I ordered this for my Granparents 60th anniversary and was very happy with the result as were they! nnThe paper contained a news story of a search and rescue mission the day before, that my Grandfather's Best Man was called to and he missed the wedding.nnThat was such a lovely connection and totally unexpected!
