About six weeks short of 100 years old, my grandmother passed away peacefully.? I wrote about her on her 99th birthday last fall as she was glamorous at any age.

I’ve been spending some time this evening carefully turning over memories of her.? I wanted to share her beautiful bridal portrait.? She always loved calla lilies and I adore her enormous and simple wedding bouquet.

The formal portrait of the bride and groom – They were married at the Gore Estate in Waltham, and though the spiral staircase behind them is on a painted backdrop it does look like the spiral staircase at Gore.? Perhaps it was even painted for the purpose for the Waltham photography studio.
