All wedding anniversaries are milestones worthy of a celebration. A 50 Year Anniversary is a rarity that is deserving of an extra special celebration. Arlene and Jerry are one couple who were excited to reach this milestone. Their journey together started when the young couple married, Arlene was 20 years old, Jerry was 23. The year was 1968. Flash forward 50 years later; they have two adult children, a daughter-in-law, three grandchildren and a 20 year old Cockatoo named Coco. Their children asked them what type of celebration they wanted. Their answer: an intimate gathering with their family and closest friends. A lovely Victorian Tea House was discovered and booked. The theme came together - an elegant 50th Anniversary Tea Party.
