the hotel this particular night. When Mr. Lombardo was told that a young couple in the room had just been married, he played a song for them.
My beautiful parents are Francis and Irma (Metcalf) Burke. Their friends in the picture are Agnes and Nick Patio.
I adore this priceless photo. ~shared by @lizburkerobinson
