56 Years and a Video Story: The Wedding Dress

Ellouise and Jim Schoettler

56 Years ago today

December 30, 1955
Assumption Catholic Church
Charlotte, NC

I tell a story - The Wedding Dress - about the dress in the picture.
To celebrate our Anniversary I am posting a video version of the story - it took almost 40 years for the story to jell.

This is a true story that was talked about in our family from the day I purchased my dream wedding dress in a thrift shop in Fresno, CA. The story blossomed with each new life-change - my daughter's wedding to the births of her children. That's one of the joys of family stories - they grow and change with life.

This telling was recorded in 2009 for the Stories in Time TV program. I often tell it because I love it.
My daughter Robin Schoettler Fox is a writer. She published her version of this story.

Is Robin's version of this story in a book I can buy or online?

Congrats on 56 years!!

The Wedding Dress story is still one of my favorites : ) The wedding pic of you and Jim is perfect. You look so beautiful. And Jim was—and still is— such a handsome man : )

Happy New Year to you both.
