For example, we knew our old jagged patio was a tripping trauma waiting to happen… so we invested some of our wedding money towards replacing the old slate patio with a new cobblestone paver version, which created the perfect place for a big wooden buffet table full of delicious gourmet eats and a grilling station for the chefs (John’s uncle and nephew) – who donned customized aprons that read: “You may now kiss the cook.” The newly paved surface created the perfect place for grubbing as well as mugging for the photobooth that we rented for the occasion.
“There is, in fact, very little data on the sexual interests and experiences of older people,” Friedan says.
People want to believe that seniors are asexual beings, but seniors desire — even need — romantic relationships, just as we do.
And what could be more personal than hosting the 75 person affair in our own backyard? From the invitations and decor to the food and entertainment, we personalized as much as we could (without breaking the bank) by doing everything with our own four hands.
And because the event was at our home sweet home, we were able to put money that otherwise would have been spent decorating a venue into our own home improvements (gifts that kept on giving even years later).

The topic of romance and seniors is not only sensitive, but something that, frankly, can make some people uncomfortable.Traditionally, a senior’s love life is not discussed, let alone researched – as author Betty Friedan’s acclaimed book, “The Fountain of Age,” notes.You’re cordially invited to our very own big fun, small cost backyard wedding (held here in Richmond, VA at our first house).so you might as well make yourself comfortable, because we’re breaking it all down – food, decor, invites, and more.We got married on 7/7/07, our exact two year anniversary of dating (which just happened to fall on a Saturday).
