Rudy & Jo Ann met in 1958 and were married just two years later. Their wedding was an all-day affair and they served both lunch and dinner to their guests. When Walt Disney World opened in 1971, Rudy & Jo Ann made their first trip with their only son. This was the beginning of a long friendship with the Disney Theme Parks. The couple visit almost every year, and now that their son is grown he is a Disney Vacation Club member. The below photo session was a gift to commemorate their 50th wedding anniversary, and the couple even provided their original wedding photo from August 4, 1960! I feel so honored to share the story of this very special pair, and can only hope that my husband and I can share the same warmth and love after 50 beautiful years.
