Glenn Murray Smith - Wedding Photos and The Early Years of Marriage

This is the final entry in a series of photo posts about my maternal grandfather, Glenn Murray Smith. Many of these photos were taken at my grandfather's wedding to my grandmother, LaVerne Rutherfurd, on November 1, 1941 in Los Angeles. There is also a photo from their honeymoon. In addition, I've included some pictures from the early years of my grandparents' marriage, particularly the period when they lived in Forestville, in Sonoma County, California.

I am very lucky that my grandparents and their family members took so many photos, and that they preserved and labeled them so they could be passed down to me. I am doing my due diligence in scanning them, putting them in archival sleeves, and storing them so they will last many more years.
